journal: One Year Later, 26 December 2003
<i>Friday, 12 December 2003<br/>One Year Survivor</i><br/>One year ago today, I found my lump. One full year of fear and joy and courage and unfettered love of (or do I also mean for) MY HEAVEN.
<i>Friday, 26 December 2003</i><br/>I have found a quieter place within myself—the quiet pleasures of the morning with my tea, my dog, my candles—the quiet acceptance perhaps of my new self. The surgery and treatment did cut and burn away the remnants of the impatient, insecure me—The me who would find fault with work situations, wanting to put the world right from my point of view.
The year is winding to a close—my big eye opening year.
