Hello, dear friends.
I must admit that this has been a rather emotional day.  It's the first anniversary I've celebrated without Peggy Anne.  Oh, how I miss that girl!
Mama and I helped my sister today with her pre-op appointment (Achilles heel) and did chores and errands for her.  It felt good to spend the day with them.
Then I got home feeling kind of pooped and a little down until two of you dear ladies (Thanks, Lib and Cathi) IM'd me.  When this place was called a "support board," this is what they meant!
I just wanted to thank those of you who have been so dear to me for being with me on this 5-year journey.  I love you!

Congrats on hitting the five year mark, my dear Beck. 
That's what this is all about... the support and caring and sharing.  I'm so glad I found these ladies round about the same time you did and that we always have each other. 
Who else could I say so much to without uttering a word?  I love you Miss Beck.  Hugs, Sis

Friends are God's way of taking really good care of us.

Five years seems to be coming around for lots of this group, and that means about five years with our breast friends in most cases. Congratulations on meeting this five year mark, and may you have five x five more. Lets see will that make you near 75? I hope you stay well and enjoy the years.

I know you miss Peggy. 2004 was a long hard year and it began early by losing Susan in late 2003 along with a couple other friends. I keep thinking of Mel's mother in law and thinking I should call, strange how you miss friends you never saw that often. But I do miss so many of them and their posts.

Jo-Ann is on her way back to Texas tomorrow, please say a prayer for her safe journey.

Hugs MK

Happy Anniversay, fellow classmate! My 5 year anniversary from dx was 6 weeks ago, but as you recall, we did chemo at the same time. Five unbelievable years ago.  Who'da thunk it?

Hugs to you for the first one without Peggy....her anniversary of passing should be coming up soon, hard to imagine.  I remember when she came into the lovely hotel in SL, looking so chic with her post-chemo buzz, lymphedema gauntlet and a sharp blazer. She was all that!

Here's to the next 5....

Hi Becky,
Congrats on the five year anniversary, my dear. I'm right behind you in a few days. Hard to believe so much time has gone by. I miss Peggy everyday too. So much has happened in the last year that I wish I could have told her about. I know she's cheering our freshman chemo class for reaching this milestone. It's a great one and I'm grateful for every day of good health that I have. Here's to the next five year anniversary!
Hugs, Carole
In All Things, Give Thanks

stout rope; She clings to one end, I the other;
She calls it friendship; I call it hope....

Happy Anniversary, Becky!

So glad we're here to celebrate with you. I know our angels are celebrating, too. Wow! It doesn't seem like a year since we lost Peggy. I'll light a candle for her on the 28th.

May the rest of us be around to celebrate your 25th with you!
