Flower life

I was recently diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer. It sure puts things into perspective. 3 weeks ago I had a total thyroidectomy and this morning I came out of hospital after my radioactive iodine therapy (which is another story). But one realises that along the path of life there are often things that end so that something else can begin. I might have lost my thyroid but I have to focus on new beginnings.  I made a small journal page to remind me:

My page used flowers from GinaK Design, A Year of Flowers 1, all paper pieced with hand-drawn stems. Quote is my own.

This is a new journey and still some outstanding tests and answers, but hopefully this is a new road to recovery.

God bless you all
