    Today's good thing (and we are only half way through) was 5 minutes deep relaxation after 2 hrs of gym and yoga. My knees will be yelling tomorrow, but oh, the sense of calm and achievement.

    @nikkid Big sigh!!! Beautiful! and they are the most important things aren't they? I admit my Partner and kids are super important...right now however hahahaha Im living alone and enjoying thoroughly healing time and its been the best part of this journey! :) 

    @Ally Jay Isnt it incredible how things work? you think with all the treatment just how damn difficult it would be to continue to enjoy your knitting...and yet you DO!!! what sorts of things do you knit??

    What a beautiful thing to post Mel. It really gets us thinking of all the simple things that make us smile and for all the things that we have in our lives that we hold dear.

    For me, today I'm so happy that my husband and I have a weekend to ourselves and for the glass of bubbles tonight that I have been looking forward to since the start of my treatment. ( to celebrate the end of my 1st stage )

    @Ally Jay a lady after my own heart. I always have a knitting project on the go and carry knitting in my handbag. Most that I  know that given up on knitting or they are cleaning out Mum's stuff I end up with patterns and wool. I have oodles of wool waiting for me to get into. Need to finish a couple of projects before I start the next one.
    Click clack! Take care xx

    Today I looked forward to my TaiChi class with a wonderful bunch of people. Today I actually felt good for the first time in two weeks, it was such an exhilarating feeling. I even managed to live in the moment most of the day enjoying the feeling of "well". Today I felt I could get through this, even though I am only starting the ordeal.

    @Unicornkisses sounds like a great day! So happy for you...and that's the whole point isnt it? Inspite of just starting, you were able to enjoy the moment. Tai chi is something ive always wanted to do! Its on my list! Hugs xo

    My husband always gets me through each chemo session . He is my rock. He took me out to have coffee the other day when I was feeling a bit down and not feeling like being there. As I was sitting in the coffee shop I noticed a small child sitting near us who just kept smiling at me .she had such a lovely smile, I soon snaped out of the gloom I was feeling and had to smile too. It is definitely the little thing that get us through. I enjoyed  lunch with friends last week and when my daughter in law asked if I liked to come for baked dinner on Sunday night, I think life is pretty good.

    Hey Wendy! I love hearing about these wonderful husbands! It is something I definitely missed through this its so incredibly lovely to hear! Interesting isnt it something as simple as a child smiling at you can bring you to be in just that moment! Friends and family well youve had a great week! Hugs xo

    @Brenda5 just read your post and you hinted that some days are not so good!  I do hope you got a lot of benefit out of Conference; they can be hard work and very beneficial! 
    Take care xx
