But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as Eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

My Sister Sheila....one of my cheerleaders!

Yesterday after my doctor appointments were all finished Larry and I ate at Smokey Bones (yummmm) and then I ran into one of my favorite stores (Flower Factory) for some styrofoam cups/lids I buy Larry for his coffee.  So, it was just a quick run-in while Larry waited in the car.  And as I was walking down the aisle, I spotted these bags on an end cap and just had to have one!  And I just had to get Sheila one too!  How do we look modeling our new Pink Ribbon bags?  :=)

Sheila just finished up her own breast cancer battle recently and is in remission.  I wish I was at that point, but I am just beginning.  She knows what I'm going through...not only physically, but mentally and spiritually.  I know she will be right there for me and be one of my biggest chearleaders.  She went through chemo and radiation too...lost her hair....and it came back all wavy.  I told her I want wavy hair like her's!  I could skip the gray/white (LOL)...but I'll take the wavy!  Although, I do think the gray/white looks great!  Her hair is so wavy and soft and just beautiful!  Take a look!
I would love wavy hair like this!  My hair has always been thick, but oh so straight!

My sister Sheila is a beautiful woman with a beautiful spirit.  I love her so much and am so thrilled that she's in remission!  I believe she's cured....not just in remission!  She was so strong through all of her treatments and I will strive to remain strong like she did.  I know I can do it!  This past year has just made me a stronger woman and God will carry me when I'm weak.  He has promised me that.  Thank you Lord!

Ok, just wanted to show off our lovely bags (aren't they cool?) and show off my sister and her beautiful hair! 

I have a Thirty One party tonight and have to get ready for it....nothing medically happening today. 

Until next time....Keep the faith....Hope is alive!


  1. Cindy, you have a true cheerleader in Sheila. Isn't she beautiful? She is beautiful inside and out. Such an inspiration to all who know her. Your divas will be your cheerleaders too!

  2. Cindy, Your sister Sheila is a beautiful person! Love her hair. What a great picture of you both! I agree with Linda, I am cheering you on as well!!!

  3. You two know how I feel about you. You are two of my biggest cheerleaders and I'm not sure what I would have done without you this past year. I agree with Linda....God has bonded us together for a reason. Martha, I have you one of those bags too! :=) Linda already got her's. I wanted my "sisters" to have one. You are both very special to me and I know I can count on you this summer. Love ya both!
