    I like it, Ebru.  Thank you for starting this.  I was just on Facebook and there is a 2013 in review thingy that brings up your 20 biggest moments.  Thought I'd share a quote from one of mine about 7 months before I was diagnosed Stage IV, "Clear PET! And that doesn't mean my dog is blemish free!" Shocked

    As simplistic as this one is, it seems to go through my head at least once a day:

    Thanks Ebru, I've had a rough month, really needed that quote today. Going to put it on my bathroom mirror to remind myself each day. 

    P.S. I like your new picture!

    Hugs, Karen

    Instead of asking, "why me?", ask, "why NOT me?"

    People will forget what you said, forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.  Another pearl from Maya Angelou.

    Thank you Ebru for this wonderful thread.

    thanks for this wonderful thread.  It's my favorite 

    May we dwell in the heart.

    May we be free from suffering.

    May we be healed wherever healing is called for.

    May we be at peace.

    Here is a Fav of mine..

    Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.

     It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self.

    Therefore, trust the physician and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.

    Wow.. These are all so awesome!!! I am so happy to read them over & over again.

    Karen, I hope the rough month is already over.. Thinking of you. Btw the pic's great because of my happiness being with a BCO sis when it was taken 😍, Sueopp!!

    Tina, I felt the rock n roll spirit behind that cute avatar of yours! Billy Joel rocks!

    Gail, orchestra??? 😳

    Ha ha, indeed!!

    Dmacw, I'll keep this one handy these days for sure.. Battling the parent squad of DS' school 👍

    Rakovina, Lillylady, MarshaMay, Bon_, Bonitaj & Benjnate, definitely! So much inspiration from each BCO sister & mods in trying to do so..

    Romansma, ooops.. 😁 I rejected Facebook's offer of that, thinking of Pajim's quote..  Maybe just one step back as Jo suggests 💃..

    Penny, I love that one as well, helped lots at dx. 

    Kandy & AmyQ, it is perfect to know by heart I am here at BCO at the right moment with my sisters who make me feel .. Well you know 😂

    Hugs & love

    We have a little piece of calligraphy framed in our hallway... one of my favorites:

    "Yesterday is gone... Tomorrow is a Mystery... Today is a gift... That's why it's called the Present "

    My other piece of calligraphy hanging near my chair and near to my heart is:

    Love all the quotes! Thanks for starting this thread, Ebru!

    Here's one of my favorites from Rumi:

    “Dance, when you're broken open. Dance, if you've torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you're perfectly free.”
