Check, check, double check

I have my horse. Check
I have my sword. Check
I have my skull panties. Check
I have my family and friends. Check
I have lot's of love and support. Check
I have lot's of wonderful people praying for me (THANK YOU!). Check

I seem to have all the check's in place. But for whatever reason i can't quite start fighting yet. Maybe this week is, "The Week" and we will stop waiting and start doing... I'm ready...



My new fighting buddies

Dear Lady Leontien, what a great winning attitude you've got. I'm picturing you on your beautiful black horse wearing nothing but your skull panties and your sword ready for the big fight.

Sending you strength, love, prayers and hope. Hugs too. JB

Jent said...

Love and Hugs!

Jill said...

Praying for you! Love the Maya Angelou quote. That bear is full of powerful stuff. Smudge says hello and kick butt.

Jill said...

Dear Leontien:
You may not be ready "quite yet" but you WILL BE ready when needed. You are quite a woman and I continue to send you prayers and hugs.

Buttons said...

My Dear Leontien I love your quote it is so true. Sending big hugs and I love your new buddies. Fight girl! B

Lori Skoog said...

Leontien. Great quote and you are still sporting your stellar attitude. Waiting is not easy, especially when you are ready. It won't be long now. Yesterday we were supposed to drum(African) for the Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Rochester, but our part got rained out. Normally over 10,000 people participate..don't know how many braved the weather. We will be drumming for you!

I love Julia's comment! Reminds me of an episode of Pregnant in Heels where the woman (a zookeeper) had a painting made of her, naked, pregnant, on her horse. I think you should do that, too!!!

Leontien, Your courage is in you and when it is needed it will be there. The words your blogger friends have sent you say it all. I wish I could blot illnss off the face of this Earth. Too many good wonderful people have these trials.Picture us all beside you holding your hand. Wouldn't that be a long line of friends? Hugs Cheri

Your already fighting, as is everyone on this journey with you, now go kick some arse, you can do it!
