So I am trying a new look here. I don't love be prepared for it to change again. But the polka dots were becoming unnerving. I'm going for plain yet fashionable. Or you could say I am avoiding grading papers because I have never been fashionable. Whatever.

On a serious note, please say a little prayer tonight for my Aunt Linda. She has been struggling with colon cancer and has now found out it has spread to her liver. Seriously, if there were pictures in Webster's and you looked up the word aunt there would be a picture of her. I grew up eating her gourmet southern cooking, playing at her house, and believing whole-heartedly that when she said I was beautiful it must have been true. She has the biggest heart and the most amount of love I have ever come across in one person in my entire life. Her kids, my cousins, encompass the best parts of her and I can't even imagine how hard this is for them.

The word cancer has entered my conversations of late more often than I am ok with. My family members, family members of friends, friends of friends....too many. Every time there is another diagnosis I think maybe someday there will be a cure. So here's what I suggest. Send that out into the universe...if you hear the word cancer think the word cure....the power of positive thinking never hurt anyone right?


  1. Your aunt will be in my prayers!

  2. Wow! I can't believe you didn't mention this to me today on the phone. Obviously I haven't been keeping up enough with the Burrow blog. I like what you said about thinking cure every time you hear the word cancer. I will pray hard for linda and the kids. I can't imagine what they are going through. It was great to talk to you today! I miss you!

  3. Oh Jana, I'll be praying for her and your whole family. Let em know if there is anything I can do.
