I don't know where to start. I heard this weekend from my family, and I recieved an e-mail from my cousin's wife that one of my cousins found out this week that he has Prostate cancer. It is in the later stages, but they're going to fight it. I am at a loss of words to write, It is hard when it is your own family that is suffering. You never think it will happen to you or your family, but man, when it does, it sure hits hard.

I was going to post all about my new start and even include pics, but that all seems so irrelevent at the moment, I don't feel like I should be enjoying things like this, while someone I know and love is staring death in the face. It goes to show that life is short, and we really should take each day as a gift. Nothing like a tall glass of reality to remind us of this!

I may write more later on stitching news tonight but for now, I just...yeah.=(
If you could keep my cousin in thoughts and prayer, I would greatly appreciate it, thank you!

My prayers are with your cousin...I know we found out recently my uncle has Lou Gehrig's disease, he almost died a few months ago when he stopped breathing. It really does hit home when it is your family, someone you hold dear to your heart. Donna
