I want to write about cancer but I don't know just what to write. It came into our family 2 years ago when mom unexpectedly found an unusual occurance on her tongue. Now, a few years, miracles, prayer, radiation, doctors, tears, fights, victories, drugs, hopes and days later we face it again. Mom is a survivor and I know she will fight this but it makes me so mad that we cannot kill the cancer completely and any time it can creep back into our lives like an ugly nightmare. Mom, I love you so much and I am so proud of you. We are by your side but it is your strength, spirit, attitude, courage and happy smile that will win this fight :-)
I know how much you love bougenvilla bonsia so here is my gift to you :-)

US Open

I was fortunate to watch the mens quater finals and mixed double finals for the US Open this year. I saw Chela, Ferrer and Paes on center court at Arthur Ashe stadium in NYC. Watching Leander Paes was exciting since he is from India and I was very familiar with his game and past. My dad is an avid Tennis fan so I grew up watching Tennis religiously.

Luke and Maureen

Luke is my godson. He lives in Boston with his mom Maureen. We share the same birthday and it feels like yesterday when I was in the hospital waiting for him to be born. I can't believe he is 7 now. Maureen and I have been friends for 11 years. We met in Boston when I lived there between 1996 and 2003. I love Boston and I love going back there to see my friends. Just can't do the cold and the high cost of living anymore. Luke, Maureen Alana and I goofed off this weekend and played in malls. I think the shopping is much better there than in Atlanta. It was awesome to see them. Maureen and Luke just lost their apartment to a fire. The reality of the fire really hit me when we went inside and saw the destruction. They are doing really well though and have the prayers and support of friends and family.
