Saturday morning I got up and got some breakfast, cleaned up a little around the house, did a load of laundry ... and decided ... I'm going fishing and I did. I grabbed two of my rod and reels, my tackle box, some bottled water and headed up to Lake Bridgeport to fish with my long time friend, Phil, and his cousins for the day. I cannot tell you how it felt to be 'normal' again. Goodness ... fishing ... and I love to fish. I caught two big crappie and a smaller one and the others fishing caught about as many. Fishing has always been a passion of mine since I was a little girl. My Daddy would take us out to Lake Grapevine, bait our poles and I would sit and watch my bobber forever just waiting to catch that fish before my brother or sister. The love fishing stayed with me throughout my life and I am blessed to have my friend, Phil, who has a little cabin on a slew at the Lake Bridgeport. Praise the Lord.
I read on my Facebook this morning a post from Sheree LaFavers Bennett, Nurse Navigator at the Joan Katz Breast Center, located inside Baylor-All Saints Hospital, that her sister has been diagnosed with recurring breast cancer which has spread to her lungs and bones. I am going to try to copy/paste the info below.
