life, love,art. heart failure and assorted ramblings

Don't Talk Like That...

I write to find out what my heart thinks....

I write to expose and work through the ugly parts of this raunchy disease. My words always help me understand that in this life there will be times that are crappy painful and unexpected but tucked in there are the amazingly wonderful, too. That is when I realized the only control I have over any of this is how I chose to experience them! I realized that I could understand, celebrate can survive even better when I could express these feelings with my own words of courage, humor, and grace. I am the Queen of my own life and the choice is mine!

I am here to celebrate my life, to uncover my fears, to hold on to love, to grieve my losses, to laugh long and hard, and to learn how to live a full magnificent life with heart failure.

I am honoring my creativity, and exploring all of my emotions out loud ...before anyone can say....."Don't talk like that!"

No word from Shands- Do they understand?

Struggling with focusing on positive... Understanding that there is positive out there, it needs my patience (patience that I had precious little of, before all of this started). In the mean time, I keep myself busy with Artist Way Weekend! My favorite weekend of the entire year. Better than Christmas!


  1. Hi Cheryl,

    This is Cathy and Joy. I am attempting, not very successfully, to teach Joy about Facebook. In doing so, we came across your blog. We just want to send our best wishes and our love. We're glad to see that you are wearing the big girl panties today! Joy and I will be joining the Big Girl Panty Society. :-) We are just wondering, however, if they are referring to the size of the panties or the girl when they say big. I, of course, could qualify for either, though Joy says, with a laugh, that's not true. Does she mean I'm not wearing my big girl panties today? I thought I was. :-)
    Please know that we love you and know that the universe is unfolding as it should.

  2. You guys are too funny!
    Love you!
    Bon voyage Joy, be safe!
