Martha, Lisa and I went to Blue Corn for a long time in the making girls night. Martha brought gifts (SO sweet). When we were leaving the host asked what the special occasion was. We told him Lisa got her Masters degree and mine… long dramatic pause .. is just because. I totally almost said, “And I got cancer.” Once outside the girls knew exactly what I almost was about to say. When you’ve been friends as long as we have you can almost finish each other’s sentences. We all laughed the whole way to the car. You must keep laughter in your life especially with heavy stuff like this. It eases the pain and releases much needed endorphins. 🙂 First responders get what I’m talking about. I guess it’s a coping mechanism.
