Early each day I walked on the beach, wrapping myself in its tranquility, loving the clean morning sky, listening to the gentle waves whisper their caress upon forgiving sand. This was my sanctuary, a place to renew, born again for a new day.

2010, Breast Cancer came, striking with all the impact of a speeding freight train. My being collapsed, devastated, frightened not knowing what to do. Life stopped.

In my pain I heard the shore call to me. As before, I arose with the morning light, the sand and sky beckoned to me. The tide came, lapping and whispering against the rocks. A mermaid called from the curl of a wave—Never give up, Strength—you are loved, Hope—everlasting, Courage—always.
