...if I can ask for lots of positive thoughts tomorrow at 10.30am SA time...... its the day Ive been quietly dreading.... the day I get my results.
I'm not asking for miracles.....just that everything is as expected.....and that I have a good chance at a great future. (Yes...bit of anxiety creeping in tonight)
I'm prepared to do my bit.....I'm focussed... strong... and prepared for what lies ahead.....I just want the odds stacked my way..... and I cant help thinking that positive thoughts and prayers make a difference.

I made myself a journal.....and I'm filling it with all the wonderfully positive comments....emails...and cards that I receive....it is my personal little weapon against the blues....it brings me a smile every single time I open it... (and yes.....it was a cheapy journal....but I loved the symbolic 'ness (yes..'Mardi grammar' at work) of the tree.... so I left the cover as was...just adding buttons a special journal tag..... some special fabric... and a title.)...and let me finish with another huge THANKS for all the support....the 'Sisterhood' is indeed a very powerful thing....and let me tell you..... if anyone EVER needs support.....I will be your number one supporter....mwah!!!

  13. I LOVE your journal Mardi. And what a greta idea to load it full of emails and positive-ness!!! Thinking of you all the time... and still keeping you in my prayers!! But especially tomorrow morning:)

  14. Hi Mardi,

    Sending good vibes to you for tomorrow. You will be fine. You are strong. Isn't it amazing how we find strength when we didn't realise we were so strong. Sisterhood all the way.

    No matter what they tell you remember to remain focused and positive. I remember it was one of the most scariest days for me but at the same time knowledge is power. Once you know you can act. I found comfort in knowing the journey I was embarking and being able to decide my treatment. Big hugs, wish I could be there. Email me or ring whenever.

    BtW I am so glad you decided to keep a journal like i did. I loved mine. I kept all my emails to help me through my treatment etc I wrote some of my comments by hand and the rest throughout my treatment via blog printoffs. Love the tree cover.

  15. Hi Mardi,
    Heaps of prayers and love coming your way that all is well for tomorrow, remember big deep breathes to chase the anxiety away and you should be feelin the love baby that everyone has for you. Stay calm and stay on top!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. Sending postive thoughts your way for healthy results. Know I'm thinking of you and your family...

    Love the journal!

    Reading your last couple of blog messages here makes me feel very very proud of you Mardi.

    I commend and admire you for feeling strong and positive. That's an excellent attitude to have. Your a role model for us all.

    If I was in your shoes I would have been a blubbering mess 24/7 and not had the strength to keep positive (I cry at the drop of a hat).

    There is NO doubt in my mind that you have a HUGE support network Mardi and rightly so. Your a wonderful person who is kind, generous, fun to be with, honest, thoughtful, capable, sensible and so much more.

    I know your going to have the strength to get through whatever the next few weeks and months have in stall for you and your family.

    You can beat this and you have already shown by your recent actions your well on the way to a bright future. Keep on keeping on my friend.

    Lots of BIG hugs and well wishes being sent your way today and always. Your one special lady who I admire a lot. Good luck at the Dr's. Love from Susan (smiles1965) at Scrapboxx.

  24. Great journal idea.
    Will be thinking of u.
    Now go & bite it's bum & send it packing!!!


  25. Best wishes for tomorrow Mardi, I'll have everything crossed for you that it's wonderful news.

    Take care
