Friends all over the blogosphere have united to support you.

We love you, Susie!

and afterward,

some are strong at the broken places.”

For those who don’t know Susie, she was just diagnosed with a rare form of breast cancer. They caught it in stage one. She’s undergoing a double mastectomy today. Read her latest post, The Boob Report – Laughter is the Best Medicine. Her humor, strength, and wit are uplifting and bring a sense of joy and hope, especially to those facing their own difficult trials.

I promise you, your day will be enriched by reading her words.

    Beautiful, Lynn. Thanks for the example of what a blog “community” can really be.

  3. Oh my gosh. Your photo art is spectacular! You are brilliant, Lynn—same for our beloved Susie. I’m so grateful that we’ve gotten to meet up in person. Here’s to many more gatherings and photo opps! 😉

    Really gorgeous, Lynn. That’s exactly how I remember that night, and I only had one glass of wine :). Susie’s posts are spectacular, so funny and so strong. My eyes tear up every time I think of her.

  5. You are so talented Lynn! What a spectacular picture! This is a surprise. I didn’t know there was a Susie-Strong blog tour today. I woke up and found all these beautiful tributes to her. Susie will never forget this. Lynn, you are so supportive and so full of love. I’m just so glad I know you. 🙂

      Hi Karen! Woo hoo, you are the FIRST person to visit my new website! I’m still getting it set up, with Jay’s help, but this is very exciting, and there are so many things I’ll be able to do here that I couldn’t on WP.

      One of Susie’s followers left a comment on my About page on Wednesday asking if I’d want to leave a post on Friday in support of Susie. Of course I said yes. Her name is Maria, and she left a comment here under the name brickhousechick. She must have gone to the sites of bloggers who recently left comments on Susie’s post and invited them to join in. Others might have had the same idea, but she’s the only one I heard from. But the word spread like wildfire and it took off! Maybe we can do something like this for Christine when she has her surgery. Though look at all the support she’s getting for her launch! Pretty amazing. I’m sure she feels very loved right now.

      I’m glad you like the photo. Played around with it on PicMonkey. So much fun! Karen, I’m so glad to know you, too, and I’m super happy your hubby’s surgery is behind you guys and he’s recovering. I hope he’s healing faster than planned. You’re one of the most supportive WANAs and I know everyone appreciates you. Have a wonderful weekend!
