As the Sun Breaks

Today, I met a dear friend for coffee. I am so thankful for her. A majority of my friends hold opposite views of me. I appreciate that because it keeps me grounded and my eyes open.

When a friend will tell you like it is, it is a blessing. Even though at the time your feeling may hurt, but it is always in your best interest.

Before I was diagnosed, I loved the winter and the cold. I was raised up north and it was frozen there for most of the year. At least it felt like it was frozen. After I went through treatments, I am not a cold weather fan, I love the Sun. I love the warmth and colors that the Sun brings to my world and that my plants grow. My favorite place in the world is at Laudermilk Park in Naples, Florida. The sand is light like sugar and being a city park, it is well maintained.

I want to move there. However, I am not a humid environment kind of girl. So, there’s the dilemma. If I was to move to Florida, I’d be by the Ocean and that is what draws me.

As the Sun breaks for you, I hope you are able to find joy in that.

Until next time my dear friend,

Hello! Welcome to MaggieLu’s Skin(K)are. I am so happy you stopped by. Here at MaggieLu’s, I offer organic and Earth Friendly handmade bath and body products. I started making bath bombs, lotion and bath salts for my family several years ago. I started making these because I was tired of all the chemicals. Later, I was diagnosed with Stage IV Hodgkin’s and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in the fall of 2013. I received my first round of Chemotherpy on October 31 that same year. By the spring of 2014, I was cancer free. I believe that we should all have access to chemical free products or at least minimal processing. I feel that the Earth is in a lot of trouble because of how we have treated it. I have become a die hard Shark Conservationist and with every purchase, I donate 10% to Shark Conservations. Fun Fact: I can not decide which Shark is my favorite. So, I have 3. If I had to choose right now...I’d say White Shark. Then, the beautiful Tiger Shark. Third, the Hammerheads (there are several).
