I was pickled tink to notice that I have a new follower this morning! Welcome, Faye!
I followed her Blogger profile to her website and there discovered a favorite new motto: It's a great life if you don't weaken. She writes, "It's always seemed to me that the difference in those who go beyond the basic are those who don't weaken, don't let worry or fear of failure or embarrassment stop them." Well said, and amen, sister! Praise the lord and pass the ammunition! ;) So, if you don't mind, Faye, I'd love to steal that slogan for myself for a while!
Tangentially related, I received an invitation last week from the U of M, asking me to participate in a study titled "A Quality of Life Comparison of Women Who Experience Treatment-related and Spontaneous Menopause." I responded this morning, saying that I would participate. Why? Do I have extra time on my hands? (No.) Are they paying study subjects a stipend that I could so desperately use? (No.) I'm participating because, if there's any chance that this study could result in information that might, one day, prevent a woman from going thru the years of pain, both physical & emotional, that I went through . . . well, then it's worth it!
And, with that, back to work I go.
