Happy to be alive


Each day I wake up is a blessing. I'm so happy just to be able to LIVE and enjoy each day! I had a friend take me to the store "Savers" yesterday. it was my first time going there. It's a thrift shop where pants are $5 I also found a belt for $2 and a bra for $3. I was thrilled to find clean pressed clothes for so little. I had a milestone yesterday. I went to wear a pair of shorts to the gym and found out that they are way too big for me now. So I tied them up with a ribbon and wore them to the gym anyway. It was a blast showing my close friends how much room was in them :)
I think it also helped me work harder on the elliptical machine to have seen that kind of progress. That same friend pushes me to do more weight lifting and I can feel it paying off. What used to be hard is getting easier!!! YIPPEE!!

so thankful for my many blessings for a family who support me and friends who care for a belief that is keeping me hopeful even in the face of such a trial. Here's to praying we all have a wonderful day full of the little joys that make us smile

what is up with sherrill graff?

As you know I have been a power house last year earning the top 100 founders circle, and working hard to help provide money for the family while my husband has been out of work.


Since September of 2010 I just haven't had the motivation I needed to keep up.
Now I know why....

In the past my doctor said "the only thing wrong with you is you are overweight"
Well this years physical blood work and mammogram hasn't turned out that way.

my cholesterol is down to 147 and my weight is down 37 pounds but my thyroid is low and they found that the lump I had last time has doubled in size as well as they found 2 new lumps one of which is larger than the old one. To my it feels like the size of a walnut.

I'm going in for a few more tests next week.

I'm going to have to lean more on my faith. I know God can cure me if it's his will and I pray that the lumps are not cancerous.

No matter what I'm still going to convention to be with all of you in July for our pre convention events!!!!!
the LNS Instructors and Barbara do everything anyway... really, all I do is talk a lot :)

Please add your prayers to mine.... I don't want to miss out on my 20th year celebration with stampin up, the walk across the stage with all my friends cheering me on, and I really want to have many more years to enjoy life to the fullest. There are so many thing I still want to do!




Thanks in advance for your prayers on our behalf. I'll do my very best to overcome this trial and go on to watch my grandchildren grow up!
My mom passed away from cancer at 46 and I'm already 47 years old so there is nothing saying I have to give up on a great future!!!!

Thanks again for your prayers!!! I know they help!

May God bless you and your family,
Sherrill Graff istmpnv@aol.com
