Isn't it funny how the nesting thing appears just whenever-whether it's a good time or bad??? Just want you to know that my thoughts and prayers and faith will be with you- as always. Love and hugs, Linda

You don't know me from Eve, but I've been pulling for you since discovering your blog a few weeks ago, and I'm still sending you every good vibe I've got.

Continue to be strong. And "well done" on liberating those shoes!

Tamara

Remember, sweet friend, that you are a warrior! Strong and resilient and brave! And when you find yourself faltering, remember that you have many, many hands to help hold you up! And if those thoughts don't soothe you, remember that you are not going to have to wear a bra for a good 3 months! Waaaaa Hoooo! Freedom! ;o) wink wink!

I love you Kelly Bird! I'm sending all my strength and giggles your way tomorrow.

Much Love, Tamara

PS: Here is a beautiful poem I found that I thought you would enjoy:


Bird by Pablo Neruda

It was passed from one bird to another,
the whole gift of the day.
The day went from flute to flute,
went dressed in vegetation,
in flights which opened a tunnel
through the wind would pass
to where birds were breaking open
the dense blue air -
and there, night came in.

When I returned from so many journeys,
I stayed suspended and green
between sun and geography -
I saw how wings worked,
how perfumes are transmitted
by feathery telegraph,
and from above I saw the path,
the springs and the roof tiles,
the fishermen at their trades,
the trousers of the foam;
I saw it all from my green sky.
I had no more alphabet
than the swallows in their courses,
the tiny, shining water
of the small bird on fire
which dances out of the pollen.

that you are looking at the cancer as a way to grow and learn gives me such inspiration as i look at my own life and struggles.

Hey sweet Kelly gurl. It's nearly 3p.m. here on the East Coast and I'm hoping you're through surgery. It's funny how we'll throw away shoes (or toys or clothes) during a stressful time. At least it was productive. You deserved all the good times and things that were happening to you before this. Life's crazy roller coaster just took you for another wild ride. You'll get off it and say, "So there. I did it." Praying HARD for you!

I prayed for you and your family today, Kelly, and will keep it up. I'm looking forward to hearing a good report from you after the surgery ;-)
xo,

Dear Kelly I continue to hold you in my thoughts and prayers...I have prayed for each and every person involved in your medical care and for both you and your family. I send you strength and love and hope and I know that resting in God's arms you are well taken care of. Peace be with you and comfort during a speedy recovery. Take good care little bird!!

It just so happens that I bought a new pair of shoes today. Did I ever tell you that I have a shoe addiction too? Now I see I'm in good company with it! I feel like I'm living in your alternate universe. Everytime you post something, it's something that's going on with me here. You posted about a bluebird and...I had seen a bluebird that morning (I hardly ever see them here)! I hope that you have been as atuned to my prayers for you dear friend! I've been thinking of you all day...

Tanya Peacock

you know you are at the top of my prayer list, but today i am sure i wore out the Father's ear with my constant intercession : )
love you and yours great big bunches!

Andrea

Kelly,
I'm not a religious gal, but I WILL be sending ALL of my postitive thoughts and energy your way. This is serious stuff... they have to go through Canada customs and everything! Ha ha! No really, I hope your surgery went well, and you are on the road to recovery and healing.

Hi Kelly, Mary told us all your surgery is over and I'm hoping you will still be able to enjoy your birthday today in some small way. Your blog made me feel humbled seeing how you manage to stay happy and able to see the beauty around you! Also amazed you actually walked on those shoes!!!!!!
Hope you'll soon be on your feet again and looking forward to your next blog! Love and hugs and thinking of you on this, your special day!

Sweet, sweet Kelly~

There was a song in my heart today...it was a song of serenity and calm. I thought of you and and felt the need to send that song to you. SO from my heart to yours, with love...Get back on these dancing feet of yours real soon!

Love you...sandee

Mija Marie

i love the quirky way you interact with life... it is so validating! he he i love that you're the kind of person that when life hands you lemons, you say "Huh. i was hoping for strawberries. Hhmmm, what am i going to do with these lemons? Well i could always make lemonade but why? AHA, i'll make a pitcher of fresh margaritas, put a rose in my hair and do the mexican hat dance!!! ...right after i clean out my shoe closet And find my black strap high heeled sandals." :-D well it sounds like something I would do, so i figured you would too. in fact, that's what you are doing now! this experience may slow you down a bit, for now, but i know you are looking ahead, past this time to the time when you will dance, yet again, to the beat of the congas... or is it the steel drum? maybe the high hat? ;-)

i was so happy to talk with you today! i was filled with emotions and so relieved to hear my friend sounding good and strong. i did not want to stop talking with you but knew when you said you needed to rest, that indeed you must. you know how i feel about you and that you are constantly in my thoughts and prayers. my love and prayers also go to your sweet family as they care for you with love and concern.

I, like so many, am very grateful for you, Kelly! You are like a breath of fresh air that danced in on a warm southern breeze.

te amo, mi compadre de la alma.

katie

dearest kelly,

Hey sweet Kelly, heard from Mary that you are home from the hosp and resting. I continue to pray for you and your loving family. Wish I could sit with you and just hold your hand a bit!! Keep resting so you can be strong and healthy again. Love, Linda

Wynna

My dear sweet Kelly,

I was thinking about how much strength and faith it takes to go through such a terrible thing as this with as much grace as you have. You are truly amazing to me because you have taken a journey that would completely paralyze most of us and you've shown us that life really is about making lemonade. Jason and I pray for you every day and I just know in my heart that if anyone can kick cancer's butt it's you! Please know that I am thinking of you and that you are always in my heart.

I found this quote that seemed so very fitting and I thought you might like it:

“The will of God will never take you to where the grace of God will not protect you”

Stay strong!

With much love,
Wyn :)

I found your blog from Seth's collaborative project. I'm so impressed with your strength, your will, your lovely photographs, and your incredible and colorful art. I'll be back often to see what you create next.

Thank you for opening up your heart and allowing us to jump inside!

I certainly am enjoying retracing our steps.. your repost is so very beautiful!

xo, me :)

Kelly Jeanette

I hope you are feeling better now. I found it interesting how you depicted cancer with spinely yelloe legs (yellow has always been a HAPPY color). Glad I found you through Seth.

Seth

Powerful post Kelly. Really has me thinking about perspective. Thanks for reviving this one!
