Small Friends

I am always amazed these fragile little birds can survive a long, bitter cold Maine winter. I guess they are stronger than they appear. I am now 1 year past diagnosis and surgery for breast cancer, and 6 months past chemotherapy treatments. I am finding that I, too, am stronger than I thought, although I have looked and felt pretty fragile at times this past year. Facing metastasis, however, I know my life remains as tenuous as my little friends here. Though the struggle continues, I see each day as a gift, and look forward to warmer, brighter days ahead.
