On August 31, 2010 I started a storytelling contest with the fictional character, Scheherazade, from 1001 Arabian Nights. My goal was to out-tell her by one extra story. At the time the contest began…I was on chemo for breast cancer and my overall prognosis was not too encouraging…at least in the estimated medical time most patients have with this type of breast cancer.
But, as a retired teacher and educator, used to setting goals…I figured I had nothing to lose so let the contest begin. You can only imagine how happy I was on May 29, 2013 when I told my 1002nd story/blog. We had a party at the house and many blog readers who live in the Summerville/Charleston area came to help me celebrate! God has been with me holding my hand throughout my on-going health challenge and I know now He has His eye on the sparrow …and He has His eye on me!
