I'm at a loss for naming this bead embroidered cuff. I shared it on my Facebook Page yesterday asking for a name. I received several great suggestions and now I'm asking you to help me choose. I posted a poll for everybody to vote and the person that submitted the winning name will get something super special that I created.
We found out a few weeks ago my baby brother's brain tumor has returned after 8 years of being cancer free. It also brought friends and they've spread their party to his spine so they could dance on the bar. The tumors are inoperable so the only course of treatment we have is chemo and tomotherapy (which is a form of radiation that was actually developed at UW Madison where he coincidentally is being treated).
|This photo was taken just 3 weeks before THE appointment.|
So thus the reason for my absence. I was just about to put the backing on this cuff when the bottom of our world dropped out and we got the news. After all, we had 8 years of clean check ups. Why would this year be any different?
We're a long way from the finish line and the future of this journey is beyond uncertain. We do know one thing though - we have today, and today is a gift. If we open that gift with excitement each morning we can make a difference to someone each an everyday.
If you'd like to help me name this cuff, I'd appreciate it! I posted a poll on my Designs by Dawn Marie Facebook Page. Go over to my page (make sure you like the page) and click on the the name you like best for this design.
I appreciate all the love and prayers, positive energies and wish you a day full of wonder!
Use your gift to it's fullest!
