Beautiful, I'm glad Ladelle is your friend and blessed with eyes that see the silver lining in everything.. Love to you both xx


Love to you and Ladelle
Love you


So beautifully said.
Sending love and healing thoughts to Ladelle.


This was so nicely put. We do spent much of our bright times feeling guilty. In your lovely post you will have gifted us with something to hold onto in grief, in suffering. Such a tender thing to have. Thank you.


Your words once again have touched my soul!!
What a lovely friendship!!

Your words are so true. We are all waiting for your book. My strength comes from moving forward - keep moving forward and wake up each day thankful for what God has given us.

Lovely thoughts. I'm holding Ladelle in my hands. E


Ladelle is blessed to have a friend in you. Thank you for sharing such personal experiences and thoughts. Your words sink in deeply.


Thanks for reminding us there are silver linings.


I'm thinking you are Ladelle's silver lining.

Ladelle has the right spirit. I am yet to speak with my friend Shirley who has her cancer back. She is a beautiful soul Corey - please send your prayers. Just checked out your day in Cassis yesterday, a Kir Royal at Cassis - bliss. I miss you still ! God bless, Jx


Corey, the French papers arrived yesterday - they are heaven in a brown envelope. I can't wait to use them in a painting. thanks for yesterday's post about Cassis and the one today. Your thoughts are so timely for so many people. An Episcopal priest named Barbara Crafton, who has meant so much to me, said in her email letter for the beginning of Lent, "Be what you can be. Grow into the full stature of Christ. Use what I have given you, and take joy in using it. I will give you the energy for it if you will step up to the plate and begin. See? Feel the stream of living water that flows straight from my heart to yours? Let that stream rush with power into the world, and you will know why I put you here, in this place, at this time." Undoubtedly God gave you the mission of this blog, because it touches so many lives. Thank you.

In this world that is "all about me" so gentle to hear qualms about being the one who may have received a silver lining. You saw the lining. Too many people would have cried "So what no migraines, I still have cancer." And the difference is grace. Your spirit is needed on this earth.


I love your image of "a box of assorted chaos"--which is so often what life does bring us. I know Ladelle is thankful to have a wonderful supportive friend like you!!! My love goes out to you both

You have such a great ability to be positive even in hard times. It is no wonder you beat your cancer. I think you will live a very long life!


Corey, I needed this post today. Praying for your friend Ladelle.
