This hero doesnt wear a cape...she should but :)


I am so proud to have been asked by Joy @ The Joys Of, to join in this special day for our friend Amy @http://foursistersinacottage.blogspot.com/ Some of you may know Amy, some may not.
Amy who is currently fighting Breast Cancer,is an amazing woman and friend to so many. I read her blog with each new post,just waiting to hear how she is. Some days i laugh so much at her wicked sense of humour that my tummy aches, and other days when Amy doesnt feel so amazing i sit at my computer feeling helpless and i cry with her.
So today a bunch of us have joined hands to form a big circle and offer a huge hug to Amy and her family to let them know we are all here for them in our own ways.
Now to Amy i offer the words of this amazing song written by Australias own Deltra Goodrem. I used to play this song to my husband (who is currently in remission from cancer) when he was feeling like "Why Me?".....I hope you dont mind.

' BE STRONG ' Lyrics By Delta Goodrem

Are you swimming upstream in oceans of blue?
Do you feel like you're sinking?
Are you sick of the rain after all you've been through?
Well I know what you're thinking
When you can't take it
You can make it
Sometime soon I know you'll see

'cause when you're in your darkest hour
And all of the light just fades away and
When you're like a single flower whose colours have turned to shades of gray
Well hang on, and be strong

We're taking each step one day at a time
You can't lose your spirit
Let live and let leave, forget and forgive
It's all how you see it
And just remember keep it together
Don't you know you're never alone

'cause when you're in your darkest hour
And all of the light just fades away
When you're like a single flower whose colours have turned to shades of gray
Well hang on, and be strong

No you're not defeated
And soon you'll be smiling once again
Then you won't have to feel it
Let it go with the wind
Time passes us by
And know that you're allowed to cry

'cause when you're in your darkest hour
And all of the light just fades away
When you're like a single flower whose colours have turned to shades of gray
Well hang on and be strong

oh oh
hang on, hang on
be strong
da da (in background)
hold on and be strong


Amy you are wonderful and brilliant and strong and we admire you and thank you so much for sharing EVERY aspect of your fight with us.
Now kiddo you keep smiling that wonderful smile and keep kickin' some serious Cancer Butt ok !

We Love You,
Shannon xo
