I have been through two operations and emerged victorious. I am on the road to recovery. My surgeon told me to have a nice life. It has been almost a year since I first found a lump. I have had two mastectomies and for those I will place two feathers in my hat. One for each operation. One for each breast. I am a warrior returning from my quest, I now have scars and raw emotions but I am stronger too. My feathers are a reminder of what I have been through because I am not quite ready to forget. I am not sure I ever will be.
A heart without dreams is like a bird without feathers.
