Thank you to all who took the time to post messages of support after I let you know I was talking a blogging break due to my breast cancer diagnosis.
Now that I have had a chance to process my diagnosis and am feeling a good bit better, I've found the energy to blog again. I feel that I need to put my energy into breast cancer awareness, something I was not strong at before becoming sick. I've created a new blog titled "Kate's Breast Cancer Awareness Blog" which you can find at http://katebreastcancer.blogspot.com/. In addition to the awareness content, I will be using the blog to keep friends and family up-to-date on how I'm doing. If breast cancer is part of your life -- or you want to keep it away -- please follow my new blog.
I hope that the new-found energy I have will translate into more family history posts as well. As you know, I have a lot more stories to tell.
