Battling Breast Cancer

During my recent treatment for breast cancer, being in my garden helped me immensely. Although I couldn't do much, just being outside and taking in the flowers, vegetables and all of the critters that go with a garden made me feel better. It also helped me not to feel sorry for myself and like I was accomplishing something, even if I just planted a couple of seeds that day.
