It was 1:03 pm on May 21, 1959 when I joined the world as the youngest of six (two
boys four girls). I've been told that makes me a Taurus - Gemini, but I don't really have any idea what that means.
I've also been told that in the Chinese astrology I was born in the year of the pig - THAT explains a lot!
My Mom sent home three names with my Dad for the kids to choose from; Diane, Martha and Sara.
My five siblings all chose Martha but some how it transformed to Sara by the time my Dad got back to the hospital - gotta
love my Dad! If only he'd been able to do something with my middle name - I'd tell you what it is but I'd have to kill
April 25, 1981 I married Dennis, my D or Mr. D. He's a really great guy who completes
me. It was a truly weird day. We had a simple ceremony in my eldest sister's home. It rained the entire
day until we started saying our vows when the sun filled the room. My brother was seriously freaked.
I used to work for a very large computer company but I took a buyout in '92. Since then
we moved to Florida. I took up stained glass (something I never seem to be able to do lately) and volunteer for my community.
In August of 2000 I was diagnosed with Stage Three Uterine Cancer. I underwent a complete
hysterectomy, radiation and chemotherapy. With the strength and support of my D and my family I have been cancer free
and doing very well. Cancer is not something that you wish on anyone but I wish everyone could experience the healing.
You first learn to take the power from the word 'Cancer.' The first time you hear the diagnosis you tune everything
else out. Suddenly you are faced with your own mortality and everything you might lose. It is bad for the patient
but I believe it is worse for those that love you.
