Cancer is so limited .

It cannot suppress memories,
It cannot conquer the Spirit.

  27. Congratulations on 200 followers Denalee! It seems that whatever you touch inspires others :)
    I went to the couture website and I was really impressed with the "openness" of adoption on her products. Being an adopted child, it is heartwarming to see more of an acceptance and genuine outpouring of love. . . .
    I believe that I will buy myself a birthday present and get the "courage" necklace. I have embraced many hardships in my life and this word has been close to my heart. Now it can literally be there :)
    Thanks for sharing Denalee!!!
    Love you xoxoxox

  31. Denalee!! This is such a heartfelt and truly lovely silver strands worthy give away. I have so many people dear to me that have lost the battle to cancer, some have beat cancer, others have lost close friends and family to cancer, you and your family are such an inspiration. Cancer is not all mighty and powerful it is not at the top of the food chain so to speak. It can cause pain but it can never truly take away what is dear to us for those are the things that are locked safely in our hearts and souls.

    I love the crown stamped square earrings they are beautiful.

    Love you <3

    Jill

    I love

  39. I have blonde hair and let it grow very long and then have it cut so that the hair can be donated to Locks of Love.

    I visited the Etsy Store and made it a favorite. I liked the "I can do hard things" charm. We all need to remember that.

    Discovered your blog this morning while I was blog surfing and looking at which blogs people have in their favorites lists. Cheers.
