Have you ever had to force yourself to smile to try to change your mood?
Have you ever started dancing in hopes that your spirit would rise?
Have you ever had to Twist Out Cancer?
Tiny Twister has been an inspiration to me for nearly a year, and I finally got to meet her a few weeks ago!
I found her blog through mutual friends and became enchanted by her open and real style of writing, and encouraged by her stories that are so full of hope, pain, honesty, fun.
Today is her Cancerversary.
What does one say to someone who is “celebrating” their one year diagnosis of cancer? Honestly, I don’t know what to say. All I can really say is thank you, Tiny Twister, for taking this year to encourage and inspire.
And thank you so so much for letting me photograph you.
So beautiful, in fact, that I really can’t even choose which images to blog. You can see all my favorites on facebook.
