Fill in the Blank Friday!

It's time for Fill in the Blank Friday!!!
Feel free to play along!
1.   The most selfless thing I've ever done was     remain strong and by my Mother's side every step of the way this past year and a half that she battled bladder cancer. From the early stages before her diagnosis, thru chemo, too many hospitalizations to list along the way, then the radical cystectomy surgery, and then the after care...even though she wanted to give up, I helped her fight it as long as she could. I kept a positive attitude for her..."We are gonna beat this"..even though inside I was terrified and cried the minute I was alone. She lasted a little over a year after diagnosis. She passed away July 20th, 2011 at 2:35a.m. and I was right there beside here as she took her last breath....I miss her so much! But I know she is in a better place with no pain and suffering now. I love you Momma!!

2.   When it comes to working out    I am a hater....all the way! I force myself to use my elliptical 1-2 times a week, at most. Sometimes it doesnt get done, but thats okay.     .

3.  A woman should always   count her blessings, no matter how small they are. There are many advantages to focusing on what we are blessed with versus what we are not!   .

4. I wish I could    find a cure for cancer    and then I'd   save all the other daughters and sons out there the grief and sorrow I am still feeling now.

5.  A best friend is    hard to replace! Hold those few that you have close to your heart.

6.  I can't get enough of     the beautiful Florida weather we are having now! So much better than the scorching summer we had.

7.  This weekend I am    going to the beach with my hubby,I hope the weather cooperates < crosses fingers>  .

What are your weekend plans?
