The Friday evening gathering was wonderfully attended. People always think it is awkward when you haven't seen someone for several years, but I didn't feel this way in the least bit.
Saturday evening we had a nice dinner and program. When I arrived an hour late to the evening festivities, I saw on all of the tables teal nail polish with an attached message.
What a huge surprise and humbling experience for me. I didn't expect something so kind and generous in my support. I truly have amazing people in my life and am so grateful for them. I was given an opportunity to address my fellow classmates during the program. I talked about my experience with Ovarian Cancer and about trials, that we all have them and how no trial is better or worse than another. I hope my words touched someone in the crowd.
It was wonderful to be able to visit with my classmates, many of which I attended elementary school with. There were 2 in attendance that I attended Kindergarten with. I found myself saying, "This isn't just a High School reunion, it's a life reunion."
|Friends since Kindergarten; a Nurse, PA and DR. Mrs. Shea would be so proud.|
There were many, many who didn't attend our reunion. For those people, I'm sorry you missed a great time. I think the consensus is to have another reunion in 5 years because this one was so enjoyable, hope we see you there.
