Thoughts from Cathy


Dream what you want to dream.
Dream what you want to do.
Hope that your dreams will all come true.
For the whole world is made up of dreams
And hope is the stitch that seams
 dreams Into reality for you.

Dreams form in the soul and from your heart they flow.
Into and everlasting running stream.
There they merge into other dreams
and make a better world it seems
  The whole world is dependent upon dreams.

Dreams will make you strong, when things seem to go wrong,
They’ll pick you up and carry you away.
So when you’re in despair,
And feel like no one cares,
Your dreams will help you make it through the day.

Dreams that are let go, have no heart and so
They slowly and sadly drift away.
So hold on to yours tight,
Grasp it with all your might,
And your dreams will come true for you someday.

If you dream what you want to dream,
Dream what you want to do.
Hope that your dreams will all come true.
For the whole world is made up of dreams,
And hope is the stitch that seams
dreams Into reality for you.

Cathy's Poems

The wind blew up, The wind blew down, The wind blew dirt all over town.
It's in my hair. It's in my nose. It's even stuck between my toes. So now I'm praying for some rain, so I can feel clean again. CLC

Wild Flowers
Clippers in hand and leather gloves, a glance up for help from above,
I step in my flower bed ready for war with weeds and leaves and dead plants galore. The roses were the first to attack, shooting thorns in my arms and back. Vines then grabbed me by my hair twisting hard to hold me there. The battle I fought and won, while knowing this war had just begun. Cathy Collar

Three States Join Forces With The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society


Now through August, you can support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society by forgoing the incentive item offered in appreciation for giving blood. In turn, the Oklahoma Blood Institute, Texas Blood Institute and the Arkansas Blood Institute, will make a monetary contribution of similar value to support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

It's your turn to 'doubly give' for those with these blood disorders... through the gift of life-saving blood... and support the research and treatment initiatives.

Briely Update!

We are back from Cooks!

Briley had a 1:45 appointment at Cooks today to start Interim Maintenance I phase of treatment. All was going well this morning before we left until Briley over heard us talking about going to Ft. Worth. She's smart and has it figured out that trips to Ft. Worth are no fun. She whined a good bit about not wanting her port accessed. I don't blame her, especially at her age and not completely understanding the reasoning for it. We arrived in Ft. Worth a little early, so we first stopped by the Ronald McDonald House to drop off 4 grocery sacks full of can tabs that many folks have been collecting for the house. This was the 3rd time we have dropped off that many tabs! The folks there were very appreciative of them and it will go to good use! Then it was off to the clinic. Everything went as planned. Her counts look great! She did cry during port access and then discontinuing it. There is a little playroom in the clinic where the kids play before and during chemo infusion. Briley met a new little friend there that also has leukemia and she is in the D.I. phase of treatment right now. That is Briley's next phase and the one we have been dreading the most, but after talking to the mom of this child, we feel much relieved that the treatment hasn't been to bad for her daughter. She said the only thing that really worried her is when her daughter's tears and urine turned red, but that was normal side effect from a certain chemo. After treatment, we walked over to the hospital to see Lianna and Gracie. They are doing very well and their hair is quickly growing back! It started getting late and we decided to come back home before Briley started experiencing nausea, which has been a non factor at this point. I really wish there was something more we could do for the cancer kids and other seriously ill kids at Cooks. But I've got to remind myself that we are fighting our own battle right now and that God will show us a way when He is ready. Having to go through this with Briley and becoming friends with other parents and hearing their stories has touched us in ways we would have never thought possible pre-cancer. Cancer is ugly, especially when it affects kids. Thank you for your prayers and please say an extra one for all the kids with cancer.
