Letty

Soft pastel portrait of a "Rattlesnake" woman

Meet Auntie Letty--a dear friend of a dear friend. She is a breast cancer survivor and a thoroughly delightful person who inspired me by showing how you can enjoy life despite suffering from chronic pain. 

Not only is she enjoying life but she is challenging herself to complete her college degree that was interrupted by family obligations. People ask her what she's going to do with her degree--start a new career? teach? open her own business? And her answer is that she simply wants to revel in the accomplishment. 

In fact Lettie has lots of wisdom to share:

Revel in your accomplishments

Love your friends and family fiercely

Choose happiness over pain

Make your dreams your reality
