MOSTLY MY HEART SINGS
Vicki L. Flaherty
I made a commitment when I was diagnosed with breast cancer to fully experience my emotions. I saw an opportunity to more deeply understand myself. My writing let me recognize and accept my deepest fears, sorrow, and sadness. I was surprised at how capturing my feelings on paper helped me move through my experience. Creating each piece was my way of finding peace and reaching for hope. When I shared my work with others, I was always surprised that somehow the words painted pictures that enabled them to see and understand my feelings and experiences, and that they found something more universal to which they could relate. My wish is that others might find a glimmer of peace and hope within this book’s pages.
