Laughing at yourself!

What's that old saying about if you don't laugh at yourself, somebody else will? Well here's a page where I am laughing at myself. How could I not? My face in the picture is hysterical. This trip to Belize was just six months after I finished chemo and I was still weak but I wanted desperately to keep up with the rest of the mission team. This zip line activity that we did one day tested my will. It was so much fun and normally it would have been right up my alley, but with my energy level still being low, it was all I could do to keep up. When we were finished, my arms felt like jello but I didn't say a word to anyone in the group so it wouldn't dampen the excitement of the days activities. I still can't believe I did it! Gary is on the second page in the middle between our friend Henry, and my dear friend, Jackie. It was Jackie's husband, Roger, who took this picture. This page was so much fun to do. I used a sketch that was one of the challenges over at The Scraproom. Remember if you click on the picture, it will enlarge it so you can see the funny face!
