Inspired by Ali

One of my geographically-distant friends has been keeping a group of us posted by email since December on her progress through breast cancer surgery, then chemo.  She just finished her last chemo session and will begin a series of 33 radiation treatments later this month.

She said in her latest message, "I need to find a way to count down these treatments in a way that doesn't discourage me. Somehow I think seeing 33 days on the calendar will be too depressing."

Behold the 33 day herbal tea garland (inspired by Ali at Domesticali):  an assortment of teas fastened to a pink cord with tiny wooden clothes pins, now winging its garishly-colored way to my friend via the United States Post Office.


  1. What a lovely idea! and thoughtful, generous and kind. I hope they bring her back to the peak of health.

  2. A kind, cheerful act, Ginnie.

  3. You are amazing. Your friend is amazing! If ever we lose faith in the goodness of man, we have only to see things like this. People are so beautiful! Healing thoughts to your friend from one who knows. Blessings!

  4. A fantastic idea, Ginnie. Good wishes for your friend's return to health.

  5. Just the best idea, and I'm sure it will help your friend :D


Thank you!
