i’m getting a tattoo

On the trip I’m planning to Tampa I’ve made time for certain things.

The kids have busy schedules to see friends.

I’ve got plans to shore up my hug supply.

There are places we can’t wait to go. Things we’re looking forward to doing. People we can’t wait to see.

With some close friends going as my cheering section, I’m getting a tattoo.

Now, I already have one. On the inside of my right ankle I have a kite that represents Peyton’s fight with cancer.

But THIS tattoo is all me.

The location - the inside of my left wrist – is meaningful because it’s my working arm, the strong arm, the one that has had to pick up the slack.

The type  - it’s being done by the nippletastic Robin Plemmons – it represents ALL the friends that have by my side as I go through this.

The tattoo - “i may not be perfect but parts of me are pretty awesome” 

It says it all.

Sometimes we need that reminder to glory in our awesome parts.

    Bloody hell, that’s brilliant. And I now want a tattoo that says “Nippletastic”.

    Those parts of you that are awesome pretty damned big. And I’m not just talking about your boobs. Can’t wait to see that perfect tattoo when it’s done.

    Anissa: you are an inspiration! I say leave the qualifier “…pretty…” out of the tattoo sentence. You are awesome, period!
