A journal of my experiences with breast cancer to inform those who are interested and to help any one else who might have just been diagnosed.

“[She] will have no fear of bad news; [her] heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.” Psalm 112:7

Senbazuru is the Japanese name for one thousand paper cranes held together by string. An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane. Katie has been working on her Senbazuru project (although hers are not held together by string) for nearly a year, and finished up just a week before Chinese New Year, so it was fitting for us to see her finished project for the first time for our Chinese New Year celebration.
Here is the largest...

and these are the smallest. She made a centerpiece from the bowl of the smallest ones, along with her 1000th crane and some chopsticks.
Quentin and Katie decorated the whole house with them, and these were the leftovers.

  1. So many blessings and so much beauty came out of her project. She did a great job making all of those.
