I’ve always been inspired by the Māori people and was privileged to have a Māori experience on my Honeymoon in New Zealand. So when I first heard I had cancer the images of the Māori warriors came to my mind and are a symbol to me of this battle with cancer.
Inspired by my favorite blogger and this blog post, I requested all of my family and friends to send me their warrior poses (or faces).
I made this request not only because it’s fun, but I will actually use this page. As I add the faces of all of my supporters, I will come back to this page when I feel like I can’t handle the pain. I will come back here when I’m feeling down and need a laugh. I will come back here when it feels like I can’t handle it anymore. And these images will (and have already) give me the boost to get over that hump.
So send me your best poses! Get people to pose for me!
And here are my warriors…
