Brickhousechick Award

Happy Birthday Susie!

Happy Birthday Susie!

It is not often that I award someone the distinguished Brickhousechick Award.  Not because none of you are deserving of this honour, but mostly because I forget all about it (brain fog).

Today however, is a most magnificent day!  

Susie at Susie Lindau’s Wild Ride, celebrates a birthday!

So what, say you? (hey, that’s mean)

A year ago, Susie’s life took a dramatic tumultuous twist when she found out she had breast cancer.

As it does to anyone hearing the dreaded C word, the news came as a tremendous shock.  After all, she was a wild ride type of gal (said her blog)!  She was athletic.  She ate healthy foods.  She did everything right!  What in the world had gone wrong?

She underwent a double mastectomy and is now, CANCER FREE! {insert huge applause here}

The amazing thing was that although Susie went through very rough periods throughout the year trying to grapple with the news and recover from her surgeries, her attitude and faith remained in tact.  She continued to fight on and work her butt off to get herself back in shape so she could resume her wild and active life.

If that isn’t a BRICKHOUSECHICK, I don’t know what is??

I have come to love this woman I have never met and wish her continued happiness, health and funky dance moves!

Feliz Cumpleaños, Amiga!

Join me in wishing her the best!

  1. Oh Maria, I love your award, just wonderful, you are so creative! Wishing your friend Susie a truly happy (although belated, sorry about that, just catching up today) birthday. What a true inspiration she is and how lovely of you to do this for her. I’m smiling from ear to ear at the sheer love, warmth, beauty in friendship and cause to celebrate in this post. Yay and I’ll say it again, Yay!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

      1. The aim was to sound kid-like, but, it looked like “barf” day to me, too.

        I’m a teetotaler, well, again. Alcohol + me = scary bad times. Practically swore an oath to Cimmy long ago… I went to drink during a particularly dark time in my life. Won’t touch it again.

  2. HA! I love this! She is the Wild Rider and I was also so amazed with the positive outlook she had during her time with the Big C. She’s a warrior and definitely deserved this award. 🙂
