Meet Miss Norma ~ This gave me a HUGE smile!

I saw this report, below, on CBS nightly news tonight. I have a new hero.

Quick summary: recently widowed and just diagnosed herself with uterine cancer, Miss Norma, 90, decides that rather than go through surgery and chemo, she will move in with her son and DIL. In a deluxe motor home. Whaaaat?

Since her diagnosis, Miss Norma has enjoyed one adventure after another. To get an idea of Miss Norma's spunk, you can watch the segment here:

She also has a Facebook page, in case you want to follow her adventures. Driving Miss Norma

Aww, loved that story! She's a precious lady, and her son is a pretty great guy, too.

Yes, we saw the news piece, too. Quite a lady and I like her philosophy. Couldn't think of a better way to end life.
