Recently I celebrated another birthday, my 52nd. As with most birthdays since my illness it has made me reflective. I spent my birthday with my husband riding in the foothills of northern California enjoying nature. Along our drive we found ourselves on an old road that led to a watering hole popular with teenagers and young adults. It had been 29 years since we had been there and it was wonderful to recall the good times we had had with friends back in the day. Being there again reminded me of all I have and of all I have had. How much I love life and do the most I can to enjoy it. I have bad days yes, but they are fewer than the good ones. I revel in the fact that I am still here, still breathing and still loving life. I thought of how wonderful it is that I have lived another year and beaten the cancer beast for the time being. I love my birthday’s they are a symbol of the fact that it is I who am winning the battle against cancer and not the other way around. So here’s to birthday’s, may we all have many more!
Love to you all,
