As I review this board this afternoon, I once again feel that cancer has been an indirect gift to me (nope, I haven't lost my marbles quite yet).
* Cancer has given me the will and ability to look something bad straight in the eye and say to hell with you. You have made an unwelcome visit to my body, and I am going to kick you sorry ass out of my house.
* Cancer has made me realize a person can walk into the unknown and come out on the other side a better person.
* Cancer has no soul. It does not care if it is cursed and damned to hell. It does not care if I bemoan the fact that it stopped by for a visit. Sorry cancer, but I had that all figured out when I though you might be coming to visit. Kinda let the air out of your party balloon didn't it?
* Cancer gave me the gift of a better outlook on life. Life is not me, rather it is everyone around me. I like being a gift bearer, whether it be a smile, a sincere hello, a thank you, or helping hand to someone. Life is good, I am here today and pretty darn sure I will be here tomorrow. Just in case, I had best give my best to others I meet and talk to today.
* Cancer has taught me that worry is wasted energy. Worry does not change anything, it just serves to clutter my mind and my day. Yes, cancer may be sneaking back into my life, but I can't help it if it is a slow learner. I will cross any bridges when I get to them, and not before.
* Cancer has given me lots of new friends that I would have never had without it. I have gained lots of brothers and sisters thru the gift of cancer. These friends are black, white, yellow, red and what ever color you may see. There are young, old and in between. There are happy and sad friends, and even one or two grumpy ones. I have new friends all around the world, many whom I have yet to meet, but I know we would get along, because we all have somenthing in common.
* Bad can be good, and it has been good to me. Stupid cancer, it has never figured that out.
Best wishes to everyone, even the grumpy ones.
