What a difference a year makes!
I was in treatment this time last year. Last thanksgiving I was in the emergency room, getting fluids and morphine, That certainly is a strange feeling when that morphine hits your bloodstream. A year ago I could barely walk the few feet to the bathroom. Today I am going on a 3 mile fast walk with my pup(14 years old, but he will always be my pup). I am recovering more and more each day. I have such a love for life, I feel reborn, a second chance. I have become more giving, kinder and gentler. I am grateful for these new qualities. I believe in the balance of life(even though that is my major loss ha ha). I have lost a few things and I have gained a few. I reflect more. I feel very close to god. I love more. There is so much more to do. I want to start something new, something meaningful. Cancer has given me so much, and that surprises me to.
Just saying, there certainly is a lot to give thanks for this Thanksgiving day.
God bless and love you my friends.
