I am now considered a 1 year Cancer survivor!
God has been good to me! Cancer has given me a new beginning, an appreciation for life that I did not have before.
Before , I was alive, but I was not living! I was bored, unhappy, frustrated, stressed out and spiritually sick. I had no Joy in life and no thankfulness. Having cancer has healed my spirit and opened my eyes to a life of thankfulness. Thankful for warm cozy slippers, thankful for V8 juice, thankful for sweet grapes, thankful for gardens and trees. Thankful that I have a family and friends that love me. Thankful that I can take a deep breath full of fresh air. Thankful for feather comforters and lazy-boy recliners. Thankful for music! Thankful for another day of life and the realization of what a precious gift each day is! Thankful for you, my friend........this may sound hard to believe, but if it meant losing all that I have learned and the person that I have now become, I would not change having had Cancer......and would choose to do it again.
