Calendars are marked with days of importance. Some are annual celebrations. Some mark goals we are striving for. Some are big. Some are small. Some we remember. Some we do not.
Two years ago, I added another Day To Remember to my list. August 12, 2010. It was a Thursday. At approximately 6:00 pm that day-never-to-be-forgotten, I was told my life would drastically change.
That was the day cancer became part of my reality.
That day was the beginning of a journey that taught me how fragile life really is.
That was the day I learned how tough I really am.
That was the day I realized I’m actually not tough at all.
That was the day I learned how to truly let go and let God.
That was the day I was forced to say goodbye to the me I had always known only to become a better me.
I wrote specifics of that night HERE. So much has changed since that post. I wish with everything in me cancer had never come calling. But had it not, I would have missed the chance to grow. To learn. To be more.
Rather than dread the 2 year anniversary that is rapidly approaching, I want to celebrate. Life is good. It isn’t the same and never will be again. But it is really, really good!
Won’t you join me as I raise my glass to this journey called Life. With all its ups and downs, it is still a heck of a fun ride!!!
Cheers, my friends!
