Happy Sunday everyone. Just wanted to check in. I am halfway through my 6 chemo treatments! I think I am doing better recovering from this round than all the other rounds. Scan next Saturday to measure progress in the war against the BCCs! Go MMMs!
I am full of love today. Loving my family, my friends, my life. Some advice to everyone out there still following this…please, please, please don’t take the good things in your life for granted.
Have a husband, wife, partner, girlfriend or boyfriend? No matter how long you have been with them, try to look at them with through the same lens as you did when you first fell in love. Honor those qualities that drew you to that person every day and don’t let life’s everyday details dull that passion.
Have children? They are your greatest legacy. It is a tremendous responsibility and honor to raise children and see life renewing itself through them. Hug them every day (even if they don’t like it…I have found that bribes work in those cases).
Also make time to honor your friends. With the pace of life, it is easy to let distance come between you. Don’t let it happen. Instead of turning on the TV, call a friend…stay in touch. You’ll feel better for it and so will they. Your true friends are the family provided to you by fate.
And speaking of family…embrace them. Love them for all their quirks and crazy interfamily dynamics (all families have these…I don’t care how “normal” they are). They are your blood, your roots, your foundation and have a good deal to do with making you who you are today.
I love my husband, my children, my family, and my friends with a fierce passion. That love has given me incredible strength that makes me feel like I can conquer anything, including this pitiful disease that presumes to try and cut my life short. Well I say to the BCCs…you have no idea who you are dealing with.
And that is all I have to say for now. 🙂
