I first want to apologize for slacking on my blog. After my last session of chemotherapy I was just exhausted and needed a break. I was then blessed with company for Thanksgiving. Chemotherapy and thankfulness are hard to comprehend, but it depends how you look at it. There is just so much in life to be thankful for that I will never be able to include them all. I am so grateful to be alive each and every day. I believe in God and know that without my faith I do not know if I could make it. My family is so loving and takes such good care of me. I am so blessed to have children and am so grateful. I am so fortunate to have them as so many people are alone. I am grateful for life, my home, my friends, pets, having food to eat a TV to watch and on and on. I just want to remind everyone not just those with cancer but everyone that we must always remember that each day is a gift. No matter what you do or do not believe, life is a gift from the day we are born.
The world so full of tragedy, stress, poverty, criminal acts and more that in the scope of it all when you just stop and think of it all, everyone has some type of problem in life. It goes back to the old saying that “it can always be worse”. If we all thought of that on a bad day, we would be grateful and thankful around the clock. It is just so easy to get caught up in our own issues. Having cancer is so real and scary. I get frustrated as I feel sick often and weak, then I freak out that we have truly not been able to keep up with our mortgage, let alone our bills. Then, I remember I could have no home to try to save, no car, no family and etc. My eyes are open. In fact I am lucky to see for real and walk and talk. Not that they were not before, but I just have days that it is hard to step out of my “box of problems”. I am working hard on myself to “keep my eyes open”, as many are in pain, poverty, alone, have cancer, can’t walk, no home and more. I am so thankful and grateful to be here, working hard to keep alive.
Life is a journey. It is full of ups and downs. As we walk the walk and live each day, there will be many awful and stressful times, but every once in a while something wonderful will happen and things will be calm for a bit. I will force myself to live for many more of those special moments. No matter how bad today is, tomorrow may be the best day of our life.
God Bless Everyone and May your Holidays be blessed,
