During this time of year a lot of people reflect on what they are thankful for. I have been thinking about that quite a bit for the past few weeks. I have come to realize I have quite a bit to be thankful for. Of course I am thankful for all the usual things like family, friends, etc...but there is one thing that I am thankful for that may seem unusual to some. I am thankful for cancer. I am not thankful that it has caused fear and tears for myself and the people that love me but I am thankful that it has given me strength. I never thought of myself as a weak person but I have come to realize that having cancer has given me quite a bit of strength, strength to face another round with chemo, strength to take another round of hair loss, strength to undergo another round of tests that leave me hoping every 2 months that things look better. In the beginning, 5 years ago I would look at all of these things with great fear but today, I look at these things with strength, I am ready, I can do this, and I am not afraid. So thanks to having cancer I have become much stronger than I once was. I am also thankful for everyday. None of us are promised tomorrow but I feel so strong and I believe that I will have many more tomorrows to celebrate milestones with my friends and family. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season, spend time with those you love and tell them you love them often, that is what I will be doing this season. Cheers!!
