Happy Me!

Today is my birthday!!!

I am always thankful for another day and another year.

Having an illness like cancer makes it even more important to live in the moment, one day at time, and I have to admit, I forget that often.

I remember when I was first diagnosed back in 2000, I will never forget driving my car one night with the windows down, air seemed so crystal clear, and the radio was playing, and it seemed like it was just me in the world, I blasted that radio so loud, and for minute I felt like I was truely living in the moment. Sounds kind of silly but for some reason that night sticks with me.
