Yesterday, I got to celebrate my 40th birthday, and it was the best birthday I ever had. Not only did I get a surprise phone call from the Shawnee High School Choir singing Happy Birthday, but I got flowers, decorations, candy, cake, cards, and lots and lots and lots of love. It made the whole day even more special.
I didn't know I would make it here five years ago. I was determined to make it, but if determination and prayers helped everybody survive cancer there would be few cancer deaths. I have become closer to the people I already love in my life, met new friends who kept me sane through the cancer circus, and lost friends to this disease.
I wish I had some awesome words of wisdom I found through the past five years but I don't...I just try to earn every day I get to wake up.
