What are you grateful for?

Let's give that a try now. My previous post was all about the angries but I need to balance that out with something positive. I will never forget the day one of my Bffs called and told me she had a cancerous tumour on her cervix. She was newly married and a new Mom and it didn't seem possible. I remember feeling numb. I remember feeling like my life, as I had known it was changed forever. My life? What about her life?
Since that time there has been radiation, misdiagnosis, chemo, and progression, hope, no hope and alternative treatments. This is not the way it was supposed to be. It is supposed to be early detection, treatment, cures and sighs of relief. This journey I am taking with this woman I love and her family that feels like my family is rich and scary and we laugh and we cry.
Yesterday she had surgery and she came through it well and with it brings more hope.
She is brave and she has become more beautiful with every day.
She is fighting for her life.
I truly believe she will Kick Cancer's Ass!
I am lacing up my boots in case she needs a hand.
It helps me put things into perspective.
I am so grateful.
