The start of a new life


Today I was on a hunting high. I had shot 2 osceola turkeys earlier this week, and today I shot a really nice spotted sow hog. On our way back to where we are staying, just out of the blue Dale wanted oranges. We stopped at a local road side stand, and got to talking with the women inside. Betty is a cancer survivor, and Linda had just recently undergone a mastectomy for breast cancer. She looks great, but as usual had some questions and concerns about her treatment.
This really brought home to me why I am doing this. Just a little over 2 1/2 years ago, I was in her shoes. I was staying positive, but there were concerns. I hope seeing that my recovery is nearing complete, and that my life has gotten back to as normal as it can be, will help her cope with her ongoing recovery. I hope everyone realizes that cancer can be just a hiccup in your life. Keep your spirits up, maintain a positive outlook, lean on people when you need support, cry on someone’s shoulder when the stress gets to be too much. But PLEASE never ever give up. Life is to precious to waste a minute of it. As always “Love the life you live”!

Congrats on the osceolas – someday I’ll get to FL and get one!
But a bigger congrats on staying positive about things! We’ve had so much cancer in our family, it’s hard to stay positive from the outside looking in much less the one staging the fight!
