I wish I could have responded to each greeting but in my heart, I want to hug each and everyone who remembered me.
There are also a ton of things I thought I should be thankful for despite my situation. Of course, there are moments of anxiety, frustration, pain, depression and sadness but looking back at these things I am grateful for, they make me smile.
I have learned to let go a little. Smile more. Appreciate more. Love more and say it to people I love meaningfully at every chance I get.
Thankful that cancer has taught me to live life now and appreciate what lies in front of me rather than worry about what lies ahead... these make it worth every while.
