It's my Birthday! I am so grateful to be 35. Thirty five is where it's AT, if ya know what I mean. This time last year I wasn't so sure bout seeing my 35th birthday. I've been having a bit of an emotional time these last few days. I realized, it's for several reasons.
I tend not to think of the negative aspects of my life too much. I love the fresh air, the beach, my friends, the trees, the owl in my yard (I could go on all day). I hope to meet someone and spend my life doing things which help others, and makes me happy.
I think I'm stalling here.
With my BEST BIRTHDAY EVER also comes a difficult anniversary. I met some fantabulous people while I lived in Vancouver for treatment. I lived there for six months full time. I spent weeks in the hospital and 6-8 hours a day with a group of people at the outpatient clinic and at the Cancer Lodge. These people were my people.
Last year some of them didn't make it. More than I care to say. That was the time when I realized I wasn't invincible. I for sure wouldn't live forever. They didn't live forever....I don't believe in dwelling on it, this blog is about living. I do feel I need to honour them though, to say thanks for knowing them.
I want to say I'm so sorry to them, to their families. There are others who I would like to know how they are doing. How are you guys? With my grateful, grateful, kick-ass, BEST BIRTHDAY EVER comes a little sadness. I'm so sorry......
