In Praise of Normalcy
I know I only took one day off from work for the chemo; however, four days of “nothing” are difficult for me. You know I have watched too much television when I begin to wonder if the game show “Lingo” is still in development and recruiting contestants or if these are just reruns on the Game Show Network. Today, after a brief visit from the home health nurse, I came to work with joy and excitement. How often does anyone say that on a Monday? I am delighted to work today. I am delighted to be alive today. I am delighted that this first round of chemo was not so hard on me.

All those times I searched for the excitement outside of the routine and was frustrated with boredom, I missed the key point. I was breathing the air, feeling the sun on my face, and had choices of how I could spend my energy. Abraham Lincoln was right when he said, "Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be." I am happy today. I am most grateful for this day.

What are you grateful for today?

This is my story about being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 39. I thought I was out of the woods, but four years late it came back. This is my quest to be a two-time survivor.
