The Good Stuff
You know, Stevie made a comment on the last post. She said, "Congrats on all the good stuff...it's about time it happened for you." I love Stevie. But I really wanted to address this comment. I want to focus on the part 'it's about time it happened for you.' This past year has been quite an astonishing kick in the pants, and there were parts of it that were just downright awful. But the thing is, the good stuff? It's been happening right along. Really, truly, honest to goodness-ly. I have always considered myself a very blessed woman, and cancer did not change that. If I ever led anyone to believe anything else, I apologize, and I want to make it clear: the good stuff happens no matter what is going on in your life. If you don't believe me, stop what you are doing, right this moment. Look around yourself and begin to count your blessings. You'll see what I mean.
