I went to a funeral today of a friend that had been diagnosed with breast cancer 4 weeks before I was with OC. She was in remission but started to feel poorly late October. Sadly died just before Christmas.
It was the first funeral I have been to since my father passed away suddenly in May.
I have 3 close friends with terminal cancer. All my age.
This isn’t a sympathy post. And I don’t want it to be a sad post.
I’ve tried so hard in the last 6 months to be positive about very much.
Like most ladies here I feel like I’m a sitting time bomb. Oncologist doesn’t beat about the bush about a recurrence. So I feel I’m sort of mentally prepared for another battle at some point.
My reason for posting is life is so very precious.
So easy to take it for granted.
We must enjoy every precious moment.
We must be grateful for each day. Find a positive in each day. No matter how small.
I’m sitting on the sofa snuggled with my little dog. I have a new crisp magazine next to me to browse. Nothing exciting. But this is my positive for today. After such a sad farewell to my friend.
This is a new year. The nights are beginning slowly to be lighter. I left work early today at 4pm and just stood in the playground enjoying the light.
We are all going through battles here.
I hope that you can all just think of a little positive today. And enjoy it.
I don’t post very often but I do read all the posts.
Amazing bunch of people here. Each strong in their own way. Huge admiration from me.
