Dear Bev,
I loved your response to Flyr and couldn't let it go without posting my kudos and thoughts. Your recommendation was, and I quote:
"My best advice is this: have a good attitude, good friends, and live each day as if it could be your last. You could be hit by a bus tomorrow and be just as dead, and all the cranberry juice and vitamins and antioxidants are not going to change that. Encourage your sister to enjoy each and every day."
Bravo!!! My dear Grandmother was literally hit by a bus and died just a few months after successfully surviving her battle against cancer. I recently read a story of 2 sisters who, after visiting their terminally ill sister at the hospital, were killed in a car accident on their way home from their visit (the sister in the hospital was never told of this unfortunate accident and died shortly after). Then there was the breast cancer survivor who became one of the victims of the Virginia sniper. There are hundreds, if not thousands of stories like these.
I don't mean to sound gruesome, I just want to emphasize your point, 'live each day as if it could be your last'.  Sometimes we get too caught up in this crazy life, worrying about tomorrow, and not one of us knows if tomorrow will ever come for us. If or when it does, we need to grab hold of it and cherish every second. As cancer survivors, I think we all generally know this, but it doesn't hurt to remind ourselves sometimes just how fortunate and privileged we are to have been chosen to share this life on this beautiful earth for the time we have, no matter what our destinies are or have been. Thank you for the reminder, Bev.
And on that note, I'm going to enjoy thoroughly enjoy big slice of cheesecake for breakfast!
love to all,

You are so right that we should enjoy every moment, every day. Something I've been really working hard on! Life is way too precious! Time to put everything into perspective and realize what is truly important each and every day! Thanks for summing it up so wonderfully!

The finger of God touches your life when you make a friend.
