LSNED: September 12
I caught up with a special friend today for coffee. She is a 2 times survivor of breast cancer, and is now dealing with the cancer she has in her liver, bones and lungs. She is not in remission, but the cancer that looked like it would take her life about a year ago, has stopped growing, and is buying her some additional time.
As a young mum of 2 growing boys, and godmother to my own daughter, I have watched her deal with insurmountable pain, and the threat that her young life will be cut short! Yet, she is strong, has a wonderful sense of humour, and is one of the most positive people I know. I love her dearly, and seeing her today reminded me of a super important lesson.
No matter what life throws at you, and how bad things may be, remain strong and positive. There is always someone who is suffering and dealing with more than you!
