Why am I starting the week off on a somewhat "down" subject? I suppose for two reasons. The first is that last week I lost a very dear, old friend to cancer. He loved his life, his family, and he fought valiantly to keep living. The second reason is this morning I had an early-morning appointment at the hospital lab to have some blood work done. As I looked around at all the people waiting for various tests it was evident that many of them are very ill. I was reminded to be thankful for not only my life but the lives of the people I love. I am a cancer survivor, and I am very thankful for every single day I have.
I hope you will make the most of each day and never waste one because
