Having had brief periods of icky health (surgery recovery, that kind of thing) I often think about how lucky I am to be well.
I just finished reading Anwar Knight’s blog about his treatments for Lymphoma. Knight, the TV meteorologist, must only be in his 30’s. He’s spending his days undergoing radiation now after rounds of chemo. Mark Dailey, the big, low voice of City TV has had a recurrence of cancer and he’s back in the battle. It doesn’t discriminate. It doesn’t care what you’ve got going on in your life. It just shows up uninvited and takes over. And there are many, many more people who are having to go through so much just to get through the day, health-wise. My pal Suzanne has just recently wrapped up her treatments for breast cancer. She’s in her 30’s and I must say, she looked very cute as a bald chick! She also had one of the best attitudes I’ve ever heard of, while going through it all. The list of people goes on and on.
So let’s just celebrate our good health today, shall we?
