Happy Birthday

Hello Everyone

Today is the 2nd anniversary of my bone marrow transplant! What a glorious feeling! I feel like a 2 year old! I have a second chance at life! What a beautiful day it is..the sun is shining, the birds are happily chirping outside my window, the flowers are beautiful, the smell of summer fills our home, and God is smiling on me. Two years ago on this day I embarked on a precarious journey I knew nothing about with great trepidation (although I didn't let anyone know). Now, 2 years later I feel like I Made It, I really AM going to live! I AM going to live to celebrate my 50th wedding anniversary, I AM going to see my grandchildren graduate and become fine adults, I AM going to be able to savor all the moments I so looked forward to in my life. I Am here. It is a miracle and I will be eternally grateful for this second chance at "The Dance"

    Hey Cin, I am so proud of you. I went back and read your post from two years ago. Wow, that was incredibly emotional. You are a blessing, an inspiration and a gift to all of us. You have found your purpose and we applaud you. Continue to inspire and we will continue to be thankful that you have touched our lives in such a profound way.
