As Birthdays Go...

As birthday go...last night was one for the books.

This year, everything just seems that much sweeter. I did have a birthday party last year and though it was fun, this yer is just even that much more wonderful, memorable and sweet. This year, I have been battling Cancer. Though I hate that phrase, it is the truth. Everyday is a battle, though I wear it with a smile. I conquer this battle with positivity, encouragement and inspiration. To celebrate my life this year, was my birthday gift to myself. I'm here. I have survived. Cancer did not kill me. chemotherapy did not kill me. Hemorrhoids  did not kill me. Though out of all of them, that one has been th worst, I am still here and I am still going strong.

As birthdays go....this one will always be remembered.

This is the birthday I fought Cancer.

Now I would say, this is the year I fought Cancer and won. But until my net PETSCAN I "technically" can't say that. Though I was NED (No Evidence of Disease) at my last scan and I have no genetic predispositions to cancer from my family. Which is also good because that means the likelihood of it coming back it slim to none. Which, in turn, is good news for me all the way around.

I always love my birthdays. But this birthday is sweeter, grander, lovelier, wonderful, stupendous, marvelous and the most fabulous birthday I feel I have had in my adult life because  I AM STILL HERE. I AM STILL LIVING. I STILL HAVE BREATH. I STILL HAVE LIFE.

And that , folks, whether you celebrate birthdays or not, is definitely a reason to celebrate life!

I am so thankful to be alive!
