It’s been awhile since I last wrote, mostly because I haven’t had the need to write. My past with cancer doesn’t come up very often anymore and mostly I know how to handle it when it does. I don’t imagine it will ever go away and there are still some days where I find there are challenges. We are often reminded how important life is and how we should really value the time we have. I appreciate the life I have and I love every minute I get to spend with my daughter. I am often reminded how fortunate I am that I was diagnosed as stage one. Many people are not that fortunate in life and so my daughter is often referred to as a “miracle” or a “blessing.” I mean she really did save my life! I am so grateful everyday for that.
So I’ve been up to a lot lately, I spend six weeks coaching middle school field hockey. Nothing like coaching roughly 25 girls everyday. It was great to be outside and do something fun after I got out of work. Thankfully it didn’t take too much time away from spending it with my daughter. I am back to playing ice hockey in a men’s league one day a week after taking the Summer off. We’ve stayed super busy with spending time with family and friends.
Last night I made the finishing touches to my daughters Halloween costume. I love this time of the year. Its all about family and friends and all that we have to be thankful for.
