Life consists not in holding good cards but in playing those you hold Well!!!

An inspiring quote, appreciated by all, but followed by few. I never really appreciated Life, until a year ago. I got sick, very sick and there was a lot I couldn't do.

I only realized the value of what I had, when I had lost it. There was a lot of life lessons I learned during those 7 months.

My time was consumed by complaining about yesterday and yearning for a better tomorrow, what I failed to realize that I was ignoring the present, I was so busy with work, I never had time to notice things around me. 

I've made a conscious effort not to dwell on the past, but to value each day that I have and make the most of it.

Life Summed Up for a Cancer Survivor: Fingers Perpetually Crossed, So live life to the fullest, because living in fear or despair is not worth it. Have Faith!!! 

I believe that "Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe" But it does not mean you just need to have faith and everything else will follow, you need to take that 1st step and try.

I've not been totally reformed, but I'm taking baby steps in the right direction. People who have known me think I've changed (Hopefully for the better) I'd like to think I've improved... only time will tell. 


  1. James, I admire all your strength, Cancer is a scary road to travel. I pray that you always stay in remission. Walking a road that can lead to death will change who we are, inside and out. I know you had ministering angels by your side. May you have a blessed life James, keep asking God where he wants to lead you, He will show you the way. You will get that warm good feeling, you know it. : ) I'll be praying for you. Your Friend Sheri
