Whilst enjoying the meal, with Cancer stories members. It was non stop talking, there was not a gap. Only when I was walking back from the toilet did it hit me, as I walked back I saw everyone chatting, laughing, smiling and just enjoying each other’s company. I can’t tell you how special it was just seeing that, that all those people not only had been touched by cancer but were willing to help others who were facing a journey of hell. I realised how special these people were, that they were the reason someone had hope. I realised that they had played a part in someone’s life to help them to carry on and not to give up. Or indeed themselves had been the one that chose NOT to give up.
Wow what an amazing group of people, and indeed a privilege to even be associated to them, but then it got me thinking. These people that were in front of me, had helped me. They had helped me to carry on, to find the courage some how to continue. That these people before me were so very special if they knew it or not, they are and were very special to me. I don’t want today to end, because the new friends I have made have made me realise something. They have helped me do have life for the future I now have before me.
That it is indeed “because of you” that I live today. You prayed, you encouraged, you talked to me into the small hours of the night, you told me I could do it, you helped me to believe I could when I thought there was no way. You cried with me, you hugged me, you got angry I had to face it with me. It was you that helped me, you that helped me to live. Your encouragement, your words, your love. If your a believer, friend or family member, you were used to help me to live. It is my hope that many people will be helped because of you being a part of Cancer stories. I want to thank you all, life’s short and a special gift. Treasure what you have, not what you had. What you have is far more precious than what you had.
Thank you for being in my today.
