Thoughts For The Holiday

As I browsed CNN.com I ran across an interactive slide show, showing all of the famous people that passed in 2008. It was amazing to me to see how many people passed due to some sort of cancer. Maybe I'm just hyper-vigilant having a brother currently battling cancer but it made me think, as usual!

I'm thankful for my brother's will. His will to not let cancer get in his way, his will to stand up and take the hit of chemo every two weeks, his will to continue. I think there was a reason that my brother has been given this burden. Possibly to show us what the human spirit is capable of. Maybe to show us that we are a stronger family than we think. Maybe to show cancer that it doesn't always get to destroy peoples' lives. There's only one person that knows the reason for sure, the rest of us can spend our life guessing. Either way, I said it before and I'll say it again, Kevin in my hero.

Happy Holidays everyone, make sure you go the extra mile this season to tell everyone how much they mean to you!!! :)

P.S. Happy Eating as well! ;)

Happy Holidays to you Mike! I'm taking your advice by "trying" to get that extra mile in but it's been very hard this month with all the bad weather (snow). Hopefully spring will arrive quickly. And I am doing exceptionally well in the "happy eating" department this season! ;)

You're such a positive person!
