The message is to choose life in this moment, not to try and live forever. Someday, when you're tired and sore and want to leave your body, your death will be a healing--not a failure. You will have been an example of how to deal with adversity and leave a legacy of love.
Bernie S. Siegel

Anyone who doesn't believe in miracles is not a realist.
David Ben-Gurion

But in the mud and scum of things
``There alway, alway something sings.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

" There is something beautiful about all scars of whatever nature. A scar means the hurt is over, the wound is closed and healed, done with."
Harry Crews

The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitude.
William James

I have learned from experience that
the greater part of our happiness or misery
depends on our dispositions
and not on our circumstances.
Martha Washington

I don't want anyone to believe that I am a Pollyanna, always chirping about goodness and light. But neither do I want to be a victim, of other people or of circumstance. I rarely manage to be as positive as I wish that I could be. I do aspire to overcome ill health, bad moods, and anger. I am often far from successful. But quotes like these have always inspired me and given me the urge to try to create life the way I would like for it to be. To respond versus react. To deal with whatever comes into my life the best that I can.
Y'all keep the quotes coming.

Leslie

THE BEST REMEDY FOR THOSE WHO ARE AFRAID, LONELY OR UNHAPPY IS TO GO OUTSIDE, SOMEWHERE WHERE THEY CAN BE QUIET, ALONE WITH THE HEAVENS, NATURE AND GOD. BECAUSE ONLY THEN DOES ONE FEEL THAT ALL IS AS IT SHOULD BE.

Beautiful!

Wow - I just found this thread - how lovely! Thanks for sharing sisters. My contribution for today:

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen." Elizabeth Kubler Ross

Blessings all

We have three choices in life: to do good, to get better or to give up...

The power of choice is yours.

my new fave

from, yes, hot soccer boy David Beckham via Kris Carr's Crazy, Sexy Cancer Tips:

"Impossible is a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is an opinion not a fact. Impossible isn't a declaration it's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing."

'95 post-meno dx Invasive LOBULAR w/9cm tumor! YIKES + 2/21 nodes. Clear mammo 10 mnths earlier. Mastec/tram flap reconst/PORT/8 mnths chemo (4Adria/8CMF). Borderline ER/PR. Tamoxifen 2 yrs. Felt BLESSED. I could walk and talk, feed and bathe myself! I KNEW I would survive...

'98 -- multiple mets to liver. HER2+ 80%. ER/PR- Raging, highly aggressive tumors spreading fast. New PORT. 9 mnths Taxotere Fought fire w/fire! Pronounced in cautious remission 5/99. Taxotere weekly for 6 wks, 2 wks off -- for 9 mnths. TALK ABOUT GRUELING! (I believe they've altered that protocol since those days -- sure hope so!!)
+ good old Vit H wkly for 1st 3 yrs, then triple dosage ev 3 wks for 7 yrs more... The "easy" chemo, right?! Not a walk in the park, but not a freight train coming at 'ya either...

Added Herceptin Nov '98 (6 wks after FDA fast-tracked it for met bc). Stayed w/Vit H till July '08! Now I AM FREE! Humbly and eternally grateful for this life-saving drug! NED since '99 and planning on keeping it that way. To hell w/poor prognosis and nasty stats! STOPPED VIT H JULY '08...! REMAIN STABLE... Eternally grateful...Yes is a world & in this world of yes live (skillfully curled) all worlds ... (e e cummings) EVERY DAY I BEAT MY PREVIOUS RECORD FOR # OF CONSECUTIVE DAYS I'VE STAYED ALIVE. Smile KNOWING you too can be a miracle. Up to me and God now...
