Simple Joys of Life #7

03_18_2013_cancer_funny_family_simple_joys_of_lifeI still can’t believe that it’s been almost four years since I was diagnosed with Stage III breast cancer. I’ve mentioned several times in this blog about how much going through cancer has changed me.

As one year after the diagnosis turned into two (I wasn’t dead like I thought I would be), I figured I would start to take everyday life for granted, but I really haven’t. I pinch myself all the time, thankful that I am still here.

I confess that I’ve always been a sentimental sap, but I find that I’m getting more so as time goes on. Here I am with two of my favorite cousins, Jan and Brian. I have fond memories of traveling down to California to visit them when I was a teenager. Over lunch today, we laughed and laughed for hours, reminiscing about the “good old days” like a bunch of old geezers.

Ah, life is good. Life would be even better if our visit had taken place on Seal Beach in California.
