on perspective

I have a new post up at MyBreastCancerNetwork.Com:

A shift in my priorities occurred when I found out that my cancer had metastasized. And those priorities have not really shifted back now that my prognosis is more hopeful.

It's not so much a matter of living every day as if it could be my last (I don't actually think that would feel healthy or peaceful). It's more that I try and savour each new day like an ice cream sundae, appreciating each new flavour, right down to the last little bits in the bottom of the glass (I always did have a sweet tooth).

Lately, I have been forgetting to live this way. It's time to slow down again, enjoy my life and take pleasure in the things that give me joy.

You can read the rest of this post here.

Two years ago, if you had asked me if I loved my children and my life, I would have said 100% yes. After my daughter was diagnosed with cancer, I know that I did, indeed, love them, but never with the depth and intensity I do now.

I treasure every minute, I savor the seconds with them, I hoard each happy laugh and smile and cry for a day when I need to pull it out and just remember.

I know what you mean.
