A number of years ago, in a Beth Moore Bible study, she made a comment about NOT SMELLING OF SMOKE: it was a reference to the fellows tossed in the fiery furnace in the book of Daniel and coming out unharmed and free of smoke. I have tried to make sure that my cancer from 25 years ago was not a lingering "smoke" smell about my person. BUT, yesterday and today seems to really be in my face, I guess because of the mile marker of 25 years. I had joked back then that I had an alien in my chest like Ripley, but I SURVIVED when it was yanked out of my chest, and for this, I need to be ever in mind to be THANKFUL. I am now at the weight I was 25 years ago and I think in some ways much healthier (fitter) than I was then, before the diagnosis. Although I do feel my age, lol. I decided to walk 3 miles in my neighborhood today. I have been bored on the treadmill at the gym and I don't seem to follow through with my intentions of an hour or 3 miles. This way, at home, if I walk out 1.5 miles, I HAVE to walk back the 1.5 miles. Oh the things I have to do to trick myself to exercise. bwahaha. Peace and hugs fellow Sparkies.
