Being Thankful

Friday, November 03, 2017

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.

    And that is wonderful about being cancer free for 25 years and getting back to that weight.

    Walking outside is a great way to not only get our exercise but enjoy nature.
