    No, I never served in the Armed Forces, in fact my 3 siblings were all served in the Army.  but I am so proud of my son for the choices he has made.  I know it was very hard for him to make those choices and then to live up to the choices he made.

    Me being brave? laughs No longer,  I think maybe clueless might be a more apt term to use when identifying characteristics I might have.  My days of bravery are in the distant past now for me, however, have those previous life experiences have tempered my mettle as have everyone's life experiences tempered their mettle too.  

    Funny thing about cancer is, we discover things about ourselves we never knew about ourselves.  Sometimes it makes us uncomfortable, sometimes it strengthens our resolve and sometimes we find a sense of well-being and  of grace we never knew existed.  

    These days, I try to live each day such that the Satan himself trembles in fear each morning when I awaken.

    Life is not a problem to be solved but an adventure to be experienced.

      But yes, I think that cancer (or any crisis, really) just makes us more so.

      Some DKos series & groups worth your while: Black Kos, Native American Netroots, KosAbility, Monday Night Cancer Club. If you'd like to join the Motor City Kossacks, send me a Kosmail.
