Today We Celebrate Our Anniversary.....A True Blessing!

Today, my husband and I celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary! So much to be thankful for! We have been blessed with two very precious and caring daughters, and we are all so grateful for my husband's courage and strength that defies all description.
He is "living" proof for other cancer patients that you can never give up. Receiving two diagnosis of "there is nothing else we can do for you" from your doctor, would certainly put most of us into deep depression, and just give up any hope of survival. Not so with him, as he continues to pass on his credo of keeping the faith He's created the script and played the lead role in his own true to life drama of "Defying the Odds".
For those who know him personally, he has become a true hero! He has shown all of us another meaning for the word "courage" that none of us could have ever imagined. He has taught all of us to ignore those things that we once thought to be high priority in our lives, and to focus on just what is truly important.
We have realized just what is important in life, and tonight we will spend time with family and friends. No gifts by request, for the greatest gift is their friendship which we have come to realize is the most important.
Yes, we have been truly blessed!

Congrats to both of you. I enjoy reading this blog on a daily basis.
It provides very good information for cancer patients like myself who have no idea where to look for help.
Have a wonderful day.

Happy anniversary! My husband (who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer a couple of months ago) and I celebrated our 32nd anniversary back in May. He has also been amazing throughout this whole process.
I wish you two many more years together!
