I Believe in the Power of "You" and "I"

I've been battling a terrible flu/cold recently and have not been up to writing my usual posts.  Today though I think the worse has passed and now that I look back, my sick days have been a good opportunity for me to reflect on a few topics that I want to write about over the next few days.  I want to express a sincere "Thank You" to all of my regular viewers for taking the time to continue to check into the blog, despite not seeing new posts.  I've got to say, that you are a very loyal group of viewers and I really appreciate this.

The song that I have added today "I BELIEVE" sung by Nikki Yanofsky has been chosen as CTV's theme song for Vancouver's 2010 Olympics.  The music is inspiring....... but it's lyrics are even more inspirational.  I'm going to add the lyrics below and although they do reflect upon those Olympic athelets who train endlessly to attain their goals, the more I read those lyrics, I thought about cancer patients who face their own adversities and who need to hear the words in this song of

"now nothing can stop me"

A continuing theme throughout this song as well, are the words

I Believe in the Power of You and I

I remember when I first began this blog back in late August of 2008.  A friend advised that once I started the blog, it would have to be a total commitment on my part and not something that I could suddenly stop doing as others would be counting on me.  As I've written many times before, my sole purpose for establishing it, was to locate other cancer patients and caregivers  in order to obtain information and support and to have a resource available where other cancer patients and caregivers could interact and create that special community of support during difficult times.  Well, it turned out my friend was right, as many others depend on reading my posts to help them find information, but more than that, YOU and I are making such a difference for cancer patients like my husband and so many others.  None of us have power alone, but  working together  most definitely is rewarding for all of us!!!

There comes a moment when my heart must stand alone
On this lonely path Ive chosen
like a house thats not a home
sometimes when I feel Ive had enough
and I feel like giving up
you willed me to be all I can be
now nothing can stop me
I believe in the power that comes
From a world brought together as one
I believe together well find
I believe in the power of you and I

This is the moment we have dreamed of all our lives
Well be the change we wish from others
Well stand tall for what its right
And in my hearts therell be no doubt
The arms of the world will come reaching out
And embrace me to be all I can be
Now nothing can stop me
I believe in the power that comes
From a world brought together as one
I believe together well fly
I believe in the power of you and I

I believe the time is right now
Stand tall and make the world proud
I believe together well fly
I believe in the power..
I believe in the power that comes
From a world brought together as one
(Of you and I)
I believe together well fly
I believe in the power of you and I
(power)
I believe the time is right now
(Oh you and I)
Stand tall and make the world proud
I believe together well fly (Together well fly)
I believe in the power of you and I
(I believe in the power of you and I)
