Appreciate the Little Things

Today was glorious....lots of sunshine and hot temperatures. Hubby and I spent it outside, watching the bluejays in our three feeders. I know that might sound boring to many of you, but seems it's the little things now that we appreciate so much more than we did previous to my husband's cancer diagnosis.
We now live day to day, thankful for the time that we have together and always knowing that things can change in an instant. Of course, that's the way life is for anyone, but once you've had a near death experience and have fought courageously to live, your whole perception of life becomes rearranged. We are very grateful that my husband now goes to work everyday, is feeling relatively good and life for now, is back to "normal". I say that word cautiously, for even though he is on continuous chemo on a daily basis, we have been truly blessed.
These past two years have presented us with many struggles, and blessings that have been too numerous to count. I hope that by sharing our experiences with cancer, we can inspire others to keep the faith!
Looking forward to your comments.

Your website is very encouraging to people going through any difficult situaton. Our prayers are with you. Keep up your good work. God Bless!
