Appreciating what you HAD…

Wow! Once again I learned to appreciated what god has given me. From my cancer to my new life. Just came back last night from beautiful Barbados, there where some rowers that just rowed the Atlantic Ocean from the Canary Islands all the way to Barbados from 51 days at seas, 3000 miles away.

There where small little boats, they where all alone in the middle of the Ocean, no one to cheer them on, no one to make them feel good when there where down. Once they cross the finish line with great pride and great attitude, hundreds of people finally cheering them on, with tears of joy. When the first man came out of his boat, he was missing a leg, the second was missing 2 legs, the third had also only one leg. I then started to cry, thinking that not only these man where “disabled” but they put their life in danger, they made that choice. It made me look back at my cancer and then said to myself that I had no choice, I had to fight for my life to survive, I was put in that situation, god had given me this challenge. But they went out there by “choice”, put their life in danger to raise money for the disabled and crossed that finish line with pride and great attitude.

I realized that day that the only disability that one can have in their life when facing survival, is the attitude that one can take on things that they are tested on.

Enjoy what ever is given to you,  have a good attitude in bad time and good time. Look at the positive into the negative and search for solution in problem.
