    Smile refections

    Well 2009 is coming to a close. Looking back its been a hard year, but I have to say in many ways it was good year.
    At the end of September I finished my last cancer treatment. Last Friday I had another surgery and the result were benign. I still alive, I lean thing I never would have learn if it were for my cancer and having to go through 164 treatments in a year. I have made friends that I would never have made.
    Life whether it be another 40 to 50 years or another 2 to 5 years is a day by day gift. Ill admit there are some days youre sure it a gage gift or a cure joke of a gift. But it is still a gift.
    Im going to most likely see my 46th birthday in January and spend other day with my wife and son. There is something to be grateful for.
    I am luckier than many. What I learn this year (year and a half) is to use cancer to make your life better because it might be as long as you hope for.
    Looking Back It has been A Wonderful Life. Sometimes it takes the thought of losing it to make us see that.


    Thanks to many member and Friend for H-talk for helping me make it through this year.

    Bret, sometimes we have to face a threat of losing the things we love in order to truly appreciate them.

    This trial has given you a perspective that few may have. This has made you a better man, and everyone you know will benefit from this experience.

    Bless you, and continue to pay it forward. This really IS "A Wonderful Life."

    I have met few real men. But what I know of them, and I try like hell to emulate, is the fact that in order to be a real man, one must be brave and face the unknown with uncommon valor.

    I don't know you. I wish I could get to. But from what I have witnessed of you and about you, that you are certainly in my estimation and everyone that I know here a true measure of a Man. God bless you and god be with you.
