I have often said that I am not grateful for having had cancer. I still stand by that. I tend to be grateful for things that aren't trying to kill me. Chocolate, iced tea, my family, my friends, the ocean, the list goes on and on. You will never, however, find cancer on that list. That being said, I like who I am today. I like the person I have become and the person I am becoming. Some of the changes and growth that I have experienced come from having fought for my life. I'd like to believe that most of the growth would have occurred anyway...just perhaps on a slower scale.
So, Happy Crapiversary to me! Here's to many more Crapiversaries....kind of like a birthday, but not.
