I have been very fortunate to have made two new amazing friends. They are both cancer survivors and have given me a new perspective in my life. Since Ben's death I have struggled with remaining positive in my life. Considering all my family has been through I think I have done alright, but I am definitely not the glass half full optimist of my past. I learned all two well that I am not in control of much. I struggle with my belief system as to who/what is in control, but clearly I am not. These two friends have a lease on life that is incredible. Though their cancers and their stories are vastly different, the appreciation for each day is the same. I count myself lucky to know them, to have them in my life, and for them to call me friend.
