Living Room Table Monday, November 12th 2018.
I do many things differently now a days, I appreciate and value my life very much and I understand that I was given a gift that I cannot explain when I stepped off the path of victim and started down the path of a survivor. I am reminded daily by the work my wife and I do with our non profit organization for lung cancer research. I am slowly accomplishing the things I want out of my remaining time and although I always thought it was all about me, I’m finding out that what truly is making my life complete is the work we do for others. If I can now help fill the potholes and remove the stones from someone else’s path it helps to justify my continued existence while others as my Father had, lose their battle with cancer. Sometimes it’s hard to make sense of, other times it’s all crystal clear, I’m basically the same as every other person on the face of the planet, trying to stumble their way through life.
