another year has come and gone. i find that the older i get, the faster time moves. i am so grateful and feel so blessed to have been granted another year of life. i do not take it lightly. this week, while shadowing a physician, i had to watch him tell a patient that her chemotherapy was not working and was causing more harm to her than good. she was a very frail looking woman who was clearly exhausted. in essence, he was telling her not to fight any longer, but to spend her remaining time living and loving.

i know that none of us know how much time we have left, i simply pray that i am able to do all that i was put on this planet to do before my time is done. i pray that i am able to touch people all over the world, make people smile, think, dance, sing and heal. i pray that i am able to use all of the gifts that God has given me to make a difference in this world. in essence, i am grateful that i have been given another year of life to try and make this happen :)
