Battles in life make you stronger!

I have been diagnosed with Cancer of the T-cells and skin and have been going through treatment for this three times a week to Toronto. The Cancer I have is called Mycosis Fungoides. I am doing good and treatments are successful. I am not working due to my diagnosis and treatments.
  Due to not working and having more time on my hands I have lots of time to reflect on my life and think.  I am learning which people(friends) I can count and are there for me.
 I know I can count on my family and some of my friends. I am also making some new friends along the way.

 One of my friend was an inspiration to me and told me to keep everyone in my life that is positive, surround myself with positive and keep the negative out of my life.  Life is like a garden and you need to weed it out so that your life can grow and flourish. I am working on that and am feeling good about it!
 My faith in God has also helped through this journey.  Many new people are entering my life and are inspiring me.  I have had many positive people with kind words of encouragement, prayers and support and I appreciate it!

This hardship in my life is making me a stronger and wiser person. I should be done treatment by the end of October and will return to work.

One of my favourite quotes is that  "If God brings you to it he will bring you through it" and I believe it!

Thanks for listening to me.
Remember to encourage one another.
