I know my blog is generally about scrapbooking and other lighthearted fare but today I just need to write about something a little tougher.
I hate Cancer. Well obviously right? Breast cancer stole my mom from me at 54 years old. It is an evil, insidious disease that can destroy you before you even know it's there. Every day it seems I hear of someone else it's affected and it makes me feel very powerless. There are loads of sites dedicated to all the things you can do to prevent it but the bottom line is YOU CAN'T. Does a 3 year old have a chance to eat enough anti-oxidants to keep leukemia at bay? Don't think so.
I am just overwrought today. I can't believe this awful disease will affect 1 in 4 people. 1 in 4!!! Not great odds.
Hug your kids, love your life and don't sweat the small stuff.
Easier said than done I know but you can bet someone with cancer is fighting for the chance to love their life.
Sorry for the downer. I am just furious today and had to let it out.
