My Second First Birthday – May 4, 2012

Life is good. Life is very good.

One year ago today, just after 7AM, I went into surgery at Walter Reed to remove cancer.

One year later I am back out on the fields coaching soccer, running a business, and spending time with family and friends.

Along the way I’ve met just one other survivor with this kind of cancer, and I’ve said goodbye to two.

Chances are very high that at some time within the next few years I will be revisited by ungood. Maybe. Maybe not. At the time of my diagnosis I asked God for just two more years — to clear things up with family and business. One year is now gone.

Life is good. Life is very good.

Today is my second first birthday. You learn to appreciate life more when you realize that, while your warranty has expired, you have also gotten a second chance.

All prayers end up in the same Inbox.
How they get there is not the miracle.
How they get answered is.

Finding Life’s Path

I have about every piece of Michael W. Smith music since the early 1980s.

In one of my darkest moments his music helped me realize that there is a path … there is always a path … we just have to want to take it.

Even though we feel that our own life is of little value we should still use that life to serve others. In taking that path we give value to our lives.
