One of my new friends survived cancer last year, the same time I did. She just sent me this super cool email. It is one of those messages that pushes me toward gratitude, joy, hope, and RISK as I face today:
Hi Rob!!I am so excited to see what God is going to do with you this year!! Like I said, I seethis as a “gravy year”! I might not even have BEEN here this year if the docs hadn’t found my cancer. Therefore, whatever happens this year is “gravy” .Actually, every year hereafter will be gravy.. I’ve had some great interactions with friends and family, so far this year. Even rode a zipline, a big step for a chicken like me.. I figured “Why not?” Take a risk now and then.Looking forward to seeing how God uses you this year.
For all you survivors out their, whatever it was that you survived, today is a day of hope, risk, and joy. Today is “gravy.”
Revel in each moment as the gift it is.
