A Holiday of Hope

This day, Good Friday, marks the beginning of a series of historical events planned to bring us hope.

To bring us life.

With the darkness of death came the light of salvation.

May you all find the peace and hope this holiday brings...

Happy Easter!

Restless Soul

This is me right now.

A restless soul.

And I don't know why.

Life is really good.

I'm easing into a new norm.

Steadily busy.

No major ups or downs.

So why the unrest?

When I dig deep I find the answer.

I need to write.

All that I've experienced these past 8 months is struggling to find it's way out.

Consider this fair warning of what's to come.

No rhyme or reason to my posts.

No consistent thought pattern to follow.

Simply me...

recording my life...

my life as a cancer patient.

Until then...

"Story of My Life"

Stopping by to share my favorite song of late...recently rediscovered my love for Bon Jovi. I didn't even know I had so many Bon Jovi songs on the ol' Ipod. Call me crazy, but I'm totally unaware of what songs are actually on my Ipod. More often than not, when relying on the genius of Apple technology for my listening pleasure, I catch myself saying

"Wow! Didn't know I had THAT song. Too cool!"

I then proceed to hit the replay button time and time again.

That's the beauty of being technologically rely on others to load your Ipod for you and then receive the benefit of all the musical surprises!

This song happens to be the current one on repeat status. The words are so fitting for how I feel in this given moment. I've included the lyrics beneath the video...hope you enjoy!!!

"Story Of My Life"

Yesterdays a memory
Another page in history
You sell yourself on hopes and dreams
That leaves you feeling sideways.
Tripping over my own feet
Trying to walk to my own beat
Another car out on the street trying to find the Highway
Yeah, Are you going my way?

This is the story of my life
And I write it everyday
I know it isn't black and white
And it's anything but grey
I know that no I'm not alright, but I feel ok cos
Anything can, everything can happen
That's the story of my life

I'm gonna write the melody
That's gonna make history,
And when I paint my masterpiece I swear I'll show you first
There just ain't a way to see who and why or what will be
Till now is then
It's a mystery, it's a blessing and a curse
Or something worse


This is the story of my life
And I write it everyday,
And I hope you're by my side when I'm writing the last page

[Chorus x2]
