Welcome to 2011, part 2
Thanks to all of you who have stopped by Life-Cise and this blog, and a big thank you to all of you who continue coming back. It is gratifying that what I am so passionate about has meaning for you, too.
I am especially thankful for the friendships I have developed through writing this blog. That's an added benefit that had never occurred to me when I started; when I started I wasn't even sure anyone would care what I had to say. But through this blog and also through the writing that many of you do, I've gotten to know some of you. And I've come to count you as friends.
It does seem odd to me sometimes to feel connected with people I've never met. But through our writing, connection and friendship with some lovely women and men all over the world is what I've found, and for that I am thankful.
We write about what matters to us, what amuses us, what we are passionate about. Often we write about cancer, but we also write of other things. Those of us in the cancer community sometimes write from very different perspectives. We are newbies, long-time survivors, angry, hopeful, scared, disease-free, or struggling with mets. All of us have a vital and important voice because as survivors, we do not have just one voice.
So, thank you all for your voice, your questions, your friendship - you add to my life.
