tomorrow is my 4 year cancerversary

I saw someone on Thursday that I haven't seen in a long while. She genuinely asked me how I was doing... Tomorrow, on April 3rd it will be four years since I found out I had cancer, the anniversary of my 1st cancer surgery, four years of living with Sarcoma. Thank you Lord for these four years. I feel lucky and blessed to be here and to be healthy. Four months ago on December 2nd, I had my 3rd surgery to rid my body of cancer. Since then I've been able to recover quickly and pretty much forget about it. I feel good. But an anniversary date always makes you reflect and remember. Last night I clicked on my sidebar, on the word Cancer, and read all the posts I've written about it. My blog is generally a feel good place for me, where I write about my crafts and sewing projects, home improvements, what I've been up to, golf outings, fun with friends, posts about my family, especially my grandson, so there really aren't that many about my cancer. I don't like to live with those thoughts, worrying about cancer. I like to forget about it and live my blessed life. I feel good so therefore I should be cancer free, right? I sure hope so! I don't feel any cancer inside of me, so maybe, just maybe it's not there anymore, please. April brings all the memories back. At the end of the month I'll have a scan to see what's going on in there. Every year since my original diagnosis we've had to "watch" something. I'm hoping and praying that this time there's nothing to watch, that my lungs are totally clean and cancer free, not even a teeny tiny little speck of a spot to watch. 
And I can continue to live every day of my blessed life with all the joys that surround me.
