Cancer is a very sad thing,
but you can always take
something from every experience.

Happy Birthday Pierce. I agree, Cancer sucks. I’m so tired of family and friends dying from this dam disease and/or its treatments.

So instead I choose to celebrate the International Day of Light. Turn on every light. Sit in the sunshine. Raise a glass in a toast of cheer. Light lets us read in the dark months and work instead of sleeping. It keeps us safe while keeping the darkness away.

Today is also the International Day of Living Together in Peace. The news is filled with the bombings in Palestine. My heart breaks to see the streaks of smoke rising from tall apartment buildings where people lived without being politically involved. Stop racial discrimination. Stop fighting. Stop Wars. Just all live together in Peace.

Instead go buy your stepmother a flower or gift as you remember Stepmother’s Day, celebrated on the Sunday after Mother’s Day. Wicked or not she has helped shape your destiny and who you’ve become.
