today i am six.
it's amazing what a new life, a farm, a bunch of livestock including 10 baby chickens will do for your health and wellbeing. today i celebrated my 6 year cancerversary! 6 years ago today, i heard the words that no one wants to hear, "you have cancer." and now, here i am living the life of my dreams. building a small farm, playing music, taking photographs, and being happily married to a truly incredible man. the crazy part about it all is that i totally forgot today was my cancerversary. i was just celebrating life because that's what i do. i spent the day working on the house, the barn, feeding my animals, and playing in the snow. this evening, my husband and i sat down to a romantic indian dinner just because. just because that's what i get to do. i choose to do. and i am privileged to do.
it wasn't until i sat down just now and read my email from my sisters that i realized the true meaning of today. i want to thank them for the reminder.
