My sister has posted a wonderful entry on her blog about my birthday lunch today!
She is right about my response. I was depressed about turning 35 in 2006 and 6 weeks later I was told I had cancer. I will never be depressed about becoming older, only depressed if the party isn't big enough! :-) I am now celebrating being here another year for my kids, my spouse, myself, my friends, and all the other I hope to impact in the years to come!
