My doppelgänger cells!
The rogue bunch yeah you!
We will find out next week what you are up to but today I win.
Today I win as I celebrate one more rotation of the earth and that time that I had in between the time when it was last here.
I win for a year well lived.
I win for all the things I did.
I win for every day I looked at fear and said ” fuck you”
I win when I hugged the newly diagnosed woman as she wept in my arms and told her she will be okay.
I win because I went to bed in the arms of my loving husband.
I win because my friendships are stronger than ever before.
I win because I am loved.
I win because I made to school every times parents were supposed to go.
I win because despite the hurt, my heart has love beyond any mutation you can possibly create.
I win because I reach out to all.
I win because I make mistakes and I learn from them.
I win because I fall and get up!
I win because I do cry but then I wipe my tears and then get up and live some more.
Here I am with me and my will and I look and you and all I know is today I win!
The scans, the meds, the side effects, the fears, the grief, the loss and the disability are all part of my life but they are NOT my life.
I am my life, the whole canvas with the beautiful and the ugly.
I am today !
I am today!
