The Small Things Are the BIG Things -
Ever read the book, Don't Sweat The Small Stuff? Getting cancer changed the way I look at EVERYTHING! I used to have a minor case of "road rage" - not even one iota of some of the other people I've seen, but I had moments of screaming obscenities into the air, sticking up certain fingers out of frustration, etc. Now? I drive like an old lady. I enjoy the scenery. I've replaced, &%#@! with "Bless your lil' heart!" (Said with a Southern drawl, Ya'll!) When I'm stuck at a red light, I admire the birds who are peacefully sitting on the telephone wires and I roll down the window to listen to their songs. I'm not saying that I don't backslide occasionally, however, I try harder to maintain peace. My favorite F word isn't used as often, and I have learned to pick my battles. When faced with a "life challenge," you learn that the small things ARE the big things. Suddenly life is much sweeter!
