I watched Elizabeth Edwards on Larry King Live recently, and when Larry asked Elizabeth what advise she would give to other terminally ill victims of cancer, she replied simply: Live each day to the fullest.
Good advise--I get it completely. It's been two years since my cancer diagnosis. Elizabeth Edward's tumor in her breast was the size of half dollar. My tumor was the size of a baseball. Her cancer came back. So far I'm fine, but I'm keenly aware that could change any time.
So I made a list of the things I want to do before I die. Here it is:
See Sting in Concert--Check! Did it!
Go on a Mediterranean Cruise--Leaving this Friday
See Madonna in Concert
See the Pyramids in Egypt
Write a Book
I hope to check off the rest of these things within two years. And after that, I have an even more grandiose list. But for right now, I'll just try to check off this list.
When you realize time is a precious commodity, the saying, "seize the day"--which sounds better in Latin--Carpe Diem--takes on a whole new meaning.
