A Surprise...


It's no special occasion, just laying in the recliner with my husband, listening to the rain...ping-ping-ping... coming off the roof.  It was so beautiful, you could see things turning green, getting ready for spring.

My husband looked at me and handed me a box... inside was a simple band, that went around my wrist... and was engraved with the following:

"What Cancer can not do...It cannot invade the soul, supress memories, kill friendship, destroy peace, conquer the spirit, shatter hope, cripple love, corrode faith, steal eternal life, silence courage."

Need I say more?
