Nothing Is Ever Completely Bad

“I guess that one of the most important things I’ve learned is that nothing is ever completely bad.  Even cancer.  It has made me a better person.  It has given me courage and a sense of purpose I never had before.  But you don’t have to do like I did … wait until you lose a leg or get some awful disease, before you take the time to find out what kind of stuff you’re really made of.  You can start now.  Anybody can.”

Terry Fox, 1958 – 1981 Canadian man with an artificial right leg who ran across Canada to raise money for cancer research.

This quote always makes me think.  Some challenges are really tough, but if we look hard enough we can always find some good.  From the challenge of Lewy body Alzheimer’s my husband and I face,  I have discovered “what kind of stuff” I am made of.  Is the glass half full or is it half empty? I think it is REFILLABLE!
