Tonight was it! Panara's.... yummmmm
I was thrilled to introduce the 2 of them and tickled pink when we giggled like school girls as we shared our more humorous stories. And the conversation doesn't always have to be about cancer. We shared about our families, our learnings from our experiences and how it changed our outlook in life (ok, alot of it was "because of cancer") and just enjoyed each other's company.
Chemo brain was a huge part of our laughter as one of us would start a thought and then forget what we were going to say... and then the other 2 would have to try to remember key words of what was being said in order for the memory to jolt back into the moment. If you don't get it, don't worry about it! It truly is a memory loss that only a chemo cocktail can promote!
I thought it very interesting when M said she didn't think of herself as a survivor, but as a thriver.
No matter what your circumstance
Everyone should strive to thrive!
