As the holidays approach this year, I find they are bittersweet. My wife, Myrene is with the radiation oncologist getting ready to try and knock out the painful cancer in her sternum. Hopefully, she’ll be off painkillers by Christmas. Her positive attitude has never failed, even when the pain is at its worst. Christmas is her favorite holiday, and we’re lucky to be having the kids here for Thanksgiving and all but one for Christmas. I take this holiday season to remind you to be grateful for the simple things we sometimes take for granted.
