It has been 3 years.
3 years since my husband of almost 12 years walked in the door and cried as he told me had stage 3 melanoma.
My heart sunk as I tried to absorb the shock.
You can read more about our experience here and here.
As we approach the 3 year anniversary of his diagnosis, I am reminded of a few things.
1. Live each day like it is your last.
2. Make decisions that add to the lives of others.
3. Determine what is big. Determine what is little. Most of it is little.
4. Always being right isn't as important as being humble and forgiving.
5. Don't beat yourself up over everything; especially for eating that last bite of ice cream cake.
6. Remember that someone, somewhere is going through something much worse than you.
7. Say, "I love you" like it's nobody's business.
8. Get your skin checked once a year.
9. Stay out of the sun from peak hours: 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
10. Wear your sunscreen daily. No suntan or burn is worth melanoma.
P.S. Please come on over on Sunday and link up to "It's a God thing".
