This is your light - I'm waking again in your HONOR
This is what was written in an email sent to me by my cousin Teddy. Teddy has been walking/running in my honor in The American Cancer Society's 'Relay for Life' ever since my lung cancer diagnosis. He participates in Puerto Rico where they call it 'Relevo Por La Vida.'
He had always communicated when he would be walking but this year he did something different. He sent me a picture of my light!
This left quite an impression on me. I got goosebumps when I opened the email.
Words cannot express the tremendous honor I felt and still feel to this day by this picture. This is only a 'candle in a bag' to some. This candle just shined for a short while on this earth - just as I will in this lifetime. This candle symbolizes
the light that I still get to shine on this earth because I AM A SURVIVOR.
These are the rewards in life that are immeasureable!
