"Today I return into hospital for a six-hour blood transfusion which will hopefully leave me feeling less washed out than I've felt during the past month.
While having cancer is not a condition to be desired by anyone with an ounce of sanity, it does provide the person experiencing it and their loved ones with the opportunity to display and use all of the wisdom and strength that they have built up during their lifetimes. Such wisdom is capable of making one a 'cancer patient' instead of a 'cancer sufferer.'
Anyone who has ever been close to death or who has had the opportunity to touch the rim of eternal salvation will know the tremendous relief which can be produced simply by 'having a good day' during hard times. Were I able to leave but one thing behind when the time comes to take up my place at the other side of the green sod, it would be to convey the certain knowledge to the whole of mankind that 'Days are what we make them. We make our own days either good or bad by simply believing them so.' Have a good day." William Forde: September 8th, 2014.
