Kasey Posted December 22, 2010 Share Posted December 22, 2010 Each year I love to bring back this post from such a very special member who used to grace our boards. If you did not know DeanCarl, you missed one remarkable man. Each year it brings me comfort to read, once again, his inspirational words to all of us. When I was a kid I used to give my folks a Christmas wish list each year. We weren’t rich by any means, but some how some way a lot of what I wished for I got. So, in that spirit, here’s my “wish list” for this Christmas: My Christmas Wish List. For the newly diagnosed and those who have recently had a recurrence: May your fears be calmed, your strength renewed and your hopes be realized. For those in the midst of the battle: May your determination never falter and your days be filled with victory. For those who have lost loved ones: May your memories bring joy rather than pain and your days be filled with the spirit of those who have touched your lives. For those in remission: May your joy fill the lives of those around you and be a light for those that follow. For those who are nearing the end of the fight: May you find the courage to walk the path you are on and to see the glory in each new day. And for everyone who has so touched my life since I found this place: Whatever your situation, where ever you are may this Christmas season bring you all that your heart desires.
