My 65-th Birthday.

April 6, 2012

Today is my birthday. I’m 65 years old. Happy birthday to me! And I’m celebrating 65 years of my immortality. Yeah! 65 years!

That’s: 780 months, 3380 weeks, 23660 days, 567840 hours, or many, many minutes.

Basicaly, if I think about this, i could have died any time, any day of my life, 23660 times in those 65 years, but I’m still alive and O.K.

This makes me very happy and proud of myself. And this is a reason for celebration.

I’m a survivor! I have survived 65 years of living and cancer.

I Google: How long does the average person lives? And I got the answer: About 80 – 100 years if nothing happens to them. Yeah. That’s very interesting. Because  as we all know, life is dangerous. …..Risk never sleeps….. From the minute we wake-up (if we wake-up), anything can happen to us.

I’m planning to live other 5 years. I’m sure, I can do it. How? – One day at a time. What I’m planning to do? Just simple stuff: working,reading, writing, keep eating healthy foods, enjoying every day and thanking GOD every day for all the blessings. 5 years, that’s 43800 hours. That’s lots of time. But I have to remember that those hours (or minutes!) can fly by very fast. So I’m going to try every day to do something good, meaningful. 1825 good deeds. It can be done.

And I’m not saying that I’m going to live 5 more years. What I’m saying, that I’m going to do some more planning when I’m 70 years old.

My life is like driving a limo in very bad weather: IF ANYBODY CAN DO IT, I CAN DO IT.

And if anybody ask me: How old are you? I’m going to tell them: I’m over 50. But how much over 50, is not anybodys business. Anyway, not everybody can understand, that I’m 65 years old, fighting cancer every day and I’m so cheerful.

    Hello my new friend! You’ve been nominated for the Sunshine Award! Happy belated birthday! :)

  6. Thanks for your recent visit. I was hoping to give you hope on this short comment. But, I realized that when you believe in God, you have more hope than anyone can give; revealing God gives hope; God is our hope – in Christ we have His unfailing love and faithfulness, always.

    • divinewright permalink

      Yeah! Some word there. One who has God has a lot! But I am sure your good gesture is appreciated.

    • I agree in my life God is the source of all hope.

  23. Hutch permalink

    Great posts here! Keep it up my friend…

  24. Happy belated birthday and you have a great attitude! I’m 51 and I hear so many complain about growing older, when in fact, our birthdays offer us a chance to celebrate another year of life. I have this outlook after losing 6 people in the last 10 years under the age of 60…life is no guarantee, so keep pluggin’ away. I also wanted to thank you for following me. I hope you continue to enjoy your visits and I will follow you, too. I wish you all the best in your journey!

  25. Happy Birthday!

  26. Belated Happy Birthday, I celebrate your Heart and Spirit and the Love that you bring to Life! Thank you very much for following me. You have my heart too! Love, Linda!

  27. You were a dear to go to my blog to reply to my comment here, so I thought I’d return the favor. I had a sweet birthday this year, and I thank you! :)

  28. Beautiful..
    Belated Happy B’day, I hope you may have many more of them!
    You’re a free soul and that has what made me love this blog after reading only a post. :)

  29. Maggie permalink

    Happy Birthday, happy great attitude, and happy believing in God. I’m right there with you. Thank you for following my blog. I’m going to follow yours too.

  30. I love this post. Thank you for following :)

  31. You sound like you have a great attitude. Enjoy every day.

  32. Wow. Congrat’s and wishing you a wonderful birthday. I discovered your site after you made a comment on my own. Thank you by the way. It is inspirational to hear your words, particularly after hearing that you have had your challenges. It is so much about attitude and taking what we know we have, this moment, and living it in as much joy as we can. What I do know is that this is indeed all worth it, and so much of our growth here on Earth comes from painful situations we experience. Look at the person you have become!! Grateful to hear from you and I look forward to your contnued posts.

  33. I’m not even two decades old, i’m about to sit some exams and am mildly freaking out – but then i read this and life slots back into perspective. Learning to take each moment as it comes, each day as it comes and not looking back or looking too far forward – something i’v been striving to achieve and have failed at miserably. But you’ve just motivated me to keep on, and as I do it, to continue being cheerful, vibrant and happy. Thank you!!! Hope your day was phenomenal and you enjoy many more in the wide potential of all birthdays over the age of 50 :) Xxx

  34. Also – Proverbs 3 vs 5 and 6: Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not on your own understandings, but in all your ways honour Him and He will make your Paths Straight. God Bless and Shine X

  35. Happy Birthday!! God bless you and keep you in His care. Thanks so much for checking out my blog too! From California, with a hug!

  36. Happy belated birthday!!
    I lost my mom to cancer many years ago, so your story hits close to my heart. Enjoy life, and God bless you!

  37. johnlmalone permalink

    thanks for subscribing to my blog. I swill endeavour to make it worth your while. You’re not going to belive this but I jumped with joy when I read that you are the same age as me . We will be able to compare notes on many things.

    Wow! Happy Birthday!!!!

  39. mothcaterpillar permalink

  47. artistmum permalink

    Thanks for visiting my blog,, and ‘like’ ing it! Happy B-day to you and many more. I do the Revlon 5K every year for women and cancer. I’ll think of you this May 5th and that you are a survivor! You are inspiring :)




  49. YAY!! The c word no longer needs to be scarey. Because of people like you who are proving everyday that it can be overcome. Not only with diet but also and even more powerfully with attitude and thoughts. Keep up the good work!!! And keep filling your mind with only life and inspiration so there’s no room for disease! Marlene

  50. ps… Happy Birthday. My 64 was just 4 days after yours. We’re not getting older we’re getting better!!!

  51. Computers!!! I just sent a long lovely note and it disappeared… who knows maybe it’s heading your way but just in case I’ll re-send it as much as I remember.
    YAY!!! The c word is no longer such a scarey thing thanks to people like you who are proving that there is nothing to fear!!! The more that people overcome it the more that it will end up disappearing out of our inventory of illness… to be replaced, I hope with wellness, energy, aliveness. Yes diet helps but mostly we are learning that our attitude and thoughts are what create our reality, including our physical condition. Keep it up!!! Many blessings, Marlene

  52. That’s my motto, too. Hope for the best, plan for the worst. Hope the next year brings you some surprises.

  53. Happy Belated Birthday! What a coincidence, I turned 34 on the 6th of April! Hoera for the both of us!

  54. Happy belated birthday! Good philosophy! Keep up the good writes. You are not pulling any punches and I think the reality of how you are writing, is echoed in others thoughts.

  55. I love your attitude – very simple. I like simple. I think I shall try your methodology! Thanks for visiting my blog.

  56. Happy Belated Birthday. Thank you for liking my post. Have a wonderful day and I love your attitude towards life and aging. Renee :)

  57. Wow! I came here to thank you for the like on my post, but you have just uplifted me! Have a grand new birthday year and have fun with those good deeds! You’re awesome in my book!

  58. happy birthday!!!!

  59. Thank you for visiting my blog and hope you will enjoy my receipe :) .Also Happy Birthday (a bit late but now i found out)

  60. Congratulations on your great outlook on life. Blessings to you and yours.

  61. Sorry I’m late to the party, but happy birthday wayway!

  62. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!!! Thank you for coming by and “liking” the grand finale of my series on “How God can use your life story.” Looking around your blog, I think you already may have figured it out. ;) Keep up the good work!

  63. THANK YOU for visiting my “pun-ny” photoblog and leaving a “like.” I’m right behind you in age (by 2 years). I applaud your “can do” outlook. I started my Mon.-Fri. photoblog on Nov. 1, 2010, and I have never missed a weekday post! A week ago I decided I was too sedentary and started power-walking from 6:00 – 6:30 every morning in our neighborhood. We aren’t dead until we either (1) stop moving or (2) stop thinking what our next move will be.

    –John R.:

  64. Happy Belated Birthday & hope you enjoyed a blast …. it is always a blessing to be able to continue celebrating our birthdays as the years ‘sail’ by … 65 is a a great milestone in life …enjoy your life & keep on smiling :-)

    What an outstanding post, an outstanding attitude — you are such an inspiration! I am a follower so please keep posting!

  68. I am greeting you Happy Birthday yesterday, today and every single day thereafter!
    I also thank you for your blog which I truly enjoyed reading because you must have given me the answer to a question I have been asking since 2002.
    In that year I had a heart attack and I was a 20 seconds flat liner. I woke up from a coma five days later. Eversince I have asked the question…why am I still here?
    I think He made you give me my answer.
    You are awesome!

  69. Happy belated birthday. I want to know if you had 65 candles or 6½ candles. lol

  70. Happy birthday! You made me smile today, happy and grateful for and to God.

    Thank you! Godbless!


    • Happy birthday, i had my 72nd today and i got more gifts than I got at Christmas, now I`ll have to see this Christmas. :-)

    My husband just found out he’s cancer-free, after being diagnosed with thyroid cancer last winter, having his thyroid removed and having radiation treatment. Congratulations to both of you and may you both live the rest of your life cancer-free!! What a happy birthday you must have had!

  72. you sound like you’re surprised to have lived to 65…back off the stress and weird lifestyle …relax….you’ll live longer

  73. Samyueru Iriamuzu permalink

  76. お誕生日おめでとうございます(Happy Birthday)!
    ”like”ありがとうございました。oneanna65 さんのブログをお訪ねするチャンスに恵まれて嬉しいです。勇敢にガンと戦ってらっしゃるご様子、素晴らしいと思いました。

  77. I appreciate your enthusiasm and positive attitude. I am also a caner patient, just past my 1 year anniversary since diagnosis, but still recovering from treatment. Complications make recovery slow and while I have been extremely positive for the most part, days like today make it hard to stay that way. Thanks for stopping by my blog. It led me to your positive attitude, which is what I needed today.

  78. Belated happy birthday, so cool that your blogging! Thanks for visiting, hope you’ll be back. I will check in with you as well!

  79. I liked Gandhi, I did. But if I were to listen to his advice: “Live as if you were to die tomorrow…,” I would never make plans for the future.

    • I have no context for that statement from Gandhi, but I will say that it matches my own perspective. I try to live life such that if I were to die tomorrow I will be happy with how I lived. I certainly see your point, I just thought it interesting that it matches what is probably a different context.

      • I hope my statement wasn’t in any way a downer for you on your birthday. I have no idea what point I was trying to make or why I was trying to make it here. You are a survivor and I congratulate and applaud you. I think if you can live every day giving the best of yourself to yourself and to others you will have no regrets. And when you are 70, I’d like to hear what your plans are for the next 5 years. Happy Birthday!

      • Not to worry, it’s not my birthday (yet) and I was in no way offended. I just thought it interesting, and not in the least disagreeable :)

    • Perhaps you only heard half the quote. The way I heard it was “Live today as if you were going to die tomorrow, and plan for tomorrow as if you were going to live a thousand years.”

  80. Great attitude. Happy Birthday.

  81. Happy Birthday and I wish you many more. Cancer-free if possible. If not, then with as little pain and discomfort as possible.

  82. Happy Birthday – very cool post.

  83. You are an inspiration! thank you!

  84. happy belated birthday! thanks for stopping by my blog, and I hope to grow old gracefully just like you :)

  85. This is such an inspirational post! Congratulations to you and I hope you have many more happy birthdays :)

  86. belated birthday greetings from me too! ; )

  87. Happy belated birthday. I admire your spirit and hope that, five years from now , you’ll be planning for the next five years .

My dad died of cancer @ 84 in 2010 he was stage 4 Kidney cancer at diagnosis but he pressed on for about another 2 years the Doctors were amazed given his age but he fought and he stayed positive until the end, an I admire that.

  95. thank you for joining my blog THE WAY TUGEAU !! and happy 65th…. having also recently turned 65 I know your celebration. I haven’t had cancer, but other ‘challenges’ and here I am…dealing happily each day, doing TONS, working, caring for others, loving and watching family grow (almost 7 grandkids) and SO apprecative. Can tell you feel that too. It’s worth the negative to get the heightened positive. And it is what it is…so go with it! right! enjoy !!

  96. Happy 50+ birthday!

  97. Happy very belated birthday and thanks for following my blog!

  98. i recently turned 64 – age has no dimensions – no limits – except on our bodies -i lived alone for some 20 years of a self imposed existence – how stupid – a woman recently tore down my walls of Troy and set me free – i too have had cancer – best thing that has happened to me – it took my voice and let me free to speak with creativity

  99. Happy birthday enjoy

  116. Great post! Happy belated birthday.
    Thanks for following my blog.

    Your fighting spirit reminds me of my mom, years ago. During her chemo- a large room with patients attached to IV poles, all of them quietly reading, talking to a friend

    except for mom, with her headphones on listening to Mozart, IV pole trailing behind,

    and dancing.


  117. borderer permalink

    Golly, you seem like a spring chicken, child. After all, I am 67. Remember, the older you get, the less the rules apply. Kick out the jams!

  118. thank you for following my blog. as i was going through yours we have a couple of things in common. #1. your birthday is the same day as my daughter! #2. i to am a cancer survivor. seven years strong! even though i seem to not be able to do some of the things i use to do physically, like you, i live one day at a time. i love your upbeat, positive attitude! keep it up and keep healthy!

  121. Happy Birthday! My stepmother died of cancer last year, age 54 years. Not enough time…

  122. Happy 65th, and wishes for many, many more! It’s great to connect with another fabulous woman blogger over 55! Thanks for following my blog :) Hope you find it inspiring.

  123. What an amazing piece you’ve written. I wonder if you know the impact these words might have on others? I’m approaching my 50th birthday in less than 2 months. I can hardly digest this. I go frolicking through my life like I’m some kind of perennial 20-something until my joints remind me otherwise and then “BAM”. Holy cow how did I arrive here? I’m really sure how to approach this new chapter in the book of my life. Your words have given me inspiration though as I move forward into the next half century of my life, not that I plan on making it to 100. That all depends on how the next decade goes. It’s funny how now you begin to see the finality of life. When we’re younger, life is a vista without end and the end isn’t a concern. When the end begins to loom distantly on the horizon you reassess what you value and what you want to accomplish. I have to say that this causes a very sweet feeling in me of anticipation. There truly is something wonderful about moving into the later years of life, a blissful secret that can only be discovered by arriving.

    My mother is also “over 50″ although just a bit more over than you are. She is also a cancer survivor and I plan on sharing this with her. Your bright optimism really is worth sharing far and wide. Simply beautiful.

  124. Late Happy Birthday! Please stay positive . We never know what life holds in store for us, but attitude affects everything. Thank you for visiting my blog. and giving me a chance to connect with you.

  125. Happy belated birthday! AND thank you for following Marti Ink :-).

I’ll keep you in my prayers regarding your challenge with cancer. Keep smiling and blogging. Thanks for following my photog blog and liking my “Four and Almost Fourteen” post!

  129. I too am proud of my age. Not all 58 year olds are so full of a zest for life. Some have given up and are “old” at my age. Perhaps those of us who have faced our mortality appreciate and value the years under our belts. We know life is precious and can be taken from us at any time. Here’s to another 50 years!!

    Thank you for following my blog. It’s now May and much too late to wish you a happy birthday. But I wish you many blessings in every moment of your life. Bravo to your zest for life which many people half your age are missing on. You are an inspiration and I am glad to know you. *Hugs*

  142. hi, sorry it’s kinda late to say a birth day wishes but nothing is too late, don’t you think? Wish you all the best in your life and keep spirited, good motivation. cheers

  143. Your post made me cry! In a good way! I am so happy there are still people with spirit like yours on this planet!

  144. someone told me that you should celebrate important birthdays as if they are a string of pearls. you have as many birthdays in that year as there are pearls on the string. I turned 60 in april and i have decided that that is how i am going to celebrate this year. every day that something wonderful happens, whether its the scent of the gardenia in the air or a visit from one of my children, or even finding the perfect book to read on the porch before summer turns the porch in to an inferno, i am going to think “happy birthday to me”. i hope your string of pearls goes on forever.
    thanks for like our blog. we are humbled by yours and laughed out loud at the fact that your blogging issues are just like ours!

  159. I’ll be turning 60 next December and no on could be more surprised than I am. “. . .life is dangerous. …..Risk never sleeps….. From the minute we wake-up (if we wake-up), anything can happen to us.” Great line. True, too. On top of that, many of us (well, at least me) took more risks than needed because we were not sure we really want to be here. Thankfully, I’ve also come to a place where I am now grateful to God for each day, whatever it brings my way. Happy belated birthday.

  160. Happy Birthday!! And many many more! You have a wonderful attitude. I wish you much happiness and many blessings.

    U are completly right. I wish u happy and healthy long life.

    The first forty years of our life give the text, the next thirty furnish the commentary upon it, which enables us rightly to understand the true meaning and connection of the text with its moral and its beauties.

  164. Happy birthday! God never takes for granted any one that appreciates Him,exceedingly abundantly above your imaginations and desires will He do for you…wishing you long life and prosperity as keep fulfilling your essence of existence. God bless.

    Thanks for following one of my blogs (foundinfrance).

  203. Reblogged this on Poetry Journal World and commented:
    I came across this blog when the author had liked my poem “A Prize Won Fair.” What an honor to know that someone like him liked what I wrote. Thank you Sir!

  204. Hi there oneanna65! I just came in and checked my mail, what a blessing to see your “like” message there. :) My mother wrote “Joy in the Midst of My Storm” and wanted to share it with everyone. Cancer is one nasty booger but it’s defeatable with faith in God, a determined mind and healthy living. I also want to wish you a happy belated birthday! There’s a scripture that reads, “Faith without works is dead.” You have the works – eating right and healthy living but I challenge to say, “I *will* live to be 70 and plus! There are no impossibilities with God. My mother lived through colon cancer in 2006 and breast cancer in 2010, never once did she doubt that she would not only survive but live long and prosper. I believe the same for you. God bless you for your positivity, love and willingness to share with all of us. I hope to see you again! ~Rebecca

  230. Your persistence and love of life is amazing. I wish the best for you. I am an atheist so I cannot say “God Bless”. Nevertheless, if there is a God, may he/she or it bless you.

  231. Happy 65th in April of this year; and many more. Although I have lost people dear to me to cancer, I also know several who have pushed through over 25 years of contending or remission.

  232. Happy Birthday, and what a wonderful plan. :-)

  233. This short life is but a bridge, a passage to the real life. Our souls are eternal. They are having an earthly experience for a change!

    I hope you keep enjoying the rest of your life, and move peacefully to the next, with the Grace of God.

  263. “Risk never sleeps”. I like that, That really sticks with me for some reason.

  264. You are amazing and an encouragment to us all. Cancer effects every family. My sister-in-law has been taking chemo treatments for 8 years now. She has a very agressive breast cancer that has shown up in her lungs. The doctor wants her to remain on chemo treatment for 4 more years. She was in her early 30 when she was diagnosed. She loves God and is a fighter.
    I love your blog. You can really help lots of people. Thank you so very much for stopping by my blog. Blessing Always and may God continue to be with you!!! Diane

  265. It’s so easy to lose sight in day-to-day grind that every day is a gift. Thanks for the reminder.

  266. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’m glad that you’re a cancer survivor.

  267. I seem to be at the bottom of a very, very long list of well wishers. I’m 63 3/4 and I’m happy about the 3/4. Every day count as you well know. Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is the easy way for me to find you and learn what you are writing about. I look forward to reading more of your posts.

  268. Belated birthday wishes and a roaring cheer for survival of the big C. I love your attitude. Thanks for dropping by my blog.

  269. thanks for being so upbeat and positive about life and your life! that is a strong key to survival in this world—-I also noticed you mentioned God. That is the main thing.

  270. Awesome achievement. Congratulations. Prayers can heal you. Just believe.God bless you.

  271. Most of exist and do not live.
    Even Existence is a Miracle as we have a shell called body which is the most complicated mechanism in the world.
    While existing is not in our hands , Living is.
    Looking at Life in its perspective where we know that Life and The world is despite us and not because of us.
    May He Grant us the wisdom to know what is important and what is not..
    Acquired possessions including relations need not contribute to our happiness in the world nor the world.
    For they owe us nothing.
    We need to live at peace with ourselves and only we can do it,
    May He bestow you with Contentment ,Peace and Tranquillity and no rancour and regrets.
    * I am sixty two.

  272. Congrats to You, GREAT attitude! Cancer is high in my family, so you ROCK on!

  273. Happy Belated! Mine was the 13th of April. God Bless you and I rebuke any form of cancer in the name of Jesus. My son is also a survivor, and I give all thanks to my heavenly Father. Thank you for visiting my site. Make sure your sugar count does not rise while drinking those shakes. :-) Love You!

  274. Just a few words from an old song:
    “I speak life.. You’re gonna live oh my brother (my sister).
    I speak life.. You are the the head and not the tail.. You will prevail.
    I speak life.. Don’t give up the fight for your life.. You shall live and not die”..

    Life is most definitely worth fighting for..and a happy belated birthday to you. Cheers!!!

  275. Happy Belated Birthday!

    I was scrolling through a few of your posts and I love them all…with the exception of one thing.

    It seems that you believe in God because He will save you, but not because you love Him. For example, in your post “Cancer Killing Recipe,” your faith was ultimately derived from fear of death.

    I do admire the revelation that you’ve come to. We should live as healthy as possible. But, perhaps God is also keeping you alive so that you can have a deep relationship with Him & call others to Him.

    This is just a thought. Keep up the great work!

  276. Happy Belated B’Day! Many More!

    Janet (MaherMatters)

  291. You share your birthday with younger sister who is 62 and also overcame a very nasty cancer a few years ago. I am older than you and haven’t got time to die – too many journals still to create, too many missing ones still to recover, and too many entries still to make, let alone having time to look after all my animals and land and plants and trees and I have another two years until my youngest ‘cellist leaves school. I didn’t take on any youngsters when I retired from full-time, because my Mum died suddenly at 67 and many of her pupils were traumatised. I am her final age now, but every day here is beautiful even with torrential rain, horse flies and manure collection to be done. :-)

    Eat healthy food and travel more ;-)
    Cheerio from Thailand!

  306. Wow, great post. I hope you had a wonderful birthday! And thank you for liking my post at as well. You definitely celebrate all things whole! :) Peace!

  307. Well done, 65 is a good innings and I hope you go on to make your century.
    My fortune teller told me I will die when I’m 67 (he said I will be eaten by a shark!). I have 11 years to go. I don’t really believe in fortune telling but the good thing about knowing when I am going to pop is that I have made sure that I fill my time productively and not waste a single day.

  308. Awesome outlook on life! So many healthy people complain about unimportant things. Keep the philosophy, it’s healthy!

  309. You have been such a faithful follower of my spiritually centered poetry site, hence I felt you were due for a visit. Both my wife and I turned seventy earlier this year. My wife is a two time breast cancer “overcomer.” We work every day in our State Farm Insurance Agency of twenty-eight years in McKinney, Texas. Our life is full in communting between our McKinney home and our second home on Cedar Creek Lake in East Texas. Truly life begins at sixty-five!

  310. Very inspirational. Thank you for sharing.

  311. I wish I had read your post a long time ago… Thank you. And I am convinced that you will beat everything life throws at you. Go for it! The world should read everything you write. Hey, how about doing some painting?

  312. I love this! Your words are encouraging and insightful! Thank you for sharing…

  313. Your way of living is just plain awesome. I’m 67 so I can relate, though I’m not living with cancer. I send you healing energy today and every day. I wish you strength and joy. Thank you for liking one of my posts – not for the usual reasons, but because it allowed me to find you. May today be filled with interesting moments. I would welcome a personal message if you wish.
    Warm regards, Susan

  314. Happy sweet 65th :) It is another milestone in your precious life. Every year, day, moment… a gift. Thanks for sharing your story.

  315. Happy birthday from another cancer survivor (and someone who is 65).

  316. Happy 49 and and holding; I do not like round numbers, I know Cancer is an insidious beast it can take away ones joy and peace, but thanks to faith found and bound with grace the beast it can be fought. I had a prest come to me, as I lay in intensive care, my son its time for the last rights, Father I’m not ready yet; I have only begun this fight, now it goes no each day the war it rages but grace does win and holds the line. For each minute of ones life is a precious gift one must savor and enjoy.It is for sure our time is measured each has an appointed allotment,but its not the length of time but how we live that says the most to others.God has now blessed me with two life times divided by cancer and its Friends, and now I face the beast again stronger more sure and grateful for each day. for my life is not defined by the big C but by my faith the grace and Christ Jesus who has set me free. may you ever be more blessed and enjoy the gift..

    I really like these milestone birthdays, Here is hoping I get 40 more and you get 65 more!

Unfortunately, she didn’t get to 65… That’s why I love how you approach life, it really is a blessing every day.

  353. Thanks for liking my blog. I have a friend who is dealing with lung cancer. She was diagnosed 2 years ago. Did chemo and had a lung removed, and her brain zapped a few times for tiny specs. She is cancer-free, for now. Every two months she gets an MRI. Every 3 months she gets a PETSCAN. She is also blogging about her life with this. I sent her your link. You have great data to share.

  354. Happy Birthday!! How inspiring are you? Just look at the number of comments!! You rock…. 10 more birthdays for you….at the very least!!!!

  355. Thanks for stopping by and liking my blog on spiritual practice. I was glad to discover your post also–my birthday was also on April 6!

  356. April 6th: That was my mother’s birth date. Happy belated birthday. So you are an Aries. Strong willed, hard working, and fun to be with. My mom was a singer until she lost her ability due to a goiter operation, but she still danced. When one of the big bands played on the radio if you were home you were dancing with Mom. I feel like I know you. Love your blog. Hope and laughter is all we need.

  357. Happy Birthday. What a wonderful story of courage. Live many more. Thanks for visiting my blog. RLTE

  358. Thank you for visiting my blog. I, too, just had a birthday, my 69th. And I too, am a cancer survivor of 29 years. I had asked God at the time for enough time to raise my children – well those children now have children plus one is a grandmother too. I know I am blessed but I also think that it is like you said, one day at a time and live each day to it fullest. Cancer is beatable, I know.

    Happy birthday! You have a very inspirational story. Your thoughts are very powerful. Electromagnetic waves can do anything, and having so many people using their brain power together is excellent. My birthday was at the weekend, so it was much more recent than yours. But it must be fantastic really, to have people continually reading your blog and telling you: happy birthday! When really, it has passed now. I am glad you visited my blog – I am very pleased to meet you. I want to spread happiness and I hope you enjoyed it. I will come again.

  360. I hope you had a terrific birthday and I wish health and happiness.

    Thank you for visiting my blog.

  363. I like this blog entry. Nothing is impossible for Him. I am approaching 5 years with cancer and God has strengthened me. I believe I will be completely healed by his hand. The lymphoma has been steadily shrinking without treatment.

    Best to you.

  375. A little lot late, but Happy Birthday into July!!!!!

  376. Inspiring stuff. I think the trick with any illness is simply to concentrate on taking the next step. Sometimes, trying to tackle the whole enormity of a thing can be a little overwhelming. However, by just getting the next step right, you can keep moving forwards.

    Good stuff. I’ll see you when you’re seventy.

  377. I have a friend who cured herself of kidney cancer when she was in her mid forties. She celebrated her 70th birthday last year! She did what you are doing: healthy foods, meditation, and lots of time in nature. Be well my friend…

    I reckon you’ve got at least another 40 years on the clock yet!! Probably more than me!

  397. I love your fighting spirit. A friend at church recovered from 4th stage backbone cancer.
    She is now a living testimony. One fella I know of had gum cancer and continue to preach the word of God to and is traveling to Malaysia from the UK annually. He is is late 70s. He may not travel alone anymore.

Thanks for having a beautiful blog and take the time to share, I think the little things can become the brightest ones for this world, when they are made with love. Lot of blessings for you everyday.

  400. Happy Birthday! I am an over 50 cancer survivor too! I have already lived 5 years since the cancer diagnosis, so now I am working on my next 5 years. You go girl! Live life to the full! And yes, God was with me every step of this battle, just as He is with you.

  405. Thank you for such a life-affirming post! Thank you for finding my blog and liking my post. I hope you will watch my Late Bloomer episodes as they are intended to be life-affirming in every way, and entertaining! My first thought in the morning and the last thought at night is “Thank you God, for this day.” I’m sharing your post with my dear friend who has had three bouts with cancer, and another friend who just got a second cancer diagnosis, and another friend who’s exhausted all treatments and is hoping for the best. Connecting with my soil is the best thing I’ve ever done for my head, so, I highly recommend growing something (plant more than one, haha!), it really gives you so much to look forward to! God Bless you!

  406. Another five years? Is that all?
    Last year I made the half century, and I decided the next fifty years are going to be different from the last fifty years. If you’re still here and breathing, you might as well take the long-term view.

  407. Belated Happy Birthday from me too ;-)
    And thanks for ‘liking’ my blog.

  408. I love this. Happy 3-months-late belated birthday(:

  409. Oh, do I know how 65 is such a milestone! I posted a “birthday” post on my 65th birthday too. I have been spared any major illnesses so far, but have had a lot of “accidental” medical setbacks so share that experience with you to some extent. Love your positive attitude! Can I “borrow” your over-50 response? It’s so much better than my “I’m 60-something” retort if anyone dares to ask!

  410. 65? You are still a baby!!! And you only expect to live 5 years more??? Heck I’m 76 and need to live at least 4 more for my 20th Leap Year birthday when I will be 20!!!

  411. bellesogni permalink

    This post was April 6th. Today is July 22nd.
    Are you okay?

  412. Happy birthday. Our best friend died of cancer at 66, and my husband turns that this year. He quit trying as soon as he found out. You have done so well. It’s not easy. My mom battled it multiple times, and lived to be 80 – 20 years after she had her cancerous kidney removed. Keep on thriving.

  413. Congratulation. Happy 65th Birthday!!!
    God bless you………..
    Keep up the spirit. You’re so inspirational.. :)

  414. Darling
    You are much more than a ‘survivor’ – which in itself is a GREAT feat, worth celebrating.

    You, my dear, are a THRIVER ( from the verb, to Thrive!).

    All the gods and goddesses bless you for your upbeat spirit and indomitable humor.

    May you continue celebrating life and your womanhood for many decades of wellness!

  415. What a beautiful post. You have such a positive outlook on life. I leave here feeling uplifted :)

  416. You have such a great attitude and zest for life. You remind me of m dad, who has battled Cancer twice. I think it’s most important to have that attitude. You seriously can do anything if you believe it hard enough. If you are determined you can do it.

    My dad was told he had six months MAX when they found it the first time. He said, “No I don’t.” and through sheer will and stubbornness survived for like 28 years before it came back. This time it manifested in a lump in his throat. A new set of doctors told him that it didn’t look good.

    This time the lump was a tumor that turned out to be wrapped around his jugular. A three hour surgery turned into six. He survived that and then through sheer will and stubbornness he ignored the doctors that finally told him he couldn’t eat solid food and armed with a blender and spoon he set out to prove them wrong again. He blended everything he could find and blended the crap out of it and then gradually lessened the time amount of blending. If he choked he went back to pureeing it. That was three years ago.

    It is all in your attitude. You and everyone who reads this should keep being strong. Listen to yourself and KNOW you are stronger than a few measly cells. That doesn’t mean no fear, but it does mean facing it and walking through the fire.

  417. I am happy for your birthday!!! I spent my 55th birthday in hospital being operated on for cancer. The storm passed, I’m still standing. And will stand as long as God gives me breath. I am always so happy to hear from other survivors. Bless you and many more years of living and joy to you!!!

  418. Nice read, I am going to link you tomorrow on my webpage. Let some more people know about your perspective on life, which is interesting to say the least.


  419. Oh may The Lord bless you and keep you and make His face to shine upon you. Thanks for reading my post about Souls!

  420. It is long past the time since you have made this post, but I wanted to wish you a (belated) happy birthday, and many more to come.
    (Thank you for looking at my blog, as well.) I don’t comment very much (this is my first comment on someone else’s blog! I’m still new to WordPress), but I wanted to let you know that I found this post inspirational. I only just reached my 18th birthday, so I hope that when I am your age, I will be just as wise and life-loving – maybe I can inspire others as you have done me.

  421. This is so totally awesome. Happy birthday again and again!!! Loved it

  422. Happy 65th Birthday! I wish you as many more as you want and may they all be filled with love, health and a sense of fulfillment and joy!

    Thank you for visiting my blog; I’m happy it brought me here! I love your attitude of gratitude. The older I get, the more I realize the importance of simply being thankful for so many things we often take for granted. I’m wondering if you have ever read a book by Jason Wright called “The Seventeen Second Miracle”? It had a slow start for my tastes but picked up and painted some great life lessons (with a nice little surprise twist near the end!). If you check it out, I hope you enjoy! MK

  424. edlynch permalink

    Blessings to you! And you your sense of optimism and enjoyment!

  425. Congratulations! You’ve completed 65 successful revolutions around the sun at a blistering 66,000 miles per hour, all the while surviving within an atmosphere that, relative to the size of the earth is as thick as the skin on an apple. If that doesn’t prove you can beat the odds against risk, I don’t know what does! And may you survive many more revolutions! (… including the social one to come, when the wheels come fully off the economic bus). Cheers.

  426. Many happy returns.
    Don’t think of stopping at 70!
    God bless you.

  427. Happy over 50th !!! (Im 47 so far)
    God bless and keep you

    Best wishes,

  428. Wow, that is an awesome blog. Congratulations, you have done well! I think you can do 5 years. That’s my kind of plan, too: read, eat good food, study, exercise, good stuff. I am happy for you. Count today as something you’ve done good. You affected me in a good way.

  429. You are really inspiring. I wish you happiness!

    Belated congrats on your 65th. I turned 61 on April 10. Thanks for taking the time to read my blog. I became a grandfather on May 1. That really changed my goals for living as long as I can. I will do all I can, but it really is up to the Lord. Keep fighting the good fight. Five years is a good short term goal. Let’s both make that and keep right on going.

  431. Well, Happy Birthday (just a little late)! I’m only three years behind you, but I want to follow your example! :)

  432. Congratulations! (the “over 50″ term made me think of my mom, that’s her term for her age! People like you always inspire me! I just found out that I have a tumor on my ovary by having an ultrasound of my bladder. I’m only 21, and the thought of getting a biopsy when they remove the tumor and it possibly coming up cancerous scares the living daylight out of me. By reading inspirational stories and posts by survivors such as you, it’s not as scary. Be it cancerous or not, I know I’ll make it through. Thank you. :)

  433. Congratulations a few months late. I felt the same way when I had heart surgery in 2009. Life becomes more precious.

  434. it might be too late to say happy birthday to you. but it’s never too late to thank God for having someone like you who can inspire others to embrace life no matter what, even while fighting with cancer. i love you positive energy towards life. thanks for visiting my blog and liking my post. keep on writing…

  435. happy birthday!! and thanks for finding my blog, I am going to follow yours if you don’t mind!

  436. I will add my little comment to the hundreds you already have…with so many good wishes and good vibrations, you are creating a bit of magic…..makes it special…the future awaits you! Carry on!

  437. A very belated Happy Birthday – but Happy Happy Birthday all the same! Enjoy the next 65 years :) !! Ya never know … you might be on a record-breaking path for age!?!

  439. Turned 65 December of 2011, not a big deal. Find what you love and do it, then it doesn’t matter if you make it another 5 years or another 25. I still ride my mountain bike and my road bike, why? Because a moving target is harder to hit! Thanks for stopping by our post and keep on keepin’ on.

  440. A very happy birthday…with an attitude like that, you’ll live more in 5 years than most folks do in 50…

    Interesting perspective – to know the number of days you’ve been on the plannet! I don’t’ keep such close track… Happy birthday!

  470. Belated happy birthday wishes. I enjoyed reading your inspiring blogs… Thanks for dropping by morethanreading.

  471. Happy Birthday. I liked your comment about how everything and every day in life is dangerous, and yet look how many people live long lives to create the average of 80 years or more? Amazing isn’t that, that we make it through the day. That’s something to celebrate every day.

  472. Thank you for liking my post, Getting What You Want. You are an inspiration. Keep living.

  473. After reading this post, I’m convinced that the problems/issues I’m stressing about are minor. You are a soldier.

  474. Love love love this blog.Made me feel good.Happy Birthday and here is the biggest cyber hug I can conger up.God’s Blessings

  475. Happy Birthday and thanks for ‘liking’ my post on my Fearful Dogs’ Blog. Appreciate it.

  476. Happy Belated Birthday…

  477. Congratulations and a belated Happy Birthday!! I am over 50 too but in October I turn 63. I’ll take a page from your book and I won’t say it again:) How time flies. Enjoyed your blog.

  478. Much thanks for saying that our TrueTyme clock and more is awesome. So are you!!!

    While I have not to survive cancer, I did have a multi-hour heart attack in mid January of 2006. And a quad by-pass a week later. So I cannot agree with you more about how good it is to be alive.

    Warmest regards, Yale Landsberg — and my lovely wife of forty years, Jackie

    P.S. As TrueTyme was created to give instants of micro-happiness and moments of well-being, depending on when and how ti is being used, we hope that someone as positive as you will enjoy using it in all sorts of ways!!!

  479. I don’t think anyone should let their age hold them back from anything! Keep goin, gal!

  480. A belated happy birthday. I only found out about it because you liked a post on my blog today. Interesting to note that your birthday is the day before mine. Also, on my 65th birthday, I was also battling cancer. Five years later, I am a survivor with no remaining symptoms. Hope you will be too.

  481. Wow. Thats really very inspiring. Thanky you. And thanks for giving a like to my blog..even though it was full of grammatical mistakes. You are really a great person.

  482. Happy birthday and congrats on not just being a survivor but living and appreciating the very gift of every day. U do never know what’s around the corner. I’ve just from visiting my very healthy and fit 80plus mother…..who currently sports panda bear black eyes and swollen cheek from a bad fall at a railway station, running to catch a train. She’s smiling, she broke nothing and asks no sympathy…so yeh u don’t know what the next moment brings so we need to celebrate every moment.

  483. That was a very moving post. I hope you did enjoy your birthday and the summer.

  484. What a great message: “If anyone can do it, I can do it!”

  485. Happy Birthday! I won’t hit that one until next year but I haven’t faced what you have. It’s this a wonderful way to meet and greet people? Blogging and writing is a technology I appreciate when it allows positive sharing with others. Thanks for the like.

  486. Happy Belated Birthday!!! Sorry, I’ve been so behind in my “reader”….thank you for enjoying my posts & for your informative & inspiring blog!

  487. This is a very inspirational Post and I am so glad that you visited my blog to give me a chance to join the Happy Birthday wishes! I am also over 50 and quite a bit over than you. I am finding this Journey to be challenging but the most fun I have had in my life. Meeting people like you is one of the best parts. I also have health problems, Who doesn’t, but I don’t mind fighting with whole foods, working in my veggy garden, painting, writing and making the most of life.My warmest regards to you!

    Thanks for liking my blog post on Claude Izner books! Fun that someone notices what I write!

  492. Congratulations on your milestone and Happy Birthday! Yes, one never knows if they are going to be around for the next one, especially after we hit 50. So I say to you, way to go, and may you be here to blog for many, many, more to come!

  494. Hello there! Oh wow, what an amazing story! Your zest for love is something I hope for. THank you for inspiring me and thank you for visiting my blog. God bless you always!

  495. Happy belated birthday! Wonderful that you have learned to live one day at a time! We do not know what will happen moment to moment. We are often afraid to live life but at 55 I have been learning to put my foot in it! Now I put both feet in and face those fears that life puts in front of us. Funny when you do that most things work out just perfect! All the Best to you!

  496. Wishing you at least 50 more! Sorry I missed the special day, but glad I found you! Thanks for all your lovely blogging support–I appreciate you!

  497. thanks for visiting my blog. Best to you. Hang in there and keep on swinging.

  498. * * * HaPpY BeLaTeD Birthday! * * * Thank you for visiting our Moonglow Jewlery blog!

  499. Happy belated birthday also. I love the way you have years and days figured out to their numerical extractions. Your cheerful attitude is also very nice. I’m losing my father to cancer this year, and he is always annoyed when people ask him why he’s smiling all of the time, “Why should I frown, That doesn’t help anything.” is his quote.

  500. Just wanted to wish you a VERY belated Happy Birthday (but a sincere one nevertheless) and wish you many, many more happy and healthy years. Also, I wanted to thank you for reading my blog and encouraging me with your “likes”. I’ve enjoyed reading your posts and this birthday one made me pause for a moment and reflect on how lucky we are to have the chance to enjoy the things that we have and do. Will stop back here for more visits.

  501. Happy belated birthday to you. My birthday is April 9th. I turned 60 this year. A lot of good people are born in April!! You are a cancer surviver!! I used to work for a Cancer Center in Florida. There were many that were survivers.!! We had a ‘Celebration of Life’ every year and honered all the survivers. It grew every year!! Keep being happy and celebrate life every day!!

  502. I know this is quite belated, but Happy Birthday! May you have joy and happiness in the years ahead. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!

  503. I wish you many more years of enjoying God’s blessing any you blessing many people with your writing and your courage. Thank you.

    May the Lord continue to bless you all the days of your life. I’m a few months late, but happy birthday anyways :) Thank you for sharing your life with all us strangers out here. You inspire more than you know, I’m sure!

  505. Happy Bday GOD bless you more happiness more life u r a fighter

  506. Happy Belated Birthday! I just turned 59, even with my aches and pains. I am loving life and give thanks and praises to God!

  507. It might be too late for a Happy Bithday – but it’s never too late for some happy blessings! So, I send you my blessings and lots of love!
    I noticed that living in the moment provides a very fulfilling experience, as it allows me to be fully present. And, anyway, it’s always now, isn’t it? So enjoy the now!

    All the best!

  508. Love this… “i could have died any time, any day of my life, 23660 times in those 65 years, but I’m still alive and O.K.” From the sounds of it, you are really living, not merely surviving. Happy belated birthday!

  509. HAPPY (late) BIRTHDAY!!! Much love and life around the bend, Xo

  510. Quite belated I know, but happy birthday! What a fantastically positive outlook!

  511. Very inspiring indeed

  512. I love your attitude! It’s so refreshing to have someone express so much gratitude for life. Oh and happy birthday (with many more to come!)

  513. emaillikeunderwear permalink

    amazing thing, hope is. your back can be completely up against a wall and yet no one can take that away!

  514. I love the last line in your blog about being 65 – “I HOPE FOR THE BEST IN LIFE, BUT I’M PREPARED TO FIGHT THE WORST.” That says it all about who you are – A Lover and a Warrior for good health, peace, justice and good will to all. In my memoir, from which the excerpt you read on my blog site was taken, I used the same philosophy at age 23 and survived brain surgery, then was given 3 months to live – that was 59 years ago. We need to shake hands and congratulate one another, thank God for our blessings, and keep on walkin’ down the road! Keep writing and following so many of your fans. From what I see people have written you, you have more than inspired them; you have given them a precious gift of how to look at and live their lives.

  520. I just read your post..thanks for liking mine..I totally agree with what you say and your motivation speaks to me..I am a Lyme lady survivor 61 this year and take things a day at a time.Enjoy each moment as it comes and give thanks for all we have is a great philosophy to live by :)

  521. Happy Belated Birthday! Good for you– keeping living your life

  522. Congratulations on your fight. Look forward to hearing from you on your 75th birthday too! Thanks for visiting my blog also. Pete.

  523. This is the first time I have visited your blog and I’m sorry that I missed your birthday. So, here is a late birthday wish for you: “May the Lord fill your day with love and laughter, peace and good health and may it last for many, many years to come.” I know how you feel about electing to have a positive attitude while you live with cancer, except that I don’t want cancer and so I elected to trust God to get rid of it. If it’s not from Him I don’t want it, and if you have it then it’s not from Him and you don’t have to accept it, either. My passion in life now is to share the love of God with people so they will come out of the bondage of thinking that there is no cure for cancer. There is and it was given at the cross. Blessings to you. May the Lord keep you in the psalm of His hand.

  524. Well, I awaken each succeeding morning increasingly surprised at the presence of yet another day, all my own, to rue or enjoy as I choose. Each of those is a blessing and a curse but we decide which app to start and as you say, blessings are more fun than curses.

    The only curse of which I intend to complain to Management should I get the chance, is politicians…

  525. I hope you had a great birthday and thank you for stopping by my blog.


  526. Thank you so much for sharing your feelings, and the deepest thoughts of your self-preservation. You are by far, a part of the bravest and most courageous in life. Your drive is inspiring, and your words are hope. Good post.

  548. A very Happy Birthday to you, and Many More Happy Returns of the Day than the five you mention.

  549. I love your blog, and thank you for peeking in at mine. And, Happy Birthday. You’re so right to celebrate your age. It’s a privilege to live long – I lost two brothers to accidents when they were far too young, and nearly lost my own life during a bank robbery shoot-out five years ago. Moment to moment, we have no idea when it will all end.

  550. Congratulations….you seem to be redeeming the days so productively.

  551. Although extremely belated, I just wanted to say, I hope your 65th year is as fabulous as you are! You are an inspiration! XOXO

  553. Congratulations on your birthday, longevity and positive, fight-back attitude. My 65th is in 4 days, and I may borrow some of your resolutions. I plan on looking around your site extensively. Your readers seem devoted. Thank you for all you do,

    My dad is also over 60. He is 64 now and I wish he will stay with me until 80++ with a great mental and physical conditions. Sometimes it’s a challenge to think of one day without your beloved parents which I’m so scared…
    So I just try to prolong that worst time of my life.
    I wish you also a great great health and peaceful mind.
    H B D to you! :)

  558. Congratulations on that positive attitude! It will get you everywhere you choose to go.

  560. I think you should change your second sentence to read “I am 65 years YOUNG!” And a very happy belated birthday. Wonderful to read your blog and feel life is still worth living. With that attitude I’m sure you will see out more decades!
    PS Thanks for liking my blog. :-)

  562. Happy Birthday! With a positive attitude like that I am sure you don’t look a day over 35! :)

  563. Just wanted to say bravo – and yes, when something as life-changing as that happens you see life very differently. Last year I nearly found out, at the age of 41.

  564. Bravo!!! You are a trooper. I’ll be cheering you along on your path.

  565. Happy Birthday! I am glad you are a cancer-overcomer instead of just a survivor. Keep living victoriously!

  566. You are an inspiration, a beacon of hope that makes most of us ashamed. You are also a fighter…this comes with your birthright, I know because I too have the same birthday…just a decade apart. CHEERS!

  567. First of all – Thank you very much for visiting my blog. Another Thank you for liking my posts. And finally, every single time when you like my post I know you are still there. Thank you for that. It is to late with the Happy Birthday wishes but it is not too late to wish you energy and passion to live and to do whatever you like. Your post is so optimistic. I like that kind of mood. God bless you! Go ahead with the next 5 years and your great projects. Good luck.

  568. Only just read your post, good luck with the next five years. I passed 65 some time ago, still having a great time. My wife and I are celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary this weekend, thanks for the like on one of my posts, and hope you have many more happy posts in you in the future.

  574. I have ten years on you. No cancer, but many other problems any of which could send me to the end. Can’t worry about that, as you do have to live what I am given, do what I can, and be grateful for where I am and how I got there.

  575. I wish you God’s richest blessings for the year ahead.

  576. Happy Birthday!!!

  577. Happy Birthday to you! Thanks for liking the picture i posted on Friday, but most of all thank you for this “slap” on my face! What a wanderful person you must be!

Thank you for surviving to share your importnat message. I hope people hear what you are saying about how you overcome daunting odds and dangerous disease. Dragons always go long, beyond realms of possible to achieve improbabilities and overcome great adversity. Live well, live happy and sharing is caring, thank you! I’m also a piggy perosna born in gold pig year 1959. That was barbie’s birth year & Hawaii’s satehood. Your year is same with Former CA Gov Arnold and Fomer 1st lady & Sec of St Hilary… to name a few pigs like you. Thier public perosna is not the perosn who they really are, they are obviously passionate, smart people. They have made history (often from thier own misery) as did you. I love that you bless your life and I bless you too! I often bless all my problems and concerns to reveal answers and solutions to me and they often do. If they don’t I give thanks for thei plight I face and ask it how I can serve it’s greater good. Peace, poise, power!! Luv & Aloha ~}!{~ thx 4 reading

  579. Every birthday is a blessing and every moment in life is appreciated. I’m sure you will make it 5 more years cancer free. Mine is in remission I guess you call it. It’s gone for now but could come back at any time. If I dwell on that though, they’d have to put me in the looney bin so I live life each day as if it could be the last…. Congrats on the birthday, somewhat belated! :D

    I am way late to give you birthday wishes, but I do hope that you are still keeping your resolutions. They are an inspiration to me, so much so that I plan to use them. You are right,, every day is a gift from God. Since I am still working, I felt a twang of conscience because I am known to groan about getting up and going. I need to look at those days as gifts also. It’s just hard when one is literally a night owl!

  594. I read this today. I applaud your positive attitude. Wish you many more years of happy life. Thank you very much for visiting my blog and liking it. I am a few years older than you, but luckily have manged to be healthy by regular exercise and eating healthy. I have not given up anything but try to be moderate.

    Thanks again.

And age is just a number, if you feel/think young you are young! All the best with your blog, and especially with your life and health!

  621. Thanks for the like of my post “A Light Purple”.

  622. Belated Happy Birthday ~ ;)

  623. Happy belated birthday, love your attitude!

  624. I like you already, Anna, and your “good deeds” goal is inspiring…

  625. Great story, really love it. Congratulations with your birthday and thank for liking my post :)

  626. Here’s hoping you have 23660 more days. Liked your blog.

  627. Thankfulness toward God is a very healthy thing! He provides health and deliverance.

    Have you read Eat to Live or Eat for Health? Great books I enjoyed that have a lot of anti-cancer recipes and lots of testimonials of people overcoming cancer and other diseases. Just thought I’d share!

  628. My lands. I have never seen an post with this many comments. And deservedly so. God bless you and your spunky spirit. You have more moxie than an entire village, and that is what is going to get you through this horrid disease. And not’ ‘trying to’ but DOING it, God love ya’. I understand in a different way what you are going through though not a lot of people understand why chemo is given for a disease the’e little understanding of and thus the reaction is less of understanding than confusion. (Autoimmune Disease; lupus sle, sjogren’s, ra, etc.). I am just as, well I call it stubborn. I have the case of the ‘stubborns'; while not grammatically correct, it fits the bill and has for the last 47 (48 in a few weeks) years. I thank you for stopping by my place as it led me to you.

    • Thanks. You just have to believe that you are going to be OK. And you have to do something about it, EVERY DAY…….. :) !!!

  629. Bravo! Truly inspirational, especially seeing time possible for creating ‘good deeds’.

  630. Hi oneanna65 – you and I have the same birthday!

    thanks for the thanks!!

    in peace, R @ owlmirror x

  631. This is soo beautiful.

  632. This is strange because I’ve had your blog ( like) in my folder for at least since yesterday, then today I read an article about notable people that passed away in 2012. The good news neither your name nor mine was in it.

  633. Happy Birthday and thank you for inspiring me. I got diagnosed this year, had a lot of treatment but still have more to go through all of 2013. I want to see my 65th Birthday too…. Then 70 :-)

  634. I turned 60 on April 9th – and celebrated 44 years cancer free!
    That’s a lot of days! And each one appreciated, one day at a time. It’s all anyone has, after all, right?

  635. You r truly inspirational… Wish u a happy birthday and may god bless you.
    ps: Thanks for visiting my blog :)

  636. Thank you for your affirmative response. And a belated Happy Birthday to you for your 65th. We all make a difference – no matter the length of our time here, or what we do. My mother is 88, and has been diagnosed with terminal cancer, with limited time. She like you is not wishing to make a big deal, and accepts her prognosis. Enjoy the moments in each day …

    From the younger generation, you are an inspiration to us all. May I have your wisdom and appreciation when I am your age.

    Thanks for the like on my post :)

    Happy Birthday- what a great way to look at life. Very inspirational!

  643. Thanks a lot for visiting my blog.Now I have the privilege to say,many many many happy returns.I am so happy for you!

  644. Happy Belated Birthday!!!!

  645. What a wonderful, inspirational post. I am so moved reading it. Thank you for liking my post or I might not have found you and been touched by you this day. A doctor told my mother during a critical visit one day that, “you know what life is all about Betty, it is about breathing in, and breathing out.” Keep breathing and enjoying your hours and hours and hours and hours into years and years and years. Again, I am so glad I found your blog.

  646. mindinterrupted permalink

    Happy almost half birthday! I enjoyed your blog. I will be back :)

  647. Happy Birthday! This post is so inspiring! YOU GO GIRL!

  648. I would yell out your age and be proud of every breathing moment! From one cancer thriver to another we should be thankful every day that we are here and still get to add to the world! You visited my “Have Fun With It” blog but I invite you to visit my cancer blog… and share it with anyone you know who has been touched by cancer in some way or another! It’s supposed to give ideas and bring a little joy…

  649. Happy Birthday! This is such a beautiful and inspirational entry, thank you.

  650. Thanks for liking my you can tell, at age 69 I still enjoy every day that the good Lord gives me! This morning I did a yoga class…walked two miles yesterday…going kayaking with friends next week..but I know that every day we have is a blessing..who knows what tomorrow will bring, SO I try to exercise, eat healthy, and enjoy every day!

  651. Just so you know …. life beyond 65 can be very good. IT IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT!!!
    Have a greatdae!!

  652. Thanks for liking my post! 65 is an amazing accomplishment! My you experience many, many more years wonderful life.

  653. Happy belated birthday! Thank you for visiting my Blog. I wish you all the best!

  654. Hi there! Firstly, thanks for dropping by and liking my blog.I’m liking what you’re doing here, too. You have a great attitude: both my parents, who are in their 70s are cancer survivors also – breast and non-Hodgkins’ respectively – and I can see first hand how important it is to take stock, celebrate one’s good fortune and keep on keepin’ on. Take care,


  655. This is months old, but it’s heartening to see such a positive life view from someone. Anyone. These days, there’s too much emphasis put on useless things, and not enough on how lucky one is to have lived past their first day.

    I hope you had a good birthday, and may you have many more to come.

  656. Thanks for liking my post… When I read this, I was amazed! More power.. God Bless!!!

  657. Hi Oneanna65. You are amazing. Thank you for liking my poem ‘The Cobblestones’. Best Wishes, The Foureyed Poet.

  658. Oneanna65 – Congratulations on that milestone birthday!!! Soon you will be clicking up your heels to celebrate once more – but until then – I want to thank you so very much for your continued support of my blog! Your story is inspirational in itself, but your continued support and cheeriness in the face of cancer inspires me even more to create. I count your continued support as one of those 1825 good deeds – so you only have 1824 to go!!

  659. Hey that’s a really great perspective on life. Congratulations, and I hope to be as cool as you when I reach 65 too.

  660. I started to try to figure out my, months,weeks, days, hours,etc. Then I said awe the heck with it because, I am what I am. The other day I went to an air show,when I pasted a lady that was going the oppisite direction, I started to say good morning when I looked at my watch saw it was 12:15PM. So I said I was going to tell you good morning but that was 15 minutes ago. I’m telling you this story because I missed your birthday, let’s just change it to “Your birthday year”. Happy Birthday Year. Before I forget thank you for visiting my blog.

  661. Hope you continue well! k.

  662. “Just simple stuff: working,reading, writing, keep eating healthy foods, enjoying every day and thanking GOD every day for all the blessings.”

    It’s ALL about the simple stuff. Thanking god everyday for the little things that make you happy… I just wrote a post about the importance of gratitude. I wish you many more happy birthdays!

  663. Outstanding outlook! Happy Birthday

  664. Your post reminds me of a line I like from the TV show Call the Midwife: “We have a duty to live every moment the best we can. I mean really live it. Even if it means getting hurt. Otherwise, what’s the point? We mustn’t let fear stop us.”

    A belated Happy 65th Birthday. You really are an inspiring blogger.

    • It is great that living, surviving and blogging abut it I can inspire others !!!!!!!!!!

  665. Happy (Belated) Birthday!

  666. Thanks for stopping by and checking out Marian’s Art Studio and liking my Asters. Since it is your birthday I dedicate the aster picture to you! Happy Birthday!!

  682. Great attitude!!!! Happy Birthday ;)

  683. Happy Birthday! I’m so pleased to see such a positive, exuberant view on aging. My grandmother passed away from cancer a few years back and it’s always so inspiring to see others fighting it so diligently. Good luck to you! I hope you have a brilliantly beautiful 65th year and many more to come <3

  684. Happy Birthday Oneanna65. May the next year be one of great health, true joy and “enough” abundance. Hugs from here.

    “I’m a survivor! I have survived 65 years of living and cancer.”


    I commend your strength of character. We need more souls like you – people who have no fear in declaring “I am 65″; I am a survivor, I am a blogger.
    I love it. You are the very first blogger I have come in contact with, who is your age, and who is vocal about it. Now that is audacity

  688. Happy living and I hope you are enjoying your celebrations you seem to be partaking in every day. I love your thoughts and motto. We have one life, make it happen, right? Live it to the fullest! Kudos to you and Happy Very Belated!

  692. Reblogged this on MissMangue and commented:
    I like his way of celebrating life. Sometimes we do not realize how short it can be. So I’m glad there are people who remember us, and tell us that we must live it, cherish every moment.

  693. What an inspiring post! Thanks for visiting my blog – and happy belated birthday! To at least 5, if not many more, to come. :)

  694. Happy belated birthday!!!

  695. Thanks for liking my post. I just celebrated my 62nd birthday and am also a cancer survivor. But I have many other health challenges and I am inspired by your courage and indomitable optimism. I hope to be you in another 3 years! Good on ya…

  704. You are indeed an inspiration! Keep up the good work and the wonderful writing that you do. God bless and peace.

  705. Congratulations on EVERYTHING! You are what you believe so keep thinking good things and doing good things. My belief is that cancer survivors are upping the odds for all of us by building a new genetic future. Mutations are adaptations and adaptation is survival. This is a matter that I hold close to my heart. But don’t just survive, right? LIVE.

As for how old we are … well, I’m a cancer survivor too and this year I’ll be forty and I plan on telling people every single year exactly how old I am because I am very grateful to be here. Every year is a celebration!

  709. “Basicaly, if I think about this, i could have died any time, any day of my life, 23660 times in those 65 years, but I’m still alive and O.K.”

    Haha. Brilliant take on it.

  731. Every night in bed
    as we are going to sleep
    is a small death for us
    waiting to see
    the morning light again.

    And when we open our eyes
    the beating of our heart
    and the taste in our mouth
    celebrate the beginning
    of new day of life.

    Happy first 65 years of life!

  732. Wow~!

    Life is a terminal disease and a four letter word anyway; well done so far. Now go get ’em, Tiger!!!

  733. Life is truly a gift so keep your spirits up and see beauty at every opportunity, and good in every situation. I almost died at 12 because of a serious heart condition. Recently I had several serious car accidents, followed by complex neck surgery that have left me with permanent physical impairment. Suffering and joy, that is a peace from within can coexist together. But God provides strength in the most difficult of situations. May God bless you in every way possible.

  734. Bruno Mars wrote that “Simply Amazing” song about you. Incredible story.

  735. I love your spirit! go ahead..we all with you…

  736. Inspring, truly inspiring.

    Keep going :)

  737. Just checked out your blog. Happy Holidays (I missed your bday) and eat heathly!

  738. I hope you had a wonderful birthday! Like I tell all my friends, go out and do something you’ve never done before…something you always wanted to do. Don’t worry about the money, write a hot check, or max out your cards, because today is all we have. You seem like a true survivor, and even if I don’t know you, I think you have the strength to do it!!! congrats on making it to 65!!! when my youngest turned 21 I decided to go paragliding for the first time. Tandem, with a pilot, and it has become the joy of my life, soaring like an eagle along the treetops of life. My birthday wish for you is to find something that brings you just as much excitement and joy, as this does for me….and may God Watch over you til you hit the big 100 (and beyond)!!!! :)

  739. Yes a Very Happy Birthday to You! 8)

  740. Inspirational write up. Cheers to life.

  741. Thank you for such a wonderful post. It never ceases to amaze me that the most simplest of things like doing something meaningful and reading and writing make the greatest of differences in our lives and in the lives of others! Happy belated and you’re not going anywhere with a jolly good habit like that! Asante( Swahili for thank you!)

  758. Happy Belated Birthday.Yours is an inspiring story, but you left out one factor—luck.When asking his father for advice upon college graduation, a son asked his father if he had any words of wisdom for him. The reply was “be lucky” You have been and I hope it continues to your replanning date.

  765. Happy birthday! What a great outlook on life and such an inspiration!

  766. Great blog post from a lady with a great attitude toward life. You pretty much get what you expect; if you are pessimistic or optimistic, you likely will be right. So, choosing optimism is definitely the better choice. Personally, I’d like to live long enough to see the 22nd century. It could happen…I’d only be 153 years old in 2100. The world God gave us is so beautiful; it would be a shame to not have enough time to fully appreciate it.

  767. Belated Birthday Wishes. I love your outlook towards life. Must change mine I already feel old now. :)

  768. I pray that life is healthy and great for you in 2013!
