Happy Birthday!

My neighbor has been taking the medicine for a year and a half for
cancer treatment. 
The summer was very hard for him, the only thing that tasted
like it should was popsicles and he lost a lot of weight.
Recently he told me that he would be
done the end of November and
had been pronounced cancer free.  He said
"After my last treatment I'm going to celebrate.  It's like
my birthday!"
I saw him outside today and wished him Happy Birthday.  He was thrilled
that anyone should remember that.
"I feel like I have a brand new life thanks to the Lord."

A second chance at life IS like a brand new life! How sweet of you to remember what he'd said.
