In my YOUTH, I came from a family that never had much except closeness & love. Mom & Dad worked hard but never got paid much. We always had a roof over our heads and food on the table. After college, it was the baby years where I always had a job, but raising & educating kids gets very expensive. Those MIDDLE AGE years were very special watching my children grow into young adults. Now I've reached the GOLDEN YEARS, a time when money should be no issue and where you have nothing to do and all day to do it. A time where hobbies become your "job". It's called the journey of life but for many life is not fair. Some earn more money, others suffer hardships(loss of a job or a soulmate) while others have their bodies fail. It's only when you get "old" that you understand that YOUTH is wasted on the YOUNG.
On Monday I start a new journey...Radiation treatments(43) for prostate cancer. My doctors believe it was discovered in the initial stages and hasn't spread. Since I have long family history, I have been getting tested every year once I reached 50. I have no symptoms so the only way the cancer was discovered is thru my PSA blood tests. FOX 8 will be doing a story regarding the PSA testing, what the number means, who should get tested and what happens if you don't get treated. Please be watching for it. I'll keep you up on how I'm doing and I'm confident I'll have many years left ahead. I'm planning on doing some trips and special events in the coming years since you don't know when tomorrow will never come.
