For one minute, walk outside, stand there, in silence, look up at the sky and contemplate how amazing life is.

The Best Christmas Present
On Thursday 13 November I received the best Christmas present ever. It was early, of course, too early to wrap in decorative paper and red ribbon but that didn't alter the worth of it. Actually the gift was too precious to wrap, it was the sort that needed to be shouted about from hilltops and roofs, unwrapped and open to view. Would you like to know what my gift was? Okay, I'll reveal all.
As I said, the date was 13 November but it certainly wasn't an unlucky day. It was the day Joe had the ALL CLEAR from the medics. There was no sign of the cancer that had troubled him for a whole year. That is certainly something to celebrate?
There are still a few things to be sorted but when we're told that the cancer had disappeared anything else can be taken in a stride.
He looks well, is eating well, has put on a little weight, and is able to go out more ... and is rather jubilant about his new status. And why not?
Our blogging friends have been so supportive throughout Joe and I thought we should impart the good news - most of all he wants to thank you all for your good wishes and sympathetic messages.
