Control...

We cannot control everything.  I have fully embraced that - especially with our diagnosis.  I have accepted that this road, while not ideal, is ours to travel.

But... it has also forced a wake-up call of sorts upon me.  While that one huge part of our life is out of our hands, I can hold the reins in other aspects of the world I call my own.

I can choose to be bitter.  I can choose to be angry.  I can choose to let the emptiness consume me...

or...

I can choose to enjoy all the other amazingly wonderful people and things and places that I encounter every day.  Simply, I can choose to smile.
