Welcome to my 2nd blog. As most of you know I was diagnosed with myeloma (bone marrow cancer) in July 2008. After 18 months, lots of therapy and a stem cell transplant the myeloma has come back, we are fighting this time with the same confidence as last time, so with your prayers, thoughts and support hopefully we can win again.

Just a Thought

I friend recently told me about a sign he saw outside a Church:

'Yesterday is the past,
Tomorrow is the future, and
Today is the present - a gift from God'

How many of us spend too much time worrying about something that we have done and wishing we could turn the clock back and do it differently, or spend hours planning what we are going to do tomorrow, or the next day, or next week - when we don't really know what tomorrow is going to throw at us. This, quite often, gives us very little time to enjoy the present - the things that we actually have some control over.

So when you wake up in the morning say to yourself - "This is the first day of the rest of my life, I am going to make the most of it." Enjoy the day, with all of it's pleasures & opportunities, and take things slowly - make the most of the present - that gift from God.


  1. Great post Ivan! I think for me cancer (MM) has been a grace card that has allowed me to drop everything and re-evaluate where I spend my time and where I should pour my passions!

    I look forward to following your second round of domination!



  2. I do not even know the way I finished up right here, but
    I believed this submit was good. I don't recognise who you are but
    certainly you're going to a famous blogger in
    the event you aren't already. Cheers!
