Confidence and courage grow as we focus on the things within our
control... I cannot change the fact that I have cancer. It is out of my control.
But I do control my attitude and my determination to never give up.
I will live with gratitude, thankful for all the blessings that I have
been given. Attitude, effort, persistence, and gratitude are always
within my control, and so I focus on them. How long I will live is
outside my control, and so I do not worry about it. Each day I have
is a wonderful gift."
