Cancer is not a battle to be won
or lost it's a call to live.
So, the question is, "How do I want to
live this life?" by, Joyce Bailey
Joyce L. Bailey was born on October 4, 1948. She grew up in a small town in Boston, Massachusetts. From day one she was a fiery strong willed little girl, climbing trees, picking on her little brother and rushing home for dinner when the street lights came on. When she turned 18years old she left the only home she ever knew, moved to New York City and became an American Airline flight attendant. She was determined to experience the world! Years passed and her next pursuit was to become a mother. I recall my mother saying, "the happiest days of my life were being pregnant with all 4 of you". My mom adored life! Every moment; the highs and the lows, in the end all those tiny gifts helped her appreciate the beauty of life on earth.
Joycee, Moma, Nini; I marvel at the strength of will and determination that kept you going. The enormity of raising 4 children with grace while fighting this vicious disease. I am humbled by your character. I am grateful that you were my example in life. Your legacy of courage, faith, positivity, bravery, focus and perseverance will live in your children, your grandchildren, your family and your friends forever.
