    Re: What simple things make you happy?

    I was put on a marrow registry 17 years ago after my sister died of TTP a very very rare blood disease (not genetic). I was notified yesterday that I am a match to a 51 year old woman. I got so so excited. In filling out the questionnaire I remembered offer living sister had been diagnosed with a pt20210 gene that can make her or even me if I had the same gene prone to clotting. I wrote that down. I have tried to google whether pt20210 can donate marrow with effectively results for the recipient. I know that they will do stacks of tests. I just thought that there might be a quick answer.....but I just want to help her if I can to safety.

    I've received 1,005 likes. Why does that make me happy? I don't know, but it does.

    What makes me happy?
    Life does!!!
    I am a 3 time cancer survivor (age 10, brain tumor[Menegeoma], age 21 Uterine Cancer [discovered when I was 6 months pregnant], age 36 skin cancer), as well as a Service Connected Disabled Veteran (US Army 6 years). I currently am battling Fibromyalgia, Chronic Neuropathy, Arthritis and Compressed Disc's in my back (I am 3 inches shorter than I used to be). However despite my medical problems, I have succeeded in losing 130 pounds!!

    I Garden and give the produce to my local food bank, I do charity sewing (cancer hats, preemie onesies, homeless sleeping bag kits, blankets for Project Linus and much more), I am very active in the DAV (Disabled American Veterans) as well as performing Honor Guard duty for Military funerals along side of the VFW and American Legion.

    My life's motto is, Nothing is so bad, that you can not over come it. Laughter goes a long way to making yourself, and those around you feel better. I try and make the most out of every day. I have done so much in my life. I lived in Europe, I sang in a band, I play Cello and Bass, and you know, I don't think I would have done so much if I had not had cancer. My personal philosophy about life reflects the Tim McGraw song "Live like you're dying".

    I'll have what he's having, hahahahahaha!

    Simple things in general make me happy.
    Since I got divorced & have gotten older, I've found that appreciating the little things can make you immensly happy. The big things are a quick rush that fade in time, but appreciating the little simple things stays with you & grows your happiness.
    What some people may call boring, I call happiness in small things.
