Looking for the good in a situation. Positive thinking. Changing what "is" into what "can be."

A cancer survivor, Rishell Graves, saw this piece of art and wrote:


"The waves are washing over me.

At first, they were so big,

they pushed me below the surface 

where I fought to survive.

As time passed, the waves grew smaller and

came less often. I found a way to move with 

the current, to keep my head above the water.

Now I am learning to float, to swim.

Each new day brings me

closer to dry land."
