Just this recent Sunday, my wife and I noticed this lady coming out of the driver’s side of a nice car, well made-up, sporting attire, bounce in her stride.
But for the knitted headwear covering a balded head, we did not guess that she is recovering from cancer.
Her will to live out her life is inspiring. My wife and I could not help but affirm the notion that a cheerful outlook and an appropriate fighting spirit would positively affect the outcome of any given trial.
The Bible confirms as much in Proverbs 18:14:
“A man’s spirit sustains him in sickness, but a crushed spirit who can bear?”

I like Bette Midler’s ‘The Rose’, but did not pay attention to the lyrics until recently.
These lyrics are worth pondering over..
The heart that’s afraid of trying never learns to dance
The dream that’s afraid of waking never takes a chance
The one who’s afraid of being taken never learns to give
The soul afraid of dying never learns to live
