" . . . a principle with promise, . . . this word of wisdom . . . walking in obedience . . . shall receive health . . . wisdom . . . great treasures of knowledge . . . run and not be weary . . . walk and not faint . . ." Doctrine and Covenants 89:1-21
|March is the month to remember all Marie Curie did to lay the groundwork to combat cancer. She gave her life because of her radium research. People wear a yellow daffodil here in England for cancer awareness month and to honor her.|
On a serious note, the reason I have posted parts of the Word of Wisdom scripture is because March was the month we received the news my mother had lung cancer. It was only a few months later when she died. I have also lost a step-father to emphysema and a grandfather and an uncle to lung cancer. I wonder how much of that second smoke I breathed in the first 18 years of my life will contribute to problems for me?
Thank you to all my family members who have quit smoking. I'm so proud of them and encourage everyone to give it up. Life is too precious to shorten it in any way. In many cases we can't control how long we live, but smoking is one way to toss out some of that allocated life time.
