A Naked Thanks

A few months ago now I was flicking channels and came to rest on Adam Hills Tonight 2 words caught my attention “Naked Tuesday” he was talking to a guy called Craig who had been diagnosed with terminal cancer  and who had started taking photos of himself on “Naked Tuesday”

I watched in awe, here was a man who appeared not only unbroken by cancer but seemed to be laughing in the face of it who was living by his own mantra of “Make the rest of your life the best of your life”

As someone who lost their father young to cancer and watched him fight everyday for 5 years to stay with us, to live I felt pulled to this man.

I looked up his facebook page and added him on twitter and so I came to know Craig….Craig the “fighter”, Craig the humble and Craig who perseveres with my crappy jokes.

So today on this thursday I am thankful for the amazingness that is Craig and that he shows me that life is worth fighting for.

I am also thankful for social media and all the people it has brought into my life.

Linking up with the lovely Rhianna at A Parenting Life for Thankful Thursday.
