I am thankful everyday. Are you? Dead cat bounce?

in #aliveandthriving2 months ago


Short story time.

I am thankful everyday. Some times you encounter people that make you pause. I know I am thankful for the fact that my wife has 8 years a life after her first cancer diagnosis. I hate to say it, and only saying to emphasise this story, but it becomes common and sometimes you forget the struggle her struggle.

But yesterday at work I had a customer come in that lived out of town, she had all kinds of error messages on the dash of her vehicle. She did not know what to. We are fully booked at work. I offered her if she could leave the vehicle we would do our best to get it looked at in-between scheduled appointments. She waited and within 3 hours we had her on the road. But that is not the point of this story.

As she was checking in, I noticed on the right side of her chest, that she had a band-aid. In the exact spot that my wife has her port - port for putting in cancer treatments or medication so an IV does not have to be used.

So me being me I had to ask her. The customer is 10 years into cancer survival. 10 fracking years. No more treatments but she needs potassium often to keep her alive. She was happy as can be. Even with all she had going on with the car and waiting around. Happy as can be.

She understands the value of being alive.

It was another perspective slap. No matter how bad you think you got it, someone else always got it worse.

It added to my thankfulness of life everyday.

Markets - Bitcoin and Hive.

Are we seeing a slight recovery or are we seeing a dead cat bounce?

What are your thoughts?



That is what the last month looked like for both.
