Hi. Sadly this is the final day of #BlogFlash2012. These last thirty days have been a rollercoaster ride of creativity, emotion, and making some wonderful new friends, and we couldn’t have done it without our lovely and supportive host, Terri Long. Thank you Terri for making this possible.
The Day 30 final prompt is Winning. At first I was going to write a piece about hoping to win relief from my constant back pain (I’ve got surgery coming up next month), but after a great deal of thought, I decided to share a very special memory with you all. It’s a different take on winning – most people think of winning a race or a sports trophy, but there are many other types of winning and this special post describes one. I’m sure there are many people who can relate to this post in one way or another and so this is dedicated to everyone who has been there.

Waiting for the results were agonising. She felt a chill run through her as she thought of the prospect of more treatment or that most dreaded of words, ‘terminal’.
The phone rang and she grabbed it.
“Mrs Roker? I’ve got your scan results. I’m so pleased to tell you there’s no sign of the cancer. You’re now officially in remission!” Her smile was beauty personified.
