The day after my last post, I found myself feeling much better. There's just something therapeutic about writing. It releases all the pent up feelings...letting them flow freely over the internet. And to my surprise, some very special blogging "friends" left wonderful, encouraging, and thoughtful replies.
My dad is still on a roller coaster ride with his health. Not much has changed, he continues to fight. But it's a new day, he's still with us and I am grateful that the initial 1 year diagnosis has turned into 5+ years. We've been blessed. We've been given more time with him than we were initially expecting. So even though things are tough, we still cling to the hope of a Miracle & know that God has the final say.
My son is doing better. He's had some struggles to overcome but he did in fact learn a valuable lesson that will benefit him in the long wrong. Everything happens for a reason, even if we can't see it while we're going through it. Yes...it was a hard week, but the sun continues to shine & the raw emotions settle down. Each day brings renewed hope.
I just want to thank you for being a part of my life, for accepting me, caring and taking the time to leave comments. It means a lot...you make a difference in my day!
