My kids, my life, my need for a sanity check.

C A N C E R ....

My 3 yo is driving me insane.

My laundry is everywhere.

My kitchen is a mess.

My van is a few steps away from us walking.

My living room had a hurricane pass through.

My Baby won't let me put her down.

My dog is chewing everything in sight.

My friend has a sister dying from CANCER. Makes you stop and think. I hope that one day my kids or grandkids will ask me what Cancer was all about. I will tell them it is having to say goodbye way too early, before you are ready. Before they are ready. It's having a Dad ask you permission to stop fighting. You want to say "No, keep fighting" but you can't because you know he can't. Hug your loved ones tight. You never know when you have to say goodbye. And it sucks.

I love you Dad!

    That definitely puts things in perspective, doesn't it. *sigh*
