Some times, I sit at my computer, trying to figure out what to say on our blog. Writing this certainly forces me to stop and think about Terence’s cancer, what it has done to his/our life and family.
No matter what we do it doesn't go away, certainly not any farther away than a minute. There are just some days where we don’t want to confront the big issues — the Cancer with a capital “C.” No, some days, we just want to have a normal day (although I am not sure what ‘normal’ is any more) —dealing with the usual stuff that makes up life. I guess this is just a long way of saying that I don’t really have anything more profound on my mind today. It’s just another day.
Except, of course, it’s not. And we all know why. There are good days and bad days and the days that fall in between, but there are no more “just-another-days.”
We escape for a minute, but it never, ever, goes away. Those are the times we choose to think on the good things. And we break into spontaneous hugs,winks and then we can't help but laugh.
