As many of you know, if you have been following my blog, I recently found out I had stage 3c malignant melanoma.I have since had 2 surgeries to remove the cancer and am cancer free but because it went into lymph node I am going for cancer treatments.
Ever since I found this out it has changed my life.It is amazing that one phone call can turn your world upside down.
All my life I hid from pictures,I never let anyone take them of me.After several deaths in my family,even before this phone call,it got me thinking how my loved ones were gone and I had no pictures of me with them to remember them by.Now I have a totally different view on life and realize that life is precious, and that we are not promised tomorrow . I made up my mind that I was going to take pics with loved ones even if it made me uncomfortable, because I want to have those memories.
So today I went to father -daughter breakfast with my dad .His church put on a breakfast for all the fathers and their daughters along with several other churches that joined in on this event.It was a very nice turn out.It really made my dad so happy,and it was nice spending time with him and my two sister in laws Kari and Lisa that my dad also invited to the breakfast as well.I didn’t take a ton of pics but have two to share . I am glad that I was feeling better and was able to make it. It was very enjoyable .
If I had anything to say about this experience I would tell people to reach out to your loved ones, let them know you love them, take pics often,stay in touch and build memories.You just never know what tomorrow can bring.Don’t put off tomorrow what you can do today. Reach out and love them while you can.
