December has been the hardest month of the year. My father’s cancer returned. It moved to his brain, and treatment was stopped.
We celebrated his 67th birthday on December 13. We made it to Christmas and made it through New Years. We are taking it one day at a time, celebrating each day we have with him. I may not talk about it on my blog, and it may not show in my pictures, but it’s real. And I feel for every single person who has been there before me and every person who will be there after me. It’s that hardest thing to have to go through. I’ve never lost anyone in my family before and I feel like he’s too young to have to go through this.
Some of you have known what’s going on for a while, because we’ve talked about it before, and for those willing to listen, I am extremely grateful. Don’t worry, this won’t become a consistent subject on my blog. As much as it’s affecting my life, my blog is my escape and I certainly don’t want to bring anyone else down.
He’s still here, fighting to stay around as long as he can, and that’s all we can ask for as a family. I love my father with all my heart and appreciate everything he’s taught me. I am a daddy’s little girl.
Happy New Year!
PS: I’ll get back to non-sappy posts ASAP, no worries. Apologies for the sad news.
