Short and Sweet…!

Yep, it’s WONDERFUL news!  My dad is CANCER-FREE!!!

Just as I was texting my sister to see if she had heard anything, my phone rang. At 3:28 my world stood still… until I heard his voice. Even before he said it, I knew the news was good just by the tone of his voice.

And when we hung up, I let myself cry. The good kind of cry though. There’s nothing like a good happy cry!

And I let myself listen to the Christmas music station. (I know mom, it’s not Thanksgiving yet but it was just a song or maybe two!)

And now I’m drinking a glass of wine…

And homework? Who cares about homework…

And I’m really happy!

And yes dad….


With a little help from our friends of course…

I must say, we have quite a few angels up in heaven and here on earth who have been with us these past few months. Thank you for all your prayers and good thoughts. It means so much and we are forever grateful.

Dad, I hope you’re enjoying a good dinner and have a good night’s sleep.  You SO deserve it!

I love you so much!

    Hurray!!! I’m so happy for all of you. It reminds me of getting that call about my own dad’s remission. I also remember that relieved cry so well. Happy tears are THE BEST! Indulge yourself!!!
