Today I am so happy to be alive. 5 years ago I was doubting whether I would live through cancer or not. Five years ago I had just had my 2nd cancer surgery – a terrible chest surgery – and I was at one of the lowest points of my life.
Today my son (5 1/2 years old) graduated from preschool.
I know, this seems like no big deal to many. I mean, it’s not like college graduation – 4 years of actually trying. To us, it is a big deal.
He has struggled the last 2 years and I am so proud of the hard work he has done. I have felt some days like neither he nor I would get through this challenge.
The best part is he was proud of himself today too. That is something we have been working on and I feel like it is getting better.
I will cherish today. Hold it close to my heart. Use it to remind myself that we CAN move forward and we CAN have the good moments.
