I will write more later. I just had to mention this today.
Ever since my father was diagnosed with the Gliobastoma brain cancer, I’ve felt so alone and frightened. My dad was my rock for the longest time, and having to go into this cancer battle with him sans mom was surly gonna kill me too.
But guess what I received this in the mail today:
It’s a card. A collection of love notes gathered by a handful of bloggers. Some I didn’t even know read my blog.
Once reading it, I cried like a pussy. Tears of partial joy, partial sadness, and partial gratitude.
So to all of those who wrote a letter in this book, “thank you” is not powerful enough to express my gratitude and respect I have towards you. And if you didn’t sign the card, but sent love notes my way (whether it be through mail, email, text, or even twitter), I also thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I brought the book to my dad’s and shared it with him. It moved him immensely. I will keep the book at his house throughout all of this. A good luck charm, of sorts.
I know, this post ain’t snarky or silly. And there isnt a hint of food in here. Just love.
And that love will help my dad and I through.
Phsssh….. Cancer is no match for love (and laughter, of course).
PS: Since most of the bloggers who contributed to this book I doubt read my blog these days, will some other blogger who is feeling especially un-lazy thank them and let them know I received it? I would email all of them to thank them properly, but time is precious these days.
