Where a year will take us! I know my posts have been less and less frequent as time has passed. Forgive us, we've been busy helping Megs battle the beast.
At this Christmas Eve we are preparing to celebrate at home together! Truly that is gift enough in itself. I am keenly respectful how precious it is. We've mourned the loss of so many, many children this past year. Our family has also lost Ed's father in the spring and on December 22nd, my dearest Gramps passed away.
As Megs moves closer towards her final planned round of chemo in late January, we cautiously hopeful that she can move away from battling and begin the long, slow journey of healing. As a family, we need to move toward healing together.
Again, we are humbled by the outpouring of support we have received from complete strangers. Folks have taken it upon themselves to make our burden lighter this season. I still don't know quite how to adequately express our appreciation. I doubt I ever will.
Instead, I'll do something better: share pictures of the shy gal who motivates us all to work harder; live more full; love more sincerely... Merry Christmas!
