If You Must Know…

my mom (in white) and my siblings (and me!) laughing about something – as we usually do when we’re all together, posing for a pic

… and I know you do, or at least, if you are anything like me, then I know you do. My last post was a bit vague, and I apologize for that. I’m not sure how to write about what I’ve been dealing with this past week. Thankfully, my sister is good with words and is able to write about it.

You can read about it at her blog here

So yeah, cancer – the big “C” word. It’s a bad word and I really never thought I’d have to deal with it. It was one of those things that other people deal with, but not my family. I suppose I’ve been wrong before.

I haven’t done much of anything except sit at the hospital this past week with my mom and my sister. It’s been a long and stressful week – more so for my mom than me, but still, stressful. I did take some time today to check out an art festival, do some shopping for jewelry supplies online and watch Bridge to Tarabithia (not a good one to watch if you are already emotional – I should have known, the book made me cry like a baby when I was elementary school). It was nice to do those things, but I felt badly that I was not with my mom. I think I’ll head back up to the hospital in the morning because I’d rather be there, reading a magazine with my mom than at home making jewelry.

I have my priorities.
