|Caleb even slept through boisterous conversations, when his vivacious brother jumped in the car, after school.|
It's very difficult during times like this, because with this new phase of chemo, we don't know what to expect. It's a relief that my mom is a nurse and can offer insight, but we all hurt together. So often, we cherish the moments with our loved ones who are closest to us. Sometimes they go so above and beyond "the call of duty", they deserve special recognition. I'm referring to my parents.
The lyrics of "Wind Beneath My Wings" comes to mind. My mom went to nursing school right before the "empty nest", and I still remember that song being played at her nursing graduation. She definitely helps keep Caleb & I soaring.
|"Did you ever know that you're my hero and
everything I would like to be?"|
"It might've appeared to go unnoticed, but I've got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know the truth, of course I know it... I would be nothing without you. "

|The "Griller Extraordinaire"! Thanks for cooking for all the boy's friends! My friends call my dad "Dandy Don" for a reason too. Thank you for your love and magic energy.|
