Rad onc appt today. Not sure what to expect, but here I go!

Daughter spent the weekend with me and we laughed and hugged as if she were still a teenager and we were having a Mother/Daughter day like in the "good old days" as she refers to them. Hmmm mm..... She drove the five hours to tell me face to face that even though she is grown and I raised her to be independent she still needed her Mom as did my all my grandkids need their Grandma. She says everyone needs a soft place to land.....someone who will tell them when they are wrong even if they don't want to hear it and will still love them no matter what.

I am sharing this because sometimes things get heavy and you may start to wonder why (especially if you are older) you are going through all of this.
BECAUSE:
There is always someone who needs you if it is only the sound of your voice and the statement "sweetie, you really need to think this through".
Or a neighbor.....or a friend.......or spouse...or ...or..or who needs or wants the special that is YOU.....

New day, new attitude.

Thank you for posting this. Like Sephie, I don't have any children, but I do have a husband and I think his life would be changed, but not in a good way, if something happened to me. So, yes, we all need to remember that someone needs us!

So true we are all someone to somebody. We don't always know just how important we are to them. The older I get and the more I talk to people from my past, someone has said to me "remember when you did this or that for me". I never gave it any thought at the time. It obviously made a difference in thier life. How rewarding when the circle is completed and it comes back to you. Give your daughter big hugs and kisses, and most of all fight, fight for all your worth. Beat this disease and enjoy many more years with her.
