A Year

Its the sound of  birds. 

The talk of hockey playoffs.

An afternoon sun that actually warms my back.

My body remembers the horror and fear.

A year ago we found out my dad had 9 months to live.

The day we were told we took this picture.

We took it because we thought it would be the last.

2 weeks later I was diagnosed with Cancer too.

They were dark days.  The darkest.

But the darkest days come before the brightest dawn.

365 days later my dad is cancer free.

It is a miracle noone ever thought possible.

I am cancer free.

Our family has grown by 2.

Thank God for the dawn.
