A year ago, I had sent my son off to Europe and missed him terribly.
I think it was the Starbucks app of the week that was a picture a day app. I downloaded it, because;
1) it was free
2) I was thinking about documenting how much I missed my son
So, I took the selfie… and time flowed and I stuck to it and yesterday I got a notice that I had taken 365 photos.
One year, one insane year.
A son sent abroad at a very young age and being diagnosed with cancer. Not really sure which was hardest at the inception.
I missed my son terribly and was so happy when I reunited with him.
And hearing you have cancer sucks, sucks, sucks… and somehow it infiltrates everything.
But I missed my son and that was the hardest thing ever, and yes.. in a way, it was harder than being told one has cancer.
But the cancer things has its own craziness, craziness that makes everything outside the norm seem so much scarier.
So here is that one year of selfies, and as I sit here trying to figure out what all to tell my oncologist when I call him tomorrow, I think I look so much happier now than I did when I missed my son so much!
