Christmas Miracles

This Christmas had arrived as an unexpected, yet welcomed guest.

A cancer diagnosis and consequent chemo treatments had yanked the future from underneath my feet.  I had no more anticipated being an active participant in this season’s festivities than I had even being able to walk. Yet, Christmas came and so did all the regaling it ushered in with it.  It in itself was a gift that breathed in new hope for my family and I.   We trimmed the tree, we planted the nutcrackers en guard, and we feasted as a family – together.

I marveled at the miracles of Christmas, as I put the decorations away.

About inmycorner

This blog began as an opportunity to tell my Dad's stories. I sat with him and the computer and together we told stories. It was a wonderful way to get to know Dad. He was 9. He and Mom had a wonderful life together and since she passed away a year and a half before him - Dad was ready to join her. I no longer tell his stories but have found stories of my own. The impetus to resume this blog was the discovery that I had stage 4 ovarian cancer. Since blogging had been so therapeutic for my dad and I to get through our grief, I felt maybe this would be a good outlet to process my situation. I also hoped it may serve as an outreach to anyone else who is facing this very ominous journey. So far, so good.

    Christmas does have its miracles. I didn’t expect my parents to be with us this Christmas but they were. It was amazing to be with them.
