Narrowing the Distance

Imagine my delight this morning when I saw “this” as my son, Ben’s, new facebook status!

It is so comforting to know that my boy – so far away from home – is thought of to such a degree!

This was a note from the students on his “floor” at Lakehead University where is is a Resident Assistant.

Ben, my older boy, has almost finished his second year in Thunder Bay.  I am proud of him.  He has shown tenacity, courage, and resilience in the face of adversity.  I’m not sure that I would have lasted the year having to face the challenges he faced.  Not only is he courageous, he is a good person and clearly thought of quite highly.

This – this morning – was a “shot in the arm”!

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.
