Still one of my most favorite photos of my youngest daughter (now 21). Christmas time was always a bit stressful trying to coordinate events and money to make sure family had memorable events.
This year however, it is the most challenging for me. My father was diagnosed with cancer yesterday. We have been in and out of the hospital for several weeks and now there is a definitive answer. Treatment is to be determined but will start soon. My moms mental faculties have always been on a decline but even more so than ever. She is now saying things take place that are not true. Or re-writing the past.
Sometimes I wish, just a little bit of me, wish, I could go back in time knowing what I know now and re-do some of the other Christmas holidays.
Photos are the reflections I get and will suffice for now.
