It started in May, when I was born too soon.
I started fighting, right from that first moment and I have never stopped.
We've had a lot of really bad news given to us, over the June long weekends.
While we always look for silver linings and we choose to chase the rainbows, life is hard.
Some days, it is too hard to stay strong.
Some days, we just want to crumple up and hide.
(But, we can't.)
The June long weekend brings many bad memories. The next couple of months bring even more.
This is our time when we are at our weakest.
This is the time when we are fighting the hardest.
These are our dark days.
We are slowly healing. We are slowly feeling stronger.
The heartache is starting to fade, but the memories are still crystal clear.

This was Dexter, six years ago. (video on facebook)
He was lying in hospital, having tests done, so the doctors could confirm whether he had cancer.
We are so lucky, because he was able to beat it, with the help of surgeries and chemotherapy. Dexter is now cancer clear. He is in remission.
We know of so many stories that did not end this way.
We remember all the kids.
We think of their families.
Much love and strength. xxx
