We were back in Boston this weekend...for fun!
Yep, no appointments, no doctors just me and my crew enjoying the city that will forever hold a special place in my heart for being an important part of my healing💕🙏💕
As we walked the streets together, I was filled with gratitude towards this city, it’s people, and for how it was such an important role in my healing and our families healing. I will forever be grateful for my time here.
Yet it is time for our family to circle back to this beautiful city and see new sites and make new memories here. To watch them enjoy this space without the cloud of cancer over us was the best site for me to see.
And last night on our way home from exploring the North End when our youngest asked for a piggy back ride I had him hop on. And as I carried him around, skipping at times along the side walks because of the joy I felt in my heart, I reflected back to the last time I gave him a piggy back in Boston. It was when we all walked together to my last treatment together. (Yes, I gave him a piggy back on my way to my last treatment - it was pure adrenaline friends)
Yet now we have a new piggy back ride memory we made together and one that doesn’t involve cancer. Yesterday was about our family in Boston exploring this beautiful city and all it has to offer besides my corner of healing.
I share this with you today in case you too have a place that’s your Boston. Where cancer, or something else, became the central part of your memories there.
I invite you to join me to...
Pause. Breathe. Pray.
And when the time is right for you, I offer for you to consider circling back. May you choose to make new memories, not to negate the old but to take another step forwards. May we look at the past...
“Not as a anchor the drags us but as a rudder that guides us.” - Warren Wiersbe
May we keep moving forwards beside the ones we love.
With love and hope,
