Bits of Brightness on the Bumpy Road
Addie’s Amazing Oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookies…yum!
The beautiful Bouquet of Daffodils from my coworkers…
The sweet message on the vase. I work with awesome people!
The beautiful hyacinths outside the lab…
see, there’s beauty even when I am about to get jabbed!
A close up of the hyacinths.
So on the way back from chemo, when Ashley was taking me home, we were talking about how I still haven’t had that Aha! moment where the world is supposed to be brighter, more alive, more urgent than it was before a life changing event such as the C-Monster. As I was posting these pictures, I realized that it might be because I have Aha! moments all the time – I am always very aware of the scents and sights and sounds around me. Maybe this isn’t a “life-changer” when your life is constantly changing. Maybe because I don’t often take the small things for granted, that I am not amazed by them now, because they always thrill me. Maybe the C-Monster is teaching me that I don’t give myself enough credit for who I already am.
