Some day we will all find what we are looking for. Or maybe we won’t. Maybe we will find something much greater than that. – Anonymous
Let the ruins come to life. – Joel Houston
Two and a half years ago, I stared at a computer screen and gripped a scrap piece of paper in my hands.
Should I? Shouldn’t I?
Does it even matter?
I was 31;
three years into my relationship with leukemia,
and not too many more into my relationship with motherhood.
I struggled to juggle
kids who were no longer toddlers, not quite school-aged children,
with a job I mostly loved, sometimes hated.
I’d graduated from one phase of life
– here is where we have children –
to one I never thought I’d see
– here is where we try to keep me alive so I can raise those children.
