What to do when: You have terminal cancer

You make a plan.

Ours is to go home. We have loved our time in Indiana and we will sorely miss the friends we have made here, but our priorities have shifted. We need to be at home, with our families, treasuring the time we have left - however long it is.

So, in the middle of cancer treatments, goodbye lunches, and normal life, we are packing up our house so it can be rented out, and getting ready to drive across the country. With a two-year-old and a four-year-old.
On second thought, maybe this isn't such a good idea...

I am writing you an email right now. I drove by your house only to turn around and drive right back home. It is not the first time I do that. I am perceived as a "strong" woman but I am not... I love you, Bonnie. I wish I could see you before you head out. I will miss you. I wish I could write something meaningful...I just want you to know I have thought of you all day and my thoughts and prayers will continue to be with you.
Thank you for being my friends, my visiting teacher, my Primary teaching companion for..a few weeks. I am going back to my email to you now...hugs.

Now, aren't you glad you have a smart phone? Those apps will distract the little ones! Xoxo
