Cancer is a journey, but you walk the road alone. There are many places to stop along the way and get nourishment – you just have to be willing to take it. ~Emily Hollenberg
This past week has been a challenging one for my family. My father had surgery a week ago to have his right lung removed because of lung cancer. We traveled to Gainesville to visit him this week in the hospital. From Sunday to Wednesday, the boys and I hung out with him and my mom at the hospital. One of my little ones was very intent on being with my dad every minute he could. In this particular image, he’s pushing a chair down the hallway behind my dad in case he needs to sit and rest a bit on one of his first walks around the halls of the hospital. It’s such a sweet image to me. He was determined to be the one to push the chair for his Papa.
It’s not easy to see your parent hurting, helpless. It’s even more heart wrenching to see your child want to be there for your parent. Without question, seeing him push this chair is one of the sweetest things I’ve ever seen.
So, while this may not directly relate to our word for the week, this hallway was our street for a few days, and this image marks the beginning of my Dad’s journey to recovery.
Now please head over to see the wonderful Holly Bullock and here interpretation of this week’s theme HERE. Join us next week for “Lights at Night.”
