It's Been One Year

and three days.

Last year, on November 2, 2010, I found out that the cancer had returned.

A lot has happened in the past year. Good and bad, much has happened. I want to write about it, but maybe not just now. It’s been a good years in many ways and a painful year in many ways.

I’ve made a lot of new friends, been some new places, had some adventures, and made some memories.

That’s what it’s all about for me now: making memories, especially for my son. Not that I expect to be going anytime soon; I don’t. But, I also know that life is uncertain and I try to do things with and for my son that will give him happy memories of me for whenever it is that I leave this earth.

I slept most of the day today while Energy Boy was at a friend’s house. I’m grateful for the rest; I must have needed it. So far, it’s been a quiet weekend, a nice weekend in which I’ve been online, heard about a friend who isn’t doing well, and rested.

I will write more about this past year sometime, I think. For now, it will suffice to say that I’ve grown and changed during the past year, and I’m happy with the memories we’ve made with EB.

EB . . . . he turns 10 years old soon. My boy is growing up. I’m not sad about that because I want to see him grow up, to change, to mature. I’ve loved all the stages he’s been through so far . . . and no matter what anyone says, I believe I’ll love all the stages yet to come . . . .

Yes, even the teen years, because every moment, every year, every memory with him and Absent Minded Professor is precious to me.

Life is precious, readers. Go make your own memories because we never know what the future holds.

God bless.
