Daily Diary ~ My Dad got hit by a bus

Yeah you read that title right……

My dad got hit by a bus this week.

OK That is not something I ever thought I would type or ever wanted to type but it is true. My Dad was sitting at an intersection and a bus rear-ended him.

Thankfully my Dad was driving their Subaru and it took the hit really well. The bus ended up with more damage than the Subaru.

My Dad is sore but doing great. He shook it off and went about his business getting things done.

This is twice this week that I have been reminded how short life can be.

Earlier this week we talked about taking time to see friends and how much cancer sucks. Then I get the call that my Dad has been hit by a bus.

Two reminders in a week that every day is a new day to live life to the fullest.

What can we do today to live life to the fullest?…

Daily Diary ~ Taking time to see friends

Cancer sucks!

I don’t know how else to start this diary post other than cancer sucks!

Last night we had dinner with a great friend who we sadly do not get to see as often as we would like. Life seems to step in and our lives move at such a fast pace that getting together is a process.

When we do finally get to see each other it is amazing, wonderful, and last night a bit heart breaking.

My friend is a breast cancer survivor. She is in her mid 30′s, has a 4 year old daughter and is truly a rock star in my eyes.

When she was diagnosed with breast cancer she attacked it just like she attacks life.

She did not let it get her down or change her. She simply attacked it. She never missed a day of work even with chemo. She embraced losing her hair and said that it was part of the process.

She truly embodies everything I hope to be and lives her life to the fullest on a daily basis.

dont walk behind me

During dinner last night she casually mentions to me that she would like me to not freak out but they found cancer in her liver and she is back in treatments….
