Maeve and The Boys

dscn0185My husband took this picture yesterday at his sisters 50th birthday party.  I love this photo.  It looks like the cover to an album; either her solo project or with “the boys”.  I love where the sun cuts down at an angle leaving Maeve and her attitude in the shadows.

I have been wracking my brain for a few days about what to write and feeling guilty about not writing.  I have decided that the Lenten obligation of a daily blog isn’t going to work.  If my life bores me, I can only imagine how it is to my readers.  But I realized that it is a good thing that my life is boring.  It means that after the year and a half whirlwind of doctors appointment, diagnosis, surgeries and chemotherapy, my life has finally settled back into the mundane drudgery of the every-day.  Although this doesn’t always make for interesting writing, it sure feels a lot more comforting to me as I face each uneventful day.

So I will continue to write the blog…but not every day like I promised…I have never actually followed through on any Lenten promise anyway, why start now?

    I agree, that is an awesome photograph. It deserves to be blown up, 8×10, and framed in your house before it gets on a record cover. She has no idea how very cool she is, just like her mother.

    Fran, What a thrill it was seeing you yesterday, and now to see my boys as the backup for this new rock group.

    No one can make me laugh the way you can; and seeing you so well and full of life yesterday made it clear. Cancer is your story, your challenge, and your past. I believe you are just going to go on among the survivors; with even more joy, more compassion, more goodness, and more grand times ahead than you ever could have imagined. Your children are kind, loving and secure. Your husband is a prince among men, and I’m in love with him.

    To life, kid. Happy St. Patrick’s Day.

    Love, Don
