Oh how I missed you


Last Friday I had to take an unexpected trip to Sydney. {hence my absence here} I got the call at lunch time that my young cousin, whom has been fighting cancer, had been taken into intensive care. My brother and I booked flights and headed there as soon as we could. I'm not going to go into too much detail, but I don't think the outcome will be good. I have written about Scott here before. I am so glad we went to see him. It was a very emotional and stressful weekend, most of it was spent in at RPA, with the exception of a nice meal and drink here and there. And the added benefit of spending time with my family and being with both my brothers.

I can't tell you though, how much I missed my little ones. The longest time I have been away from them and hubs, I was so happy when we arrived home last night. Nothing beats being at home.

Scott turned eighteen yesterday, far to young to be going through something like this.

If you pray, could I ask you to spare one for him?

  12. oh jody, my heart is breaking for you and scott, and your entire family. I know how you are feeling, we lost our cousin last year to pancreatic cancer - he was 29. he suffered symptoms for nearly two years and continued to see his local doctors, until they finally got a second opinion that changed his and his family's life forever. 14mths later he lost his battle. scott and your family will be in my prayers. such a deeply emotional time for you all right now, big hugs xx

  14. Jeuz Jody, that brings tears to my eyes. I don't think it would matter how long you were away from your little ones, I think it's the reason you were away that would really hone home why you miss them so much. Reminding you to be grateful for them, which is clearly evident every day on your blog.
    thinking of you and your family.
