Waking Up

19346_1202288097446_6059319_nMy two babes before they were teens…hanging out at the creek on a sunny, winter day.

Having a child who just got cleared of cancer a few days before Thanksgiving gave us the opportunity to be really authentic with each other at events on both sides of the family.  There were honest conversations, there were speeches of gratitude, redemption and an exchange of healing words.  Because you never know when you will have the chance again to revise your words and create a different reality in your life.  Perhaps it takes everything to be nearly burned down to wake us up from living superficially.

Ava took this shot holding a piece of sea glass in Puget Sound, the day before we left to come home in summer, three days before we discovered her tumor.
