It's sad to watch someone close deteriorate with illness. But you know, she still smiles every day. How you live your life is all about attitude.
Steve, you just brought chills down my back. The C word hits me and hearts at the deepiest level. I know how that goes. You can take time off, you can morn for years; however, at the end of the day there is still an empty void. When I lost my mom we left for the weekend to see some friends down in Kentucky and then came back to go to school Monday morning.
Attitude and smiling is what life is about. Best of luck and I wish her a very quality rest of life.
