Clearing my mind

Well I am back from Alberta.
It was so very hard to say goodbye to those sweet little faces.
My last week there I was bombarded with so much horrible news.
Very dear friends' 3 year old son , Max, has been diagnosed with liver cancer.
As we speak he is undergoing mounds of chemo.
He is envisioning a shark whose favourite food is tumour and name is Kimo.
Go Kimo Go!
Then just 2 weeks ago more friends' son and daughter in law lost their twins in her 6th month.
It really hit home to Iain and I because we know how high risk a twin pregnancy is.
I just hugged our Riley and Miles and weeped.
More dear friends who have been together for almost 30 years are splitting up!
I got an email from my sister that my father has been diagnosed with a brain tumour with the primary in his lung
I have been estranged from my father for over 30 years but he is a human being and I do feel for him.
I'm not sure how much more I can handle.
I am not a religious person by any stretch but please keep all these people in your thoughts -- however you do that!

Here are those sweet faces that make life worth while.

These pictures are so cute, Susan. I hope you have looked after yourself throughout all of this sadness. Sorry we couldn't meet today. I think I am here tomorrow afternoon so if you are out and about drop in. I'll get the key back to you over the weekend, otherwise. Hugs, Deb
