“We don’t know how strong we are until being strong is the only choice we have.”

I read this quote tonight. A woman I don’t know said it in an article about her journey battling breast cancer.

It really rang true for me and I had to write it down!

I have always viewed myself as a strong person. Always able to stand on my own two feet. But never in my wildest dreams did I think I could be this strong.

I have to now be strong for me. For Ruby. For my boys. For people around me.

Today I took my boys to the movies and lunch and shopping. It was nice to do things ‘normal’. We all had nice fun chats and the usual banter, at times annoying ( ha ha!), back and forth.

And we also talked about Ruby and her health and how we feel.

The boys loved their day. They listened. They are good boys. They too are strong. The only choice they have.

Ed stayed home with Ruby and built a Den. They both went to sleep in it too. In the photo below Ruby’s eyes are closed as the light is hurting her eyes. A side effect this time around with the chemo (together with morning nausea and sore lips). Ugh!

She is strong. Ed is strong. Their only choice.
