“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.
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.
