The cancer psychologist we saw this week said that part of the journey of cancer is not making your whole life about cancer. Tonight we had an opportunity to do just that. If I had not started chemo this week, I bet our evening would have looked the exact same.
We had some dear friends from grad school move to Texas last week (yay!) and we had them over for Fourth of July. We grilled out, made too much food, and got to laugh a lot. We talked about cancer some, but it wasn’t the focus of the evening. Noah had an awesome time and it turns out he loves watermelon. I’m so thankful for the friendships we have both near and far during this journey and the ability to be normal, even if just for an evening.
