Happy 70th (breaking the silence)

I remember the day so well, it was january 2004, and i was one month away from delivering my first daughter. Mom had been taken to the hospital with severe pain and our minds were full of questions! It was my sister, rachel, who showed up and my door and broke the news, "the dr thinks her cancer is back and her body is full of it! He doesn't give her much time to livet" i still remember that feeling. The punch in the stomach, disbelief! The slow sinking in and the mind racing, racing to absorb all of the implications! I remember sitting w/ chris in mcdonalds and weeping at the thought of this child i was carrying never knowing her grandmother. I can hear chris comforting and reminding me that we don't know yet, to calm down. And then! O how i remember the phone call from my brother, mark, saying "it's not cancer!!!" and here she is today turning 70! Who am i to be so blessed?! I love
you mom!! (the pic is mom a "few" yrs ago :) )
