I had some great photos of some bridges I wanted to share with you. You can see them by clicking on my side bar. Today I wanted to do Bridges a little different. See, today is a very bittersweet day for me. Two years ago, my Baby Girl, age 10 was diagnosed with cancer.

I have been thinking a lot about that day. I have been thinking how far we have come since that awful day. Our world changed that day. It has never been the same. I started thinking about how 2 years ago I stood with everything familiar around me. I knew my way around. I was in control. In an instant, the ground dropped from under me.

God, Family, Friends, this Blog, all of it has acted as a bridge over the last 2 years. We have slowly, precariously, made our way across this deep chasam and this year we have found ourselves on the other side, entering new land. We have taken off running, exploring, and remembering.

I want to take this time to share with you a video I made, celebrating the last two years and how much Baby Girl has overcome. I want to remember Jan, who has faced the same cancer as Baby Girl, and for staying a true friend to both of us. I look to her for guidance more than anyone every knows. She is my sister across the pond. This is for my grandfather who we lost 19 yrs ago. This is for my Uncle Ed, diagnosed 5 years ago and whom we lost a short season later. This is for Elena, Kristin, Sierra, Elizabeth, and all those who are still fighting this fight.

  8. Tall T,

    This is the most beautiful and touching video I’ve ever watched on a blog. It saddened me, it made me cry, yet it made me smile, it made me feel proud, it inspired me, it gave me hope that the human spirit can fight back, overcome and survive – and then go forward in such a brave way to help others.

    I am so proud of baby Girl that I cannot put it into words. In fact. I’m so proud of you ALL.

    Thank you for for thinking of me as your “sister across the pond” – you have no idea how proud that makes me feel.

    Blessings to your grandfather and Uncle Ed, may they RIP. Blessings also to Elena, Kristin, Sierra, Elizabeth, and all those who are still fighting this fight too – and to the families and friends who are fighting with them.

    I am humbled by this post.

    I’m going to look at the photos now – but the video and post will eclipse even the most stunning of photos.

    Love to you ALL – and especially Baby Girl today.
