"Only if you have been in the deepest valley, can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain."~Richard M Nixon
Eighteen months ago today,our journey with leukemia began.An entire year and a half.Feels like a lifetime ago and then,on some days,feels like only yesterday.I think I prefer to look at it as a lifetime ago,seems much more comfortable to put time and distance between us and most especially Zoey,and cancer.
Today I picked Zoey up at school.Her 3rd full week completed.I lifted that courageous, tiny body of her's from that darling train she rides in.I set her on the ground as she signed "sit" and pointed,which is her way of letting you know she wants to get from one place to another.I watched her roll and scoot her way to the other children,her new beautiful friends, that were running about the front of the school, as the other mom's and I stood and chatted.I looked at her backpack and her green stained hands from finger painting and I rejoiced.
Eighteen months later and the view,from my vantage, is truly magnificent.
