It's been about a year. Not a year since we found out about Lucy's diagnosis, but a year since we really started to think something was wrong. It would be another week before I made a call to the pediatrician and our lives were forever changed.
It would be easy to get lost in the fog. The fog of grief, of dispair, of what ifs and why mes. But Lucy reminds us that joy is an option. That joy is a choice. It's a choice we make each and every day. A choice to not dwell in the fog, but instead, to live in the sunlight. To turn our face upward and rejoice in hope.
Day 89: Easter Sunday. A true reason to rejoice. THE reason to rejoice.
Day 89 Bonus: Someone surprised us by filling the front yard with colorful eggs for Lucy. She was pretty excited about it. :)
Day 90: Andy dog and Lucy. The two reasons that I send many of my emails after 8pm.
Day 91: Our light. Lucy proudly showed off her faux hawk - brought to you by the orange she ate for lunch and used as hair gel. Mama tried to wash it, but that only made it worse. LOL.
Day 92: Our view of the world renowned Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia. A view we wish we never had to see, of a place we will be forever grateful for.
Day 93: Went searching for my old copy of A Wrinkle in Time while at my parent's house in NJ, and I was a bit taken back by how creepy the cover is in comparison to the bright and lively tv commercials.
Day 94: A walk outside in the fresh afternoon seaside air is always a perfect way to spend a few hours with Lucy.
Day 95: Sometimes, you just have to buy the pretty produce.
See you next week!
