The Happy Family Blog Break


Happy family., originally uploaded by krybot.


I'm taking a break this week from the Bookcase Tour but I think you'll forgive me when I tell you why....

Today, instead of photographing for the post, I went along with The Man to see his doctor, to get great news...

Today, eleven and a half months after it began, The Man's treatment came to a successful end. I am so immensely proud of him. All through the aggressive treatment he remained positive and the most supportive and loving husband and dad.

We are both so thankful to all the wonderful people, both near and far, who helped us over the last year, who showered us with love and support, with kind words and healing prayers. Each and every kind gesture will remain in our hearts forever.

The day he was diagnosed, his doctor told us to put life on hold for six months. That six months became almost twelve, but today, we've been able to hit that pause button once again and start back with our lives.

So tonight, instead of blogging, it's an early night to bed, a night of cuddles and of listening to my two favourite people breathe while they sleep in peace.
