Friday's Letters - 25th July 2014



This Sunday is my Dad's 59th birthday.  Short of a miracle it'll be his last.  The emotions sit just out of sight but threaten to break at any moment.  I don't know how to celebrate this birthday without thinking of all the birthday's he'll miss.  What do you buy for a man with a terminal illness?  What material thing could make anything better...

As hard as it will be, this Sunday my family and I will celebrate with my Dad.  
We'll eat cake and drink wine.
We'll be grateful to wake up surrounded by family and great friends.
We'll spend time together.
We'll tell inappropriate jokes and laugh loudly.
We'll hug and hold hands and tell everyone how much we truly love them.

Love is the greatest gift of all.
