Just a minute

Jon’s new posted photos are lovely as ever. If that is even the word. Striking maybe. Adjective day! Everyone who views them- post your most descriptive adjective. Let’s see who can get it perfect..Jon always does. Anyway, just a few sentences about those photos. Mostly it is just me playing with Clay. Which is great…but the rest of that day and for the next three I was barely able to get out of bed. I tried.So it is nice to see pics of me being a “good mom”. Being sick can really make you feel like you are not contributing enough..for me. Three of the photos centered around a conversation that Kelly mentioned in his blog. It is equally hard to not feel like you have become a spectator to life when you are faced with the mortality/morbidity of illness. I may die/will die so I am no longer here. It is a feeling. Not one that I ever had prior. I had the Irene Cara ..I’m gonna live forever… syndrome before. Now I feel like I might as well smoke and party.F* it. But really these thoughts are fleeting. I can not/do not spend my time absorbed in that level of negativity. I am not Little Miss Sunshine either. But I wear pragmatism pretty well. In any case, thanks for reading and commenting. Post your adjectives about Jon’s photos. One word per person..after we get t shirts I will send one to the winner. But if I have to look the word up in the dictionary(Rob!) I am disqualifying it. I love you all. Andrea

    a·live (É™-lÄ«v’)
    1) Having life; living. See synonyms at living.
    2) In existence or operation; active: keep your hopes alive.
    3) Full of living or moving things; abounding: a pool alive with trout.
    4) Full of activity or animation; lively: a face alive with mischief.

    In today’s post you said, “I may die/will die so I am no longer here. It is a feeling.” But in the pictures you are alive and living life, the love, the joy and the pain. Keep fighting to live. And we’ll keep fighting along side you. We’re praying for you.
