The Lucky One

This is not the blog I had intended to post today. In fact I wasn't going to post anything because I was so busy last night.

But then I read this blog post [bolderinboulder.blogspot.com] from Bolder on his blogger blog and I wanted to share that with you.

I've posted this photo before but I wanted to share it again. You see, I am one of the lucky ones.

My grandfather is a cancer survivor. My brother-in-law is a cancer survivor. If we had lost Jack, we also would not have two very special cuties - Madison & Max. Both of them were caught early. My grandfather has passed his 10 year mark. Jack's will be in another year. When I see this photo, it reminds me of how lucky I am that I got to take this photo. There have been other families that aren't so lucky.

Please stop by Bolder's post. And if you have any ideas for him, you can leave him a message here on his photoblog [photoblog.com] account or you can leave a message with me and I will see that he gets it.

Thank you. :)

It's a little fuzzy, I know. But I love how happy my grandfather is in this shot trying to wrangle Max. :)
