It's all about the time I have with you

There are times when we do ordinary little things as people and our minds start to drift. We get taken to different places in our own personal lives and we either use that as an escape or use it as a reality check.

I had one of those moments today.

As I was mowing the grass, I was listening to music and then a song came on to make me think about the one person in this world I couldn't live without. This happens a lot with music.  I love music.  Music makes me think.  I had not heard this song in a long time but I remembered that I actually liked the song.  What struck me was it was a cover band that was singing, and they had slowed the song down to a more mellow style.  The words to the song made more sense to me now as to before when I  was mimicking the song and singing along with it.

I started tearing up as the song went on.  Never before had I LISTENED to the song.  Every line in this song represents who I want to be for T.

And it made me think of this.  Fuck this Cancer shit.  I don't even feel like I have Brain Cancer.  But the reality of my life is that I DO have Brain Cancer.  And the reality of it is that with my kind of Brain Cancer I may go any day.  It's the truth.  I probably won't, but hell you never know.

So I will walk as many miles as I need to for T and the 4 C's to make sure I live as long as I can until I fall down at that door.

Living with Brain Cancer is my Reality Check.
