It is rare that I write about my personal life in Canada but my thoughts are calling to be written.
Currently, my father is undergoing cancer treatment for Lymphoma. He is an exceptionally healthy man for his age and treatment will most likely be successful, but his experience on this Earth is limited.
Over the holidays I got to spend a few weeks with my father and siblings, (my mother passed on a few years ago), in my childhood home. I live on the other side of the country so do not get to visit nearly as often as I would like, so the time was enormously valuable. We had Christmas dinner together, enjoyed each others company, met with long time friends from Canada, and cleaned out old boxes of memories left in the attic.
