Lisa... would have been her 50th birthday.

If you're new to my blog you can read about Lisa
I miss her everyday. 
There's so many things I'd like to tell her.
She was my travel companion, my fashion critic, and the best listener I've ever had.
I miss our sunny days in Florida.
I miss the snowy days spent in Chicago. I miss it all.

But I remain grateful for the time I spent with her.
Cancer isn't picky, it takes the kindest, the cruelest, the richest, and the poorest. 
Don't try to reason with it, I've tried that a few times. No luck.
Cancer doesn't seem to care who you are, or what you've done.
It just is.


“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.” 
~Steve Jobs
