We Think We Have Time

Then and Now

The feature photo with this post is a collage of photos taken in the Easter School Holidays. It was March 2014. They are a profound set of images depicting our calm before the cancer storm. We looked to be and felt like your average family. We were relaxed, happy and at the beach every other day, enjoying our beautiful slice of heaven on earth.

We were also already living with cancer and didn’t know it yet. You can see a photo of Brendan playing with Tyra and Baden on the edge of the water – in it, he has a bandage around his right thigh. He thought it was a training injury. One year later, his tumour was diagnosed in that spot.
We didn’t see it coming.

‘The trouble is you think you have time.’ ~ Jack Kornfield.

The truth is we only have now. Now is our time. This has been my greatest lesson through the changes cancer has forced on my family. Now is the only time.

Brendan’s next consult with his medical team is coming up next week. We will get an update on his progress and treatment plan. Tyz & Bades will be with us. They are excited to meet the team keeping their dad alive – for the first time.

2 year later I’m happy to say post cancer diagnosis – along with all the changes because of it, some things remain the same. The beach is still our happy place xx
