Channel 4 KOMO, 11:00 news
Story about my siblings and I.
I do believe that they said they would do a shorter morning version of the story too. . So if you are interested get your DVR’s ready!
This weekend is a toughie for us, but we had fun activities planned. Jeremy is home and we went to Teatro ZinZanni last night, and we went to play with Toby today. I’m not sure I have the words or the feelings to describe the ache but we are together and are bonded in our hearts. We all know that a mother’s love is the fuel that enables a normal human to do the impossible.
A few years back. My mom got the kids together and told us that she had breast cancer. She said that she had a mammogram and that it was a small lump and they caught it early. We were horrified and scared. She told us that we could tell whomever we want – but we were only allowed to tell the happy version: that it was small, that they caught it early, that it wasn’t a big deal, and that she was fine! She didn’t want a fuss, and she would not allow any of us to feel sorry for her, or that she was some sad story. So what I’m getting at is that this Mother’s Day, we need to tell the happy story. That my mother loved her three children more than her heart would allow, that she is brave and strong, that her children have grown up perfect in their own way, and that her babies think she is the most amazing person… She is so much more… But I just can’t yet… Too hard…
There is a happy story and my mom would need to know that that is the one being told.

I want to sincerely wish all the mothers out there a wonderful Mother’s Day. You are a gift and are appreciated by more than just your children.
