I had a beautiful moment with my father today and thought I would share.
A little background – 2 months ago my dad was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer and it was completely out of the blue with no warnings. He has 2 tumors that are located in his frontal lobe which affect his personality and judgement. He is currently going through chemotherapy 7 days a week and radiation 5 days a week. He is beginning to lose some mobility and has started falling. My father has also been a strong man and has made this his idenity it’s been hard. Anyways, here’s the moment.
I was sitting talking to my dad about where he wants to stay before and after my wedding. He then looks at me and said ” Hey Rach, make sure you say goodbye before you leave” then I replied ” What do you mean?”. ” You know Rach, after the ceremony and reception, make sure you tell me goodbye”. It’s not a goodbye, it’s a see you later.
