Yesterday I heard a song with the expression "forever and a day" in the lyrics. It's an expression that was originally coined by Shakespeare and it means "for a very long time". 

As I listened I began thinking how the meaning would change if you twisted the phrase to: "forever in a day"?

That's what some of the days seem like in this journey with Sully. I've done a good job trying to distract myself from the shadows of the Leukemia battle, but when things quiet down, when I am alone, and mostly at night it feels like forever has been squeezed into one single day. 

I sit alone and my mind plays a time lapse slideshow of every memory of my life, and then it flashes images of every imaginable uncertainty of the future. It seems like forever in one day.

All we have is the day; the moment that is right here in front of us. It's so important to find happiness in the simplicities of each day. I remind myself that there is always something to be grateful for, always something to appreciate and be positive about.

Sully was readmitted to the hospital to treat some side effects of the chemo. Hopefully we'll be out of here quickly. The peaks and valleys of cancer treatment are becoming more familiar, and we are just taking each day as it comes and trying to manage everything the best we can. His spirits are okay, we are all positive, and we will keep at it hoping for good news at each milestone of his treatment. 

We bend, but we don't break.
