I love the app on Facebook called “On This Day”. It shows you what you have posted in the past on that very day over the years you’ve been on Facebook. I enjoy seeing my kids growing up, or reading silly comments that my now 8 year old made when she was little. I DON’T like it when posts like this show up:

Taken today. My dad is doing very well. He starts chemo and radiation in a week or so. Thank you all again for your thoughts and prayers.
Yes, it was a happy(ish) post at the time. Now I look at it and it makes me kinda angry. I’m grateful for the time we got after his surgery etc., but I still hold a big grudge against GBM. It’s hard to think that a little over 4 years ago the words Glioblastoma Multiforme weren’t even part of my vocabulary.
Life goes on…..
My mom is doing well. She is still serving a mission for her church. She extended it even longer. She enjoys being busy. She has decided to sell her house and move before her mission is over. I think the idea of going back to her house is depressing. She wants to start cleaning it out this weekend and asked me to come down and help her. So, a day of crying and boxing stuff up. Yeah for a fun weekend.
I still miss my dad. I still cry sometimes. Usually at odd moments that don’t have a huge amount of significance about anything. But like I have said before, it has gotten easier and doesn’t hurt the way it used to.
Spring is here finally and that makes me happy. The robins are back.
