You're incredibly strong and I'm sorry to hear about all the hardship that your family has to go through- but at least you have each other and the days that you dedicate to small joys and escapes from the current reality.
I really admire you and wish my father thought a little more as you did.
Beautiful picture, by the way- it's hard not to feel happy and full of hope when you see something like that. =)

Thank you. My own father was really wonderful and for a long time I struggled with not measuring up to how awesome a father he was to my brother and I, but now that the kids are older, and themselves awesome, its really quite easy, and I feel that I'm really fitting into the roll. Of course all this will likely change by the teen years :P

And while I appreciate your assessment of my fortitude, I would only agree were it my own family. As this is her family, its easier to stay focused on helping and being strong for everyone without *actually* grieving. But thank you! Also - and I've been meaning to post this, but it really applies to you more than anyone else because you've been UNUSUALLY PROLIFIC (hooray!) - I have been reading posts - nearly all of them (though I think I'm behind just a little) and I can't wait to sit at my own computer (and not on my wife's teeny netbook) and respond to them all. Also, you're really cool - but more of that on your own blog later!
