Merry Christmas

This year has been hard. Indescribably hard. Cancer entered our family, and although Ellie was the one diagnosed, I assure you that each one of us has been deeply affected. Ellie's body has been tortured by medicine; the same medicine that is also healing her. She is strong. So, so strong. As I tell her every day, "We will get through this together." Right now, our family is weak, but we are not broken. We are ok, but we will get better.
Eva, Nora and Ellie bring so much joy to our family. They will grow to be loving, caring and empathetic by bearing witness to the people that have been loving, caring and empathetic to them. Ellie is being healed, completely and permanently. It is difficult decision to remain positive, to look for the good. We fail a lot. It is difficult to laugh when all we want to do is cry. But still, we try.
And so, this Christmas season, we will choose to reflect on all of the love and support that our family has received this year. We are grateful for many things, but especially one another. We look forward to 2017 with hope, and more laughter.
From our family to yours, Merry Christmas!
