Today's post has nothing to do with clothes, but everything to do with life.
My dad passed away exactly a year ago yesterday after a courageous fight with male breast cancer. He was a brilliant, funny and very stubborn man. He didn't let anything get in his way of living the way he wanted to...including cancer. Even while on chemo, he dug up his garden, hiked, cut down tree branches, shoveled snow, walked 4 miles every day and drove to Quebec (much to our dismay!). I remember getting aggravated with him because I worried he would get hurt and set himself back....but he never did. He took charge of his life, and in retrospect, I admire him tremendously for his strength and determination to live life to its fullest.
My daughter Alyssa has her own blog "Lyss Takes Flight" about her life, every day happenings, and raw emotions. Yesterday she posted about her "Grampy", my dad. If you've ever lost someone special in your life, the words will resonate.
You can follow Alyssa at HERE. Warning though, she doesn't hold back so if profanity bothers you this blog might not be your cup of tea.
