Today I put aside all the worry, anger, fear, and sadness felt in the last few weeks to celebrate our son Kellen. Tomorrow is his first birthday. Today we had his birthday party with friends and family. He has been such a shining light throughout this whole cancer experience and of course in the last year. Watching him grow and explore his world gives me such hope and a sense of peace. No matter what is going on around us, he is such a very bright and special little person whose existence gives me the desire to be the best mom I can be for him. Each little moment he does something that makes me smile, is a gift. I am greatful for the moments of lightness I feel thanks to my little man.
