Have you read my previous post?
I wanted to share with you the moment when I decided to attend the anniversary.
I have a friend who has a wonderful 10-year-old son. He got cancer when he was 3 years old and for many months it looked that he won't survive. Luckily we have good hospitals and they were able to cure him. He is completely healthy now. But all the drugs left him with some minor learning difficulties.
He has a silly teacher whose hobby is to make a special list: she sorts all her 25 pupils according to the average grades in the school year. This perfect little boy always comes in the last third of the list.
I heard his mom encourage him before one of the tests: "You are competing only with yourself, not with the others."
I though to myself - if this brave little boy has the courage to go to the class every single day, I can have the courage to attend the anniversary once a year.
What made me happy today: fresh cherries picked up by my mom.
