One more year. Mark it down as a blessing and a privilege. Cancer is an evil disease which steals too many loved ones far too soon. It carves deep holes in hearts and families.
One more year. We will take it. And in our Papa's own words... he is "better than in a long time." Good riddance to the blasted doctors, lasers, knives, and chemicals. Hello to living and relishing precious family moments. We love you papa. Thanks for an amazing Christmas.
t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.
