OH MY FUCKING SHIT GOD
ALASDAIR MARRY ME
|—||C. S. Lewis, A Grief Observed (via fishingboatproceeds)|
today, my mother and I were talking about my photographs and she said,
"You should take a photograph of your father and I sometime. Y’know, before we start to look old and stupid."
and then she laughed.
this made me really happy, and I’ll tell you why.
I was expecting her to say, "before his cancer comes back" or "before it’s too late".
It’s the first time I’ve ever heard my mother express optimism about my dad’s condition. She always makes it sad, by talking about what little time he has left and whatnot.
But he’s been in remission for a while now, and all of the tests he’s taken recently have come back perfectly healthy, and I think my mom is starting to realize she doesn’t have to say goodbye yet.
I’m happy. I love my family.
