Those families braving this freezing beach together filled him with something. Usually he would fall into thinking their togetherness was contrived, that it would not last, that tomorrow they were doomed to the normality of separate lives. Like him. Separate, alone, lost.
But not today.
Today he found himself focusing on these families’ moments and felt warmth and love reaching out. Love for moments like this. Love building moments like this. Love merging these moments into hope. For them. For tomorrow.
Hugging these moments to him, he saw a glimmer of hope beyond this chemotherapy. Breath into a new life.
