What/who changed my life and why
The day my son died of ewing sarcoma, he was only 21, a kind gentle soul, wonderful loving son, he had just started his career in the Royal Navy, life was just beginning for him,then he got ill, and got diagnosed, he had terminal cancer, he had a 5x2cm tumour in his lower spine, and it was a Ewing Sarcoma, the most aggressive form of cancer out there, and there was no cure then in 1987 when my son was first diagnoised, but my son fourght bravely, going through the most horrendous chemotherapy with always a smile on his face, the day he died, was the day that my family was blown apart, we had always done everything as a close and loving family, and now gordon had died, and we didnt know how to cope with this loss, it never crossed our minds that our child would die before us, and when Gordon did die a large part of my heart died along with him, people say that time is a great healer, we personally do not find this, we find that we miss our son more and more as the years have gone by, we missed out seeing falling in love, getting married, we missed out on our future grandchildren, and we miss our son`s presence on a daily basis, our family is not complete, it change our lives very much in that we now do not take life for granted, we thank god for every new day we have together, and enjoy the beauty of this world, life can go by so quickly, and all of us should at least one day per week just go out into the country and enjoy nature at its most wonderful, and relax and enjoy the day, nature has its own way of soothing the troubled mind and heart, and giving inner peace to those who need it in their lives, we find now that just to sit together on a bench, out in the countryside, or sit by he ocean, and listen to all the sounds of nature around us, is truly magical, all this now gives my husband and i inner peace, this is what changed my life and how i have tried to cope since loosing my young son.i can still have bad and very bad days, were i miss my son so much, but i have a wonderful supportive family who help me get through these days, and for that i am a very thankful woman...
