must watch

have you seen this video? Totally gone viral. It talks about melanoma cancer. The exact cancer that took my mom after a 3 year battle, when I was 11. I highly recommend watching it, and I also highly recommend wearing sun screen. I loose it every time the video gets to the part with the wife that holds the picture up, you'll see, and you'll understand why it hits so close to home.
My mom, holding me when I was newborn. 
Oh how I miss her.

Thank you so much for the comment you left on my blog. It actually really helped. I think this is something I will struggle with until that someone arrives, but it was nice to hear your dad's thoughts and how you felt about it as a child. I am so sorry you lost your mom. I just watched that video yesterday and the part where she held up the photo really hit me hard too...
Thank you again for sharing with me. It means a lot.
