One Rawkin’ Reaction

At a 40th birthday bash last night, Mark and I ran into an acquaintance from our early days of parenting.

She asked about JustOneMoreBook! and I told her we’d replaced it with a breast cancer blog.

“When did you have that?!” was her shocked response.

That beautiful, knee-jerk, past-tense reaction swelled me with glee. And it’s been echoing in my head ever since.

Cancer in the past tense.
The distant past tense.

Like a bad cold
or a fall
or a notch on my belt.

Thank you, Ashley. For being the first.
