I've been strong for so long but can't seem to continue to find the strength.Maybe that's why I'm writing this. I guess I feel alone. According to the oncologist my mum has 6 months left. So I stand by trying to be stronger than ever as I watch cancer take my mum's life away. I guess I always thought she would get through it all. I guess I've always imagined her being at my wedding, holding my children one day and being with my beautiful family for many more years. She has so much to live for but the cancer is too powerful for her 50yr old body. I put in a brave face for everyone close to me. But the truth is part of me is breaking as each day and week passes. I feel time running away and I feel helpless and alone. I'm not ready to let her go. I just wish I could find strength from somewhere.
