Birthdays are always special but it becomes especially so in the face of a horrible illness such as cancer.
Today, my Hodgegirl turned 17! And she looks like the happiest girl on earth…despite the odds, another year has been conquered. Moreover, her dad and brothers flew halfway across the world to be with us for the holidays.
This year, we are not doing wrapped presents yet we have the best present no money can buy and that is the glow of happiness on Ri as we celebrate her birthday and Christ’s, who is the reason of the season.
Happy birthday, Hodgegirl and Merry Christmas to all!!!
