SeashellsPosted: December 3, 2011
I made this card quite some time ago and posted it to my dad who has been undergoing cancer treatment. I didn’t send the card alone; it was part of a package of bits and pieces that I thought my parents would like. To keep the cost down I sent the package by surface mail, thinking that it might take 6 weeks perhaps. My parents received it a few days ago, 10 weeks after I posted it. As my dad reads this blog I wanted to post him a card he hadn’t already seen. There was a card for my mother in there too but it has been so long that I can’t remember which one it was!
The news has been good since I sent that card, the last two cycles of my father’s chemotherapy have been cancelled because of the success of the treatments he has had since August. He will start a new type of treatment in February.
My parents live in Australia as I did for the first 35 years of my life and the weather is warming up for them. So although a card with seashells on it might seem out of place for those of us seeing snow outside, it is not for Aussies looking forward to their summer holidays.
