Slice of Life | Arriving


We arrived in Toronto tonight.

It has been a while since I have been in a big city. As we drove along the streets from the Billy Bishop Airport to the Lodge, I was a true country girl with thoughts like, "Oh! Folks do walk on the streets at night. And they even walk alone!" It was only 7:00.

As the taxi pulled up in front of the lodge, I knew I was in a whole new world.

I read the words on the sign... 

Princes Maragert Cancer Centre Lodge

I got a little teary when we -
rang the the doorbell
read the signs along the hallway
spoke to the security guard
met the coordinator
signed the papers to stay here and to be Jim's caretaker
moved into our room
went to the lunch room

We are really here. Jim has cancer.

But we are here together.

Thank You, God.
