Aimee’s father had cancer, her father-in-law had an accident and now, one of the worst things imaginable to any parent has happened.
Her baby girl has been diagnosed with kidney cancer.
And my heart aches for her.
When Eliot’s Eat suggested that we send out support for Aimee by sending her virtual flowers I wanted to participate. I went around my garden and shot pictures of all my bleeding heart plants, because truly my heart bleeds for Aimee and what she is going through.
As I was photographing my flowers I caught this industrial little ant climbing out from the flower petals, he reminded me that even when our heart bleeds there is a way up and out: hope, positive thoughts and old fashioned ‘never give up-ness’.
Although flowers can’t fix everything, knowing that people care, can bring a little ray of sunshine into an otherwise dismal situation.
Aimee all my positive thoughts are with you and your baby girl.
