Today I wanted to share with you one of my favourite televisions shows ever.
The Big C.
In short The Big C follows the life of reserved, suburban wife and mother, Cathy Jamison, in the wake of he terminal cancer diagnosis. Cathy vows to dramatically shake up her life, and face her diagnosis while trying to find humour and happiness.
The characters became like friends to me. I laughed with them, I cried with them, and I was inspired by them.
Cathy Jamison is one incredible person, who inspired me so much with her wonderful words of wisdom.
I had a great time. I entered raffles, brought fairy floss and had a look at eveything that was there.
Although this fete was the same as last year. For me it was extremely different.
The difference you ask, is that last year we took our two foster boys aged four and six.
So last year, while we still entered raffles, brought fairy floss and had a look at everything. We also saw the boys faces light up after having them painted, we watched as they bounced as high as the could on the bouncy castle, and listened as the laughed the whole time they were on the catepiller ride.
So for me, today was a simple reminder that although sometimes it is hard work with children, there are always going to be things that are so much better with them.
