Perk # 68: Quality Time With My Girl

As a single parent, it is a rare luxury to find quality time to spend one-on-one with my three children.   Today, I am doing just that: spending the whole day with my daughter, Kaitlyn.   Kailtyn was kind enough to take a day off school to come visit me and escort me to one of my radiation appointments.   We are making the most of our time together in the city.  Last night we got dressed up, met some friends at a nice restaurant, and enjoyed a delicious seafood crepe with spinach salad.   We started today with a walk through Bowring Park, where we stopped to feed the ducks, and engage in a lively discussion on whether ducks actually have teeth. (Kaitlyn’s friend, Haley, insists that one smiled at her and she saw a distinct tooth!)

(Hmmmmm, it appears Haley was right)

Next it was off to Cora’s for a healthy brunch, followed by a mini shopping spree.   But alas, all good things must come to an end and by 5:00 I was abandoned for a “friend” who is a boy, but apparently not a “boyfriend”.

Tip:  When you are fighting the Big C, it is even more important than ever to make the most of your time with your loved ones.

  1. I also was a single Mom for many years and my children are still the most important part of my life. They have been so wonderful during this time, taking me to appointments and sitting with me through chemo. My daughter and I are very close and I feel very blessed. I am so glad you had such a wonderful day and hope you have many many more.

  2. Lovely picture Florence and that was a memorable day with your precious daughter. Another great perk, YOU GO GIRL 😉

    Thanks for being you and helping others while you are going through your treatments etc. You certainly are putting a SMILE on lots of faces.

  3. I’m happy for you.Knowing that you have your family with you gives immense courage to you.When I was a cancer patient I went through depression which made me morally down.Only my parents could heal my pain and they were the only ones who volunteered to do so.When I lost all my contacts with the friends I felt isolated.I’m happy your daughter is with you.
