These small hours

"Little Wonders"
Rob Thomas

Let it go,
Let it roll right off your shoulder
Don't you know
The hardest part is over
Let it in,
Let your clarity define you
In the end
We will only just remember how it feels

Our lives are made
In these small hours
These little wonders,
These twists & turns of fate
Time falls away,
But these small hours,
These small hours still remain

Let it slide,
Let your troubles fall behind you
Let it shine
Until you feel it all around you
And i don't mind
If it's me you need to turn to
We'll get by,
It's the heart that really matters in the end

Our lives are made
In these small hours
These little wonders,
These twists & turns of fate
Time falls away,
But these small hours,
These small hours still remain

All of my regret
Will wash away some how
But i can not forget
The way i feel right now

In these small hours
These little wonders
These twists & turns of fate
These twists & turns of fate
Time falls away but these small hours
These small hours, still remain,
Still remain
These little wonders
These twists & turns of fate
Time falls away
But these small hours
These little wonders still remain

I am hopeful that the hardest part is over.

Preliminary reports are that the scans were clear.

As we walked down the long hall that bridges the clinic and hospital, I carried Little Warrior (it was a long day). I told her that we just got some very good news; did she understand what the doctor was saying?

Yes, she nodded. Cancer is over, she said with a serious look deep into my eyes.

That must have been a huge relief. We always have things to be grateful for, but I can't imagine a better news to get as Thanksgiving approaches.

Glad for you, LW and the family.

Children are very wise - and LW may be wiser than most. Over sounds so very, very good. Thank you for sharing.

I am so happy for you and your family, and especially LW. What a gift she is, and I am so glad you had good results today.

Thank you so much for traveling this road so publicly. These stories are so important for people to realize what it's like to go through something so potentially devastating, and to try and make a difference where possible.
