Week 1

Don't mess with velcro.

Within every large family there is sure to be a variety of characters.  We have the needy one, the dramatic one, the strong one, the funny one, the angry one, the sensitive one- and so on.  We do not always get along but this week we stand together to form the most powerful force around our center.  We band together to fight not only for her but with our mother.

Listen up cancer, you have NO chance! Get the hell out!!  You know the saying "don't mess with Texas?" Well, the Velcro Family is Texas.  We are large and in charge.  We don't fight alone.  You mess with one of us you get the wrath of us all. This is not our mother's battle, this is our fight.

Our mother is strong.  She is a fighter but no one is invisible.  Fear will take over. Exhaustion will subside but for her we will take over.  With each individual strength that we hold we can take over bits and pieces of her pain. The angry one will fight the cancer.  The sensitive one will hold her hand. The needy one will, well will probably need a hand too.  The dramatic one will cause such a spectacle that it will scare the cancer to the moon. The funny one will cure us all through infectious laughter. The strong one will hold us all together when we want to crack. This is what we do. Individually we are all hot messes but together we are a force to be reckoned with.

We are the Velcro family.  We stick together.
