Some of you might know that my daughter has been fighting cancer since the early months of 2011 – multiple surgeries and serial sessions of chemotherapy and reconstruction and diet changes and untold emotional challenges. Now she is back to rebuilding her body and her life. Through all of this as a father you are helpless yet admire the tenacity and strength of your children. She is truly amazing.
She has taken to the Friday blog of philosophy although she will not follow my alliteration. Here is v1.2 of her Friday Philosophy. I hope you enjoy.

It was in the depths of winter that I discovered within me, there lay an invincible summer.
Never give up… don’t ever give up.
The time is now.
