Yesterday I took a moment to offer my support to someone whose sister-in-law recently started treatment for breast cancer. Emma was standing by, ready to head home with me, and when we left she asked why the other lady was looking so sad.
I told her about the breast cancer and she said, "but you weren't that sad when you found out..."
And I thought to myself, "Holy Cow, did I pull that off well or what!!!!" because I sure remember myself as having been pretty sad when I was first diagnosed! (But I didn't want to freak out everyone so was trying to SEEM positive...)
