I told my daughter that my ovarian cancer had returned - all she wants is time

My daughter has once again taught me a valuable lesson - the most important thing that we can give our children is ourselves.

I told my daughter that the cancer had returned. It was a difficult but necessary conversation. She was sad because she thought it meant that I would be spending lots of time in bed and less time with her. It made me thing that really the only thing we can truly offer of ourselves is our time. That is most valuable thing we have to give.
