It's been quite the strange year, not even counting the pandemic. I was diagnosed in January of this year, have gone through a couple surgeries (they got it and the pathology reports came back negative!!), 11 rounds of chemo (1 more left!!), and finally feel like I can see the finish line. My wife has been right by my side since the very beginning, holding my hand and supporting me through the last 8 months, I really don't know where I would be without her love and support. So, my question is, what sort of "thank you" gifts have you or someone you loved received or given, even though I know that NOTHING could express the love that I have for that woman and her strength that she has shown during this crazy time.
Thanks for any ideas!
First of all, congratulations on getting close to the finish line! Keep your eye on the prize!
Second, never forget the love and support your wife has given you, no matter how many years go by. Whatever shit life hands you, as long as you two are still close, you can get through anything. Say “thank you” and say it often. When you're finished with chemo, you can say it in the form of flowers, dinner dates, baking her favorite cookies, a trip to Turks and Caicos (after the pandemic is under control, of course), a gift card to her favorite store, etc. As I'm sure she would tell you, the biggest gift you can give her is just being alive and present so you two can enjoy the rest of your life together. Live fully and embrace each day!
