Zoltar speaks

You know, I read somewhere, that in America the equivalent of 2 classrooms full of children are diagnosed with cancer, every single day. The great Mother Nature casts her eyes, she points and declares, "I'll take that one and that one today". The following day, and the day after that, she hones in on child after child, classroom after classroom.

It is still hard to believe that my little man, at the age of ten, was diagnosed with cancer. I had fears of him being in the wrong place at the wrong time as a car sped down the street. Or maybe later in his years being arrested with a wee baggie of dope in his pocket and crossing the very unforgiving US cops. But not cancer.

Here he is shortly before diagnosis with Zoltar from the movie 'Big". I am not superstitious in any which way shape or form, but the fortune Scott received was eerie. We shrugged it off and walked away. Still, it is hard to look at this photograph and not feel a cold shiver run down my spine.

I'm glad you are not superstitious Steph - 'in any which way shape or form'. But perhaps it will make you think twice before getting any readings of any sort in the future!! It is not good to 'dabble' in such things. Scott does not have cancer because he had a bad reading or because someone (a plastic Zoltar)said he would have it - it's just a fact of life.
And he will come out of it eventually!
It is good to see photos of pre cancer Scott when he was looking so well.
lots of love mum/nana
