Nothing Else Matters














Alone - we really are alone in this world. My wife and I are going through something that has and will forever change our lives. If you are a reader of this blog you know that my wonderful wife was diagnosed with breast cancer about a month ago.
Our friends have been wonderful with their well wishes and offers of support. But, when it comes down to it, when the night roles in and it's just us laying there trying to sleep, we are alone, together but alone.
But for us, there is strength in "Us". Together we can conquer and get through anything. When we are together, nothing else matters.
It's funny that about two weeks before we found out the news of her cancer, she came home and said that I had to hear this song by Metallica. She said it could be our song. We don't have a song, or anything like that. Our wedding was a Las Vegas, drive-thru wedding and I never really proposed. But from the day I saw her across crowded night club I fell for her. Now flash forward almost 12 years since that vision and all the love we have is all we really need to get through this.
With us, it seems, nothing else matters.

I am an incredibly cynical person with no religious belief. I believe that her strength combined with my love and a team of the best doctors on the east coast will get her through this battle and on the road to recovery.

So as I sit and write this, Metallica is playing in the background and I keep thinking that as long as she is in my life, nothing else matters.

Nothing Else Matters
So close, no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
and nothing else matters

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
and nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
and nothing else matters

never cared for what they do
never cared for what they know
but I know

So close, no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
and nothing else matters

never cared for what they do
never cared for what they know
but I know

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us, something new
Open mind for a different view
and nothing else matters

never cared for what they say
never cared for games they play
never cared for what they do
never cared for what they know
and I know

So close, no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
No, nothing else matters

I wish I had the love and support from a lover/partner it would have made the journey that I am on a little more tolerable. I have had a few good friends and the love and support from My family yet in retrospect it is not the same. It is wonderful that you have each other during this journey and I truly hope that when it is all over that you will have a full and complete recovery with no chance of the mutant cells ever coming back. Please feel free to contact Me should you wish any sup[p[ort or just want to talk or vent. I totally understand each step you have taken and will take and want you to know i am here for you Both should you need a friend. I know We have never spoken before, yet through this journey we are linked. Btw, You are a fantastic photographer!

In Love and Health... Diva.. aka Jazmine
