Life’s Short – Live It – Let’s go to Orlando

The past year has been a roller-coaster ride for us. Since our daughter’s cancer diagnosis we’ve been through many highs and lows. We’ve met wonderful people who care for sick children and support their families, and we’ve met some great families who are on the same journey.

One thing that we have all learnt is ‘Life’s short – Live it’.

You never know what’s around the corner, fate will cast its spell and your life can change in an instant. We’ve always tried to build memories for our kids, and this past year has taught us that we need to continue to do so. Today we are in Orlando, Florida. A place that’s full of magical adventures and is an icon of family fun. It’s a long way from where we live in Australia, but it’s a place that my wife and I visited 15 years ago, before kids. We decided that our kids needed an adventure to outrank all previous adventures, and to hopefully help symbolise a new beginning and getting through the ordeal of the past year’s cancer journey.

These weeks in the land of fun will give us all amazing memories that we can relive for ever. As I said before, life is short and you never know what’s around the corner. We’d hate to be in a position to say ‘I wish we had done that while we had the chance.’

Here are some glimpses of what we’ll see and do while we are here.

This next part of our adventure is going to be an absolute highlight of this trip for me. I’m lost for words after watching these.
