Christmas, 2014 – Naples, Florida

robbie hendricks

I visit my parents every year for Christmas in Naples, and this year was no different…except for one thing.  About 2 weeks prior to my scheduled trip to Naples, we found that my father had been diagnosed with T-cell lymphona…a very aggressive, and serious cancer.  Determined not to let the devastating news put a damper on celebrating a wonderful Christmas, I flew out to Florida early (thank you entrepreneurship), and spent nearly a full 2 weeks with my family.  It was, undoubtedly, the best and most celebrated Christmas of our lives.  While my father started chemotherapy in January (and as I write this many months later, it has been much more challenging than I could have imagined), we celebrated properly.  Though a bittersweet holiday, I can say this confidently:  I had never appreciated a Christmas with my family more than I did in Christmas, 2014.
