There is so much about this from the shock of hearing the words from the doctors that your wife has brain cancer, to sitting there in a dream-like state not wanting it to be real, to crying every day for two weeks straight, because you realize that all you want is your best friend, wife and life companion to live a long and full life.

Yes, you are going to have bad moments, but don’t dwell there. Live in the good ones, because there are so many beautiful moments worth living in that are just precious.
