MUNCIE , Ind., Feb. 21 (UPI) -- Country music star Rory Feek says he feels blessed because his cancer-stricken wife Joey lived to see their daughter Indiana celebrate her second birthday.
"For the most part, Indiana's big day was nothing but joy and more joy. She has a way of bringing even the most painful parts of life back into perspective. All day long (and for days before that) the mailman and the UPS and FedEx drivers kept knocking on the door – delivering more and more presents from strangers, family and friends... to Indiana in Indiana," Feek wrote in a lengthy post Friday that also documented how he and his dying wife spent together the night of the Grammy Awards and likely their last Valentine's Day.
"Please don't think that our life is all sappy tears and Hallmark-movie moments, like something out of a Nicholas Sparks novel, because it's not," Feek emphasized. "There is lots of real pain and hurt and frustration and fun and laughter... and most times, we just pinch ourselves because we feel so darn lucky and blessed. But the moments that seem to stand out -- the ones that matter and hurt the most of course -- have tears in them. And I can't help but share a few of the most powerful moments as they happen. To capture them. To remember."
Joey Feek, 40, has been in hospice care since late last year.
