Another Beautiful Day
Each day is such a beautiful gift. As a family living with cancer, we see this gift more clearly. I treasure a cloudy morning in August. I treasure salmonberry blossoms covered in dew. I treasure one last day to play with my best friend's children (as she packs) before they move to teach overseas. I treasure another opportunity to gracefully decline time at Chuck E. Cheese. I treasure pajamas. I treasure my ten month old toddling around the house pulling bookmarks out of all our chapter books. I treasure my five year old pulling his eye lashes out so he can make more wishes. I treasure my oldest daughter spending every spare moment with her nose in chapter books. I treasure my partner advocating for his health and asking many questions on the telephone with his doctors. I treasure to ability to type on the computer in the middle of it all. Each day brings such delights when we open our eyes and hearts to them.
