Thankful again...

Yesterday, I was doctor's appointments that I have to go to now that I am out of treatment - the dentist, the dermatologist, the endo lady, etc. See all "those" appointments take a back seat to cancer, then, when you get a rest you get to do all of those again. I was feeling a bit sorry for myself as I am a tad tired of the doctor gig, but then I looked at my kids. We were in the field. Mason driving his truck - "four wheeling" - and Nolan the happy passenger. I thought about all the appointments I had to do just to get them. Seven years to have two kids. Endless amounts of money (and I had insurance to cover part of it); endless amount of time, but I got them - my two precious and perfect boys. Then I think about the last 10 months - endless amounts of time and effort for so many people, but I had yesterday and today, and probably tomorrow. Thank goodness I living here in a country with such great docs, great insurance, great family, and great friends that is tranquil enough to allow me to heal. Enjoy your weekend, Ang

Ain't it the truth? We are all so fortunate to be here today, with the friends and family and truly great lives that we all have (and sometimes--too easily--take for granted). Thanks to you for reminding us of what is important, babe. You're a tremendous friend.
