Reese, Eli, and I were out and about this morning, having coffee with friends and making a quick library stop.  On the way to the library, we drove past a park with kids all over the place, so on the way back we decided to check it out.  The kids ran to play, and I sat down to knit. 

It was such a weird feeling, sitting in a park watching the kids play with other moms and little kids all around.  What a flashback to our days in Wisconsin, when the kids were younger, before cancer was on my radar.  I miss those days when the biggest worry was losing five pounds or how was I going to get Reese to sleep already.  As Uncle Rico says, "Don't you wish you could go back?"

Since going back isn't an option, forward we go.  One day at a time, holding on to faith.  Enjoying the park days and school days and coffee days and knitting days.  Lots of hugs and laughter.  I think that's the best anyone can do.


  1. Loved having coffee this morning. You are special and Eli and Reese are total cuties.

  2. Ahh, this made me smile so big tonight. I terribly miss those days but I am so happy that you are finding them in Dallas too.
