I am thankful ...

That, right now, my heart doesn't have a hole that will never heal.

That, right now, not only can I pretend to be normal, I can actually feel like everything is normal.

That, right now, I can get so mad at LW for doing 2 year old type things, I want to strangle her.

That, right now, her "adventure" is just that. Yes, she went through cancer. And The Boy went through intussusception, and the Princess has her things and Bo Peep has hers ... and that's just life.

That, right now, there are changes in my life. And they're all good.

That, right now ... I will set six places at the table: one for The Husband, one for me, and one each for my four children. And then I will set a place for whomever else is joining us this year.

But there are no empty places. Anyone not here, is simply not here.

I am thankful.
