My mom feels well enough to cook (woo hoo!) and, even though it's just going to be us and possibly a few friends dropping by, she only knows how to cook for an army... so we are going to have quite a feast (and for a week to come too).
I think the fact that she's been so sick this year (two types of cancer, diabetes) has made me realize just how fragile the future really is. So, everyone, enjoy the here and now. Enjoy your family, enjoy your day.
It's good to be alive.
