I am thankful for so many things this year, but mostly I am thankful that we are here, celebrating Thanksgiving.

This year has been incredible and crazy. When Mollie was diagnosed with leukemia, my top 5 priorities pulled way ahead of the other priorities on the list. I am so thankful to my friends and family for recognizing this and not putting pressure on us.

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I like the food and flavors, the decorations, the warmth. But mostly I just enjoy spending time with family and having no agenda. We don't have to go anywhere. We are just going to enjoy the day.

what were your top 5?

Oops! I meant to say top "3":

Mollie's and Lucy's health and well-being

family health and togetherness

our marriage

Mollie's diagnosis really helped us realize the things that are truly important. Really. It's something I can't quite explain, but suddenly there were so many things that I was involved with or worried about that didn't REALLY matter.
