There is nothing I am more thankful for than moments like this.
Snuggled deep under the covers with my peeps. Cozy and warm.
Breathing in the love.
That's where I want to be.
November started off wonderfully. With plenty of family time. And moments like these.
And then my world turned upside down.
My mom was admitted to the hospital on Thursday. After just having gallstones removed a few days prior, it was discovered that the real problem causing her excruciating pain is a tumor blocking her intestines. The cancer she's been fighting for years has now created a major problem. And the doctors cannot remove it. There are no definite answers. There is no prescribed course of action. It is a day by day waiting game.
Fortunately, each day has brought a tiny glimmer of hope. Today the fight was back in her voice. She quizzed me to make sure I knew how to make our special family stuffing recipe. And we laughed.
So, on this Thanksgiving eve, while I am thankful that I will share a moment like this tomorrow morning...
I am most thankful for the laughter that I shared with my mom today.
