Today was spent sorting through bags and bags of paperwork. I surrounded myself with a big glass of water, a clear recycling bag and season two of Six Feet Under. It was good to plod through all those receipts, bills, calendars, photos and recipes. I found a film review by my niece, a drawing by my nephew and a pattern for a cool scarf.
I had a good conversation with a friend this afternoon about my mom. Yes, she's back in the hospital. Yes, she's very sick. The good thing is that she's in a good hospital with a good doctor. We take it one moment at a time.
Now I'm off to make cookies. They make everyone smile and make the house smell yummy. While today's good things are a semi-organized box of paperwork, more medical care and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, it's all easier to manage knowing you're on this journey with me. It's cool that we're helping each other find the good things in our days.
So, how was today for you?
