Watching your children suffer through a stomach bug is never ever fun or easy, but this time around, I am a little more grateful...if they have to suffer from this illness, I am so glad that they are safe within our cluttered up middle class rented home full of family and food and comfort...

Can you imagine? Can you believe that there are thousands of people out there, right now, dealing with this level of squalor?
It boggles the mind.
And reminds me to be epically grateful.
And to kiss my sweethearts and keep them close and to count my many many blessings at every chance I get.
It isn't something I think I will ever be able to take for granted.
