We've all been sick - and while it was horrible, and we were tired, cranky, and sore from coughing so hard - there were a couple of good things to hold onto.
First, is James' lovely aunt who brought us soup, muffins, and Popsicles. She is so kind - and lives an hour up island from us. Her warm gesture means so much! Thanks Aunty!
Second is my friend Kathryn bringing us matzah ball soup, a baguette and a bottled smoothie. She's the nicest person on the planet, I swear. She also has three young children, works, runs her kids to after-school events, is in the middle of moving, and volunteers at the school - and makes soup for us. Wow.
Last is watching Aidan stomp over to the Kleenex box with wild determination, yank out a tissue, blow his nose and throw the used tissue on the floor with disgust, "take that you bad, bad boogie!"
Now I'm just very, very grateful that we're near the end of it...
