Wow, some blog! Are you underwhelmed? I know I am. This will be my third blog entry for the whole year of 2009. Whoopee. Notice the lack of exclamation points?
I guess in my own defense, I am still in recovery. Since February, I have been operated on, had chemo, had radiation, lost a significant amount of hair, been scared to death and/or tearful. I've lost feeling in the end joint of my fingers, and of my toes. I've certainly had plenty to blog about, but haven't.
My family isn't even celebrating Thanksgiving today, we celebrated it last Sunday, the day that all of my immediate family could get together and share time and a meal together. It was precious.
Today, I've had time to be introspective. I've always been thankful for my family, but this year I am more so. I'm thankful for the extra time I have been granted to be with my family, to talk to them, to hug them, to just be together - with or without us talking. I've accepted that I might never have the time to accomplish all my goals, even the ones I've had since I was a teenager. That what I might be remembered for, in the abstract, is that I was important in the lives of my children. That my accomplishment will live on in the lives of the children in my children's lives.
