bright side?

Will has been sick for the past two weeks.
First it was meningitis, then pneumonia...
It's been awful.

But on the bright side...

We usually go to Sun Valley the week after Christmas. Traditionally it's an action packed week of skiing, dinners out, seeing friends... It's a whirlwind.

This year, with Will sick, we didn't go. The kids and I played games, read books, built Legos, and watched movies. They have been filled with my undivided attention.

This quiet week at home has been a nice pause of reflection on the year that was and the year that begins today.

There is always so much that we could or should be doing. But it is lovely to be given the chance to be in the moment... just being... together.
