So hubby and I decided to come home to Vermont this weekend. We arrived home after a wind storm to a house with no power (nothing unusual for the mountains in Vermont). We got our kids, cranked the wood stove, collected water from stream for flushing toilet, and snuggled in the living room all together. My mother in law offered to have us come to her house which had power....but everyone just wanted to be in our house together. I realized then how cancer has cemented our family even more together than the close knit family we were before. We lost power for 2 days and I decided to chuck the contents of the fridge. As I was cleaning it out, I realized how differently we eat now.....no more wine/beer, puddings, Kool aid, and junk. Funny because I thought we ate pretty healthily.....but it's amazing how much you learn through all this.
Cancer sucks but I see some good in it too. At least now I do anyway.
