281. Surrounded by Family

Today was a day I was surrounded by family. It was crazy too because all of them sort of popped up out of nowhere. One by one everyone from my sister and nephew to my parents and mother-in-law showed up to my hospital room.

At first their faces looked gloomy, filled with worry and concern. By the end of the day, you would've thought it was the holiday season. There was laughter, football talk, and meaningful conversation. I enjoyed it all very much,

Even though I'm dozing off, struggling to get through this blog, I just want to say how grateful I am to have people to care about me and vice versa. It's beautiful. I am also grateful for this blog. Day or night, rain or dry, in pain or not, I believe daily blogging captures the truth of everyday life. 

Things won't always be perfect and you'll read about what happens either way. 

Thank you for your continued support.
