Sundays are coming way too quickly these days. What used to be my favorite day of the week, has now become the day I have to leave my kids for two and a half days.
I have a new kind of gratitude for the four and a half days a week I’m home, and have noticed that I have been much more intentional about trying to enjoy every minute. Snuggles with Creed are sweeter. Talks with Maddie are longer. I revel in all these ordinary moments that have now turned sacred.
Today, before the last-minute cleaning, shopping, and packing activities that have become a big part of Saturdays, the kids and I spent some time on a little art-turned-mental-health project that was recommended to me by Mary Dev, who is a counselor at MD Anderson, and now part of my healthcare team.
