Didn't want to go to bed leaving you with the semi-depressing blog I wrote a minute ago, so here's a more positive thought:
This time next week I'll be visiting one of my very favorite people in the world! He also happens to be one of my children. What a blessing having offspring you love so much and enjoy being around! So many parents can't, but my kids have grown up to be the type of people that I choose to have as friends, not just relatives.
