I read the Caringbridge site for a woman I know who is battling the Real O.C. Hers is a battle so fierce that I brace myself before I read updates.
The doctors had “prepared them for the worst” long ago. But, like our dear Persephone, she is rising just in time for Spring.

Spending Valentine’s day with June here at home was a beautiful gift. I can’t tell you how good it felt to have a normal Sunday where we could be side by side on the sofa pouring over sections of the New York Times together and watching the Olympics on TV. It’s sad that it takes such a terrible illness to get us to appreciate the small things, isn’t it?
Yes, it is! But here we are.
Enjoy your Monday, whatever you have planned.
