THIS is Real Life

As I write this, it is Sunday evening and the sun is shining. Two of my kids are playing outside my window on the trampoline, a third is hanging out in the kitchen while daddy makes dinner and the fourth just called begging for “just a little bit longer” at his friend’s house so they can watch the rest of “Lord of the Rings.” As I write this, I am also reminded that my “little” brother Rob goes in tomorrow to begin yet another five-day series of chemotherapy treatments.
