As some of you know, it's been a difficult summer for us. My mom is once again battling cancer - this is her fourth time around if you're counting. If you know my mom, you know she is magic. She always has enough for whatever you need - an extra place at the table, a tissue in her pocket, a bed to sleep in, a ride to spare, but mostly love.
So, as our summer melts away, as it always does too quickly this time of year, I find myself thinking of love. And magic. And hoping that it's enough to get through whatever may come next.
