I did not bake anything, I went to Dairy Queen and purchased Dilly Bars. They all loved them and sat around and giggled while licking melting ice cream... just as they would giggle while eating homemade cake or pie. I still think it is better to have a homemade treat - but what do I know? I am too tired at present to be making such a thing on a week day.
So tomorrow I shall go to work. It is Friday. I will work all day and then look forward to my weekend. I am more grateful than ever for those two days off per week.
Grateful tonight for a house full of healthy girls. Everyone was sober. Everyone was joyful, smiling, and enjoying themselves. There were no harsh words. There were not even any dirty looks. We have come a long way in the last three years - when my two daughters were not even speaking to each other.
The toll of the disease.
The endlessly evolving miracle of recovery.
I marvel at them both.
Thank you God.
