Life is full, and good, these days. Soccer, parties, cookies and hugs help overcome dishwasher bubbles on the floor. It's a matter of keeping focused on the good and managing the "bad".
EMN had peanut allergies and we recently watched a TV special about it. There have been a lot of ups and downs over the last 8 years. As she and I discussed it tonight driving back from a birthday party, we both agree to focus on the good. We arm ourselves with knowledge, do what we can to keep her healthy, and enjoy all the food that is safe without worry. She's a bright beautiful girl and I love the young lady she is becoming.
