Our Happy Place
To All Who Come To This Happy Place: Welcome.
Today I left cancer and all its baggage at the gate. They won't let you take that stuff in here. You must leave your troubles and your worries at the door when you enter.
Today I discarded my hurt feelings and wounded body, so I could just be a Mama in a Tinkerbell hoody, standing on Main Street, waving and clapping as both my sons marched by. Youngest son Robin, playing mallots, strode past, with his older brother Batman marching alongside as an instructor. Batman's girl BabyBear marched too, as the color guard instructor. It was like a trifecta, with all three of them in the parade together.
It was a good day,
and my heart soared,
like a run away balloon.
