The one and only thing I really wanted for Christmas this year has come true. My Dad will be home (barring a complication). He had the second part of his chemo yesterday and as of now he is home. I have never been much of a "thing" person but this year I feel even more like things are frivolous and needless.
I hope that all of you out there who are going to be surrounded by family this weekend realize how lucky you are. Hug everyone a little tighter. Say I love you and mean it. Enjoy this Christmas.
