fleeting


Abbott has been home from school, sick, all week. While the reason is unfortunate, I've quite enjoyed the time alone with him - precious and rare.

Yesterday I was interviewed by my blogging friend Sarah Jio for Glamour's health and fitness blog; you can read it here, if you like.

My husband returned from a week away, and he commented on how much the leaves changed as well as the temperature.
Very nice photos, and I hope Abott is feeling better after a day at home with lots of attention and that he looks forward to getting back to school with his fun teacher.

Lecia, I'm at a loss for words. I admire your strength and your smile. Reading about your sadness about missing an important stage of your kids childhood while you were undergoing treatment, I was overwhelmed by my own sadness about spending many years of my own kids early childhood crying over their stillborn siblings. I have a lot to learn from your strength and your smile.

i read the interview. i'm at a loss of words. francesca is right, we could certainly all learn a thing or two from your strength and your smile.

wishing you a beautiful day!

Absolutely fantastic interview! Wow! I agree about following your instincts. I think it means something to pay attention. So glad you did...

Thank you for sharing the interview with us. I have only started following your blog since summer and had not realized that you have battled breast cancer twice. Unfortunately, I lost my cousin this summer to breast cancer so I know what a journey you have been through. You are very courageous and I admire your strength.
Continue to love your family and yourself as you do. I see thru your posts how you take the time to "be in the moment" with the photos you share with us.

Keep up your lovely work...

Much as I can't stand being mauled by my children, and much as I have BIG personal space issues, I have to admit that the sweetness of a snugly sick kid has always been quite special to my heart.

Poor Abbott! I have the flu myself. Feeling a tad better tonight, but it's been wretched. Thank you so much for the link, my dear, and for taking the time to do the interview with me. I so loved being able to post about you on Glamour.com! xo
