“Why do we still try to live as if we’re “normal”?, J asked me in the midst of a long weekend of celebrating our youngest daughter’s high school graduation. That evening I reacted to a chemical in a a loved one’s hairspray and I had gone down for the count for the rest of the night. This required much care from J as he did his best to continue to be the best host he could be.
This morning, our guest now all on route home, I asked J, who is both back at work and sick with a bug, “Was it worth it?”
”OH,YA!” he answered without hesitation.
It costs a lot to have a celebration when you or someone in your family is sick. I know there’s a chance there will be a time its too much for us to host celebrations… even with the help of our family who “gets” that we aren’t “normal”,roll their sleeves up in the kitchen, serve themselves, and do the best they can to wear only “Kerry safe” products.
Until then, the one’s we love and the memories we make are priceless.
