I've had so many things on my mind lately, and haven't given myself time to write any of them down. Tonight will not be the night for that [in-depth] either.
I've been thinking a lot about what it means to really be "pro-life."

I've been thinking about my friend's [Sarah Keller] little sister Laura and how she was diagnosed with lymphoma while I was in Arizona, and is now going through chemo. I couldn't even think about it all without crying for the first few weeks.

Magnolia only had one little accident today in what had been a month of potty training regression. I hope she'll get comfortable telling her teachers when she needs to go. Cora was 4 months older than Magnolia when she started school, and had been potty trained for almost a year. Magnolia had been potty trained for 3 months when school started. I lnow that makes a huge difference. M loves everything about school, except for the cute little potty in her classroom, apparently.

I've been thinking about a quote by Theodore Roosevelt: "Comparison is the thief of joy."
