What is "Normal?"

Things are thumpin' along...Lance is doing homework, his Dad helping him out. Christian is building his train tracks in his room, the house is clean, everyone is fed...what more could a woman want?

Just when all seems calm, my Christian starts to ankle bleed. Well, I guess that's what our "normal" is.

Normal is a blood draw for Christian on Tuesday morning and chemo on Friday.

Normal is my Lance's iPod playing the latest on Broadway.

Normal is preparing to teach Bible Study on Tuesday evening.

Normal is my husband writing a paper for Seminary.

I love "normal" because our "normal" gives us unending laughter and joy. Despite the rough times, that is what is overwhelming...the love in our lives.

What does your "normal" look like?

1. my Pampered Chef pan

3. BBQ sauce
