He's right. There's been so much bad this year. So much loss, so much pain, so many challenges. But a few weeks ago, my mother-in-law said something that strikes me just as hard today as it did then, a reframe that eases my heart and gives me hope for the future:

Debbie is a very smart lady, even if I do beat her in Phase 10 a lot.
I beat cancer. I made and grew and delivered a healthy baby boy who has captured my heart in ways I didn't know were possible.
