Craving Alaska

"Mom, what if a ref kicked someone out of the game for being awesome?"
~Elliott (8)

Countless what if questions are asked in my house each day. I love the silly ones like this and the giggling boys who take turns coming up with hypothetical reasons for how the what if could work. The volume increases until we can't decipher the crazy scenarios with the laughter. I crave Alaska in these moments. I try to remind myself that she is with us, forever part of our family; she holds a piece of every bit of my joy.
