Its -16 degrees today and when you factor in the wind? The wind chill factor makes it feel like its -29. Really, when you start going below zero, its just cold! Your skin can freeze in minutes if it isn't covered.
Do you know what warms me?
~ The incredibly thoughtful and beautifully uplifting things you have delivered to my mail box! Cards, generous gifts, and a picturesque hockey calendar that has the boys wide eyed. Thank you friends and family!
~ A Monday night out at Spitfire with my book club girls. Amy entered us into a contest and look what we won! A hard cover book of Kristin Hannah's Home Front, which Amy has read and said its really good. As a book club we are going to read it and then share our thoughts on her blog!
~ Dare I even mention the last thing that has warmed my heart? Two years in a row we have attempted to make this happen. We have clung to a little stash of money which sits in an envelope hidden away behind lock and key. It won't come close to what we will need, and yet, we are stepping forward in faith that we will make it work. We've been far too wistful, yearning for it to be our time... we're ready to make it be our time! The cover in the book above is just a sneak peak of what we hope to do!
Come Easter break we are headed out on a little excursion... details to come soon!
No news from Dr. Panwalkar yet about a plan for treatment, but I will place a call soon if I don't hear anything...
Thank you all for your kind and generous comments on the post about my mom. I have been flooded with email and have had many in person conversations with so many who have similar experiences... I hope to continue to share more and try to keep it real and authentic... thank you for making me feel like I can.
