“Love makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place.” -- Zora Neale Hurston
I wish you could see the sun streaming through my windows in all of its golden goodness. I feel bathed in light, even though its still -11 outside. The promise of spring still looms crisply in the air.
My second week of recovery has gone even better than the first. I even ventured out on my own for early morning coffee with a friend one day. The moments added up in a bountiful and beautiful way that morning and I walked away feeling rejuvenated and grateful that someone had come so far, and went out of their way to meet me so early for coffee and what turned out to be a whole lot more.
These roses showed up late last night and were worth getting out of bed to come and see. It was sweet Colton, who after a long hockey practice, cut them, and put them so nicely in water for me. He always knows the very thing that will make my heart beat just a little faster.
A surprise of a gift from a friend who somehow knew these would satisfy the craving for sweet I've had and also just touch me that they would think of me! There may or may not have been 4 when they first arrived last night… smiles…
I'm still finding beauty in the small… the tiny… the infinitesimal. The moments add up and weave themselves into a beautiful tapestry if you let them.
This one has Peewee B district tournaments this weekend. All four of us get to go and watch. Go Junior Spuds!! If we win, we will advance to the regional tournament next weekend. Otherwise, our season will end. Fingers crossed they move on!!
This goofy guy just cracks me up. In his steadfast devotion to me, as I sit melting in heat that tingles from the inside out and erupts in a flash that flushes me from head to toe… this little guy starts panting right along- his sympathy "hot flashes" leave my sides heaving with laughter.

Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you find a small moment to treasure today. I always say, "Live your moments- live your moments full."
