Popping in to say thank you...

I have been beautifully overwhelmed with supportive emails and kind words about what we are going through over the last few days. Thank you all so much for your understanding. I don't know where this is all going for me... but...

We are doing ok.

We hold hands a lot.

Last night we stayed up late and made Valentine's for our children. I cut out hearts and we wrote down good things about each of our kids and 'sneak attacked' their rooms with them. They woke up to messages of love.

We are so grateful.

He got the plumber to come and fix the bathroom. He fixed the printer for me.

He does not think of the 'whatifs' or the 'maybes' as I do. He holds me when the 'whatifs' overtake me, and tells me everything is good.

He is here.

I make him good food, snuggle with him while watching movies, and write "I love you" in his cocoa.

We are all here, loving each other. And so very grateful.

Happy Valentine's Day my wonderfully supportive, understanding friends.

Oh Val! I just read yesterday's post. How precious to be able to hold your husband's hand this Valentine's day! "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning."

Just did a quick wander and saw where your husband used to be a glass artist. It wasn't with BAGI by any chance?

Keep your chin up! You'll get through this, you're a tough, yet gentle cookie. Happy Valentine's Day!

As difficult as this time may be, you may come to look upon it as changing the way you view life. Sometimes we rush through life and never appreciate the wonderful things we have - it seems you are taking the time to show that love - we can all learn from that.
