I can’t seem to make words into sentences, sentences into paragraphs, and paragraphs into pages of content. But I think today I can manage ten things. Thank you for your sweet emails and prayers; we’re okay. Somehow I just feel deeply weary and weighed down by too many things. Or maybe it’s just Writer’s Block.
1. Russ sent me a text this morning with this picture of the rose bushes in our yard with the caption: “Chainsaw pruning – a symbol of hope.”
2. I have an appointment with my hematologist on Friday; maybe he’ll have some insight into how I’m feeling.
3. The second day of Russ’ visit with Dimples was better than the first. It was very structured – a morning program, lunch, and then an afternoon of family games. He came home feeling pretty good about the time they spent together.
4. We’ve had to reschedule our weekly calls with Dimples due to Eby and Little Man’s baseball games and the schedule hasn’t come together yet. Today I picked up the phone, called the cottage, and asked if I could talk with Dimples. I was pleasantly surprised when it all worked out.
5. Bee spent the past week at a camp in Colorado where she got to see friends from Ethiopia as well as one of her dear friends who lives in Denver.
6. She also decided to cut her hair much shorter just before she went. It’s cute and spunky.
7. It has been raining for days, which means the pool has been closed and baseball canceled, but the wheat fields around us are a brilliant green. I crested a hill while driving home today and nearly had to stop the car just to take it in.
8. Time with good friends is precious to me. I took a long walk with my friend, Signe, and it was wonderful.
9. I need to fold laundry, plan a menu, and get better meals on the table.
10. Fortunately Ladybug has been picking up my slack and made a great meal for us last night – she even served homemade sweet potato fries. I love that girl.
I hope you are all well, and you mamas who are in the trenches are holding on tight to hope. If you have a minute, leave me a comment and say hello.
Have a great day, friends.
