I thought I'd have so much time to blog when I was visiting Mom, and I did have time..but no internet access. I guess I didn't realize how wireless home is!
Anyway, I'm back. And mom is doing much better than before. She is recovering slowly, but steadily. She has a little time ahead of her to heal, but it's going well so far. She has one more month off work, so she should be in good shape by November! Yay!
Shawn and I both went to the school and had lunch with Emily yesterday. It was super fun!
Shawn charmed the 3rd grade girls and they called him a "show off", which he was by the way. ;)
And I met the most captivating 1st grader. He was a very enthusiatic charmer with the most contagious smile I have ever seen. When he smiled, his entire face lit up. But the best part about him was his conversation. This boy spent the entire lunch hour bragging about the special girl in his life -- his mom. "My mom cooks the most amazing suppers ever!", and "At Christmas and birthdays, you should taste her cakes!", and "My mom can eat super hot spicy food without even taking a drink!"... it was so precious to hear a boy brag about his mom. Just the things he said showed me that he loved this woman with all his heart, and she had truly captured his love and attention.
Mother Theresa once said "love begins by taking care of the closest ones - the ones at home". This mom, whoever she is, has surely done her job well. I pray a blessing on her day,... and her week.
It's good to be home.
