Hope


Tonight, as I sit here exhausted from taking care of sick kids and a sick husband (yes, Michael and Andy have also come down with flu), I have hope. I received this rose from Peter's teacher last Wednesday, and, in the middle of January, it has bloomed beautifully. This rose reminds me that as I am taking care of my family to trust in God and, as St. Therese did, live in the present moment. Drew is better, so I am thankful for that!

The rose is beautiful! I am glad that you are slowly coming out of this illness, and that are all GERM free at least for the rest of this year! You have had enough.

What would we do without hope?! I hope your family is all well again tomorrow and that you don't get it.

As long as there is hope, there is life!

Hang in there honey. You are doing great and know I've been thinking of you and praying for the last two days.

You've gotta be almost to the end of all this...YOU CAN DO IT!
