Todd says he thinks I'm 100% back.
Feeling brave enough to go on a small trip with eight kiddos and no husband was a sign to him that my grit and endurance has returned.
We had so much fun visiting cousins in CT with day trips to New York City and Boston. My brother and sister-in-laws are the true heros. Who happily accomadates a family of nine for a week?!
My kids had the opportunity to go with their cousins inside the Boston temple and we all touched the temple!
We are home now. It is so good to go and so good to return!
I can't tell you how grateful I am for this little family of mine. The big kids are SO naturally helpful. I love spending time with my family.
We woke up Sunday morning to find a bloody chicken that had been attacked by a raccoon. We tried chicken hospital, brought the wounded chicken with us to church for additional assistance, and ended up having to put her down.
They say one pint of blood can save 3 lives. I think this number is deceptive. My life was spared because 200 strangers donated blood for me, Ben's life was saved. But, when I grab Eve's hand before she runs into the street, I wonder if they count her? You really can never see the impact of the good you do.
Oh friends, happy Spring!!!
Life is beautiful and so, so good.
Enjoy this week!!
