I’ve been finding it hard to put all my thoughts into words lately.
Life is busy. This is a good thing. If I stop too long, I’m afraid I’ll worry too much about the stuff that I have no control over.
Let’s focus on the happy! (I think this is my mantra right now)
Swimming lessons ended on a very happy note with both girls advancing. Rachel finished Swimmer 3 and Lauren finished Preschool E. In the fall, Rachel will be in Swimmer 4 and Lauren was recommended for Swimmer 2!! She gets to skip Swimmer 1. She’s my little fish. Rachel surprised us this session tho. Her strokes, particularly back crawl, are starting to look like real strokes and not just arms and legs flailing everywhere.
March Break came and went with out any big hurrah. The girls spent their days at G&G’s house while Craig and I worked. I’m saving my vacation days for this summer. I cannot wait to get out camping!
We did spend time in the evenings outside. The weather was much too nice to stay inside. The girls rode their bikes or played catch. I cleaned up the gardens and chatted with the neighbours catching up on the last few months. Even with the warmer winter weather, people still seemed to hibernate.
The girls’ big hair cuts are only 2 days away! The response that we have gotten from friends is very overwhelming! They’ve raised almost $3000!
But it’s more that just the money. People have shared their personal cancer stories of how it has affected them or a loved one. I am in such awe of my little girls. They want people to have wigs because they know that the medicine needed to make them better makes their hair fall out. Selflessly they will give what they have to help them. And they offer it without hesitation.
I keep these happy thoughts with me as trudge through the not so happy times that may lay ahead.
Please share you happy stories; they will really help right now.
and good news gives health to the bones.
