1. Thank you so much for your kind feedback on Wednesday’s post about trying to cling to hope. I’m constantly amazed by the wonderful community of people I have around me! Thank you for being part of it.
2. Having my dad here was faaaaabulous. We got to take the munchkins to the splash pad, make a quick trip to the farmer’s market, do lots of talking, some eating (not enough), and, to top it off, he did several jobs around the house that I just haven’t been able to get to. It was amazing. Sigh. Why does most of our family live so far away!?
4. I feel horrible about not getting to thank a sweet angel who helped me this week at the post office. My double stroller got stuck in the lobby, and Sophie had lost it. I tried to calm her, while managing Milo (who was crying because Sophie was crying). Sophie insisted on holding 2 baby dolls, a backpack, and a twin-sized fluffy blanket, and couldn’t walk. People were starting to stare, a few people were even irritated and frustrated, and out of nowhere this lovely woman swooped in to help. She held Milo while I got Sophie wrangled. I took Milo from her, turned to pay for my package, and when I turned back around to thank her, she was gone. I didn’t get to ask her name or thank her properly for helping me. Dear, sweet, helpful lady, thank you. You saved me a little that day.
5. Fun feature this week over at Bless This Mess for our Apple Fritter Muffins. Melissa’s done a whole apple recipe round-up. I love her, love her blog, and feel glad to be included in the round-up! Pop over and stay awhile. You’ll love her too.
Happy weekend, dear reader. Wishing you every happy, good thing!
