A Day with Libby

Yesterday I had a nice visit with Madame Butterfly herself. Libby is growing everyday and speaking very full sentences. Her vocabulary seems so advanced! The new Speedo is an early Easter present, along with a sun dress and a Strawberry Shortcake workbook. She still delights in Spongebob, and favors juice over milk. She enjoyed her spaghetti, and then off for a walk to the pool, but it was a little cool to swim. Overall she seems happy and content. Libby loves when everyone laughs together.

Time is "March"ing On

The fact that the 12th of the month comes and goes without upsetting me, must show some healing in my grief. At first I was so fearful of having to face it each month, then sad to relive it.

I had a new experience recently. I thought about calling Guen on the phone. For a few seconds I forgot I coudn't. I said in my mind, "I think I'm going to give Guen a call." Ooh weird.

A recent family birthday made me quite sad. Oh how I wished she was there for it.

There was an article in the paper for a cancer walk. Along with this they were asking for volunteers to participate in a cancer study for the next few years. The main information they needed were the volunteer's waist sizes. I did not understand the connection, so I looked it up. Waist measurements above 34.6 inches for women and 40.2 inches for men are strong indicators of cancer risk. Who knew?

Spring is coming. A baby bunny came to my back sliding door, got on his hind legs, and looked in. So cute!

The pictures are from 6 years ago. Guen was pretending to be one of those home shopping hostesses. She was quite good at it! Those were some fun, silly moments:)

Pray for Katrina

Katrina is 25 and started suffering from severe back pain. After many tests she has been diagnosed with Leukemia. Chemo started last week. She and the family would treasure your prayers. Her brother-in-law is a friend of my husband, and we have mutual close family friends.
