A day with Allison!

Allison and I spent the day together today & it was such a nice break. Just a week ago we had Mike's service. It's hard to have much time to talk when there are 3 little ones so John & his Mom took the kids to Arkansas for John's Grandmother's birthday and Allison & I got to go to the bookstore and out to lunch and then back to the house for awhile. We had a good day. She's the best daughter a mom could have and I can't imagine what I would do without her. Luckily, for me & for her & the kids, she found a wonderful man to marry & I'm so thankful for him.

Anyway, there's a chance for an ice storm on Monday night through Wednesday. Hopefully, they're wrong again & we can get on with watching for spring. We were going to have the trees all trimmed back but kept putting it off so if we can avoid this one, I'm calling the tree trimmers.

I had a delivery tonight from Debbie at The Nest and this is what I opened. It was from Debbie & her husband Ron who own The Thicket and The Nest in Springfield. I have been blessed with truly the best friends & I'm so grateful for their love & support. They had no idea what this surprise did for me -- let's just say I needed it tonight.

So glad you got to spend the day with Allison - I thought about you all day. We went to KC, but I kept thinking about last saturday and the service and the days leading up to it. I'm so grateful to God for you and Allison and her little family.Love you all,Susan

I thought I would just drop by and see how things were going for you. I so glad you got to spend the day with your daughter. Daughters are truly a blessing from God(not that sons aren't-its just different, right?). What a lovely thing to open the door to. I love getting floweres. You really are an inspiration. Stay strong. Debbie

Thanks Susan & Debbie for your notes of encouragement. It's hard to believe that it hasn't even been 2 wks. Every day is a first -- today was my 1st day to go to church by myself -- tomorrow may be my 1st ice storm. And yes, daughters are definitely a blessing. Thanks! Jan
