There are things that have brought a smile to my face and lightness to my heart:
The little boy (maybe 9 months old) dedicated at church yesterday. He was having a good time waving about his arms and kicking his legs then when the minister charged the parents with their responsibilities, he turned his head to her and watched her intently throughout the whole thing! He was adorable.
The hugs, concern and prayers from so many in my real world, Facebook and online. (thanks, Amy for dropping by and leaving a comment to check on us)
The offers of physical help, so greatly appreciated but this time even we will not be able to do the rebuilding, it will take machines and a crew.
Reading the Sweet One's sister's FB page. Her children's comments over the last few days have made me laugh.
Winning not one but TWO blog giveaways. I won the Pass the Book for the copy of One Day at jimjams and also won candy for Mel's blogiversary giveaway over at ispeakmelsh
Knowing that we all are going to be alright...which means I am now weepy so will sign off with a song that Hope shared yesterday. I'll be telling our Irene story in the next few days.
