It’s been a long few days and today my husband came to the rescue by surprising me with a new robe! He is so sweet and it couldn’t have come at a better time. He bought me the “CloudSpun Robe” from V.S. and it is like nothing I’ve ever worn before! It literally feels like you are wrapped in a cloud, I highly recommend it. I haven’t been feeling good, the boys have been sick, and the nights are getting colder but just looking at the robe boosted my spirits, how’s that for medicine?!:) The bigger event that we’ve been dealing with though is that my Uncle Gene died yesterday. He had suffered with a brain tumor for quite a while so in some ways, there is a sense of peace that he is finally free from all that pain. At the same time of course it’s a major loss and a difficult thing for the family to go through. They have quite a large family (5 girls and 1 boy) and I am just a tiny link in that side of the family tree, but nevertheless I am grateful to be “home” and have the opportunity to be here. So today’s entry is a short one. I am beat, the boys need a bath, and my robe is calling me along with a big ole’ mug of hot chocolate and the Bible.
