Today I woke up to the most AMAZING snuggles from my little one...and I felt so much stress, fear, and worry just melt away.  She seems to know exactly when I'm needing it...and she held me close with our eyelashes touching and I just wanted to pause life...and not let that moment go.  Last night I loved watching my oldest giggle to the point where she couldn't breath as she told me the cheesiest halloween jokes ever that she learned from school.  She said she was practicing them so that she could make me laugh...and she did...I laughed until I was pretty sure I ripped something inside.  I didn't feel well at all yesterday, but I barely remember that... These are the moments I cherish!

Wow! Those are the moments you wanna bottle up and keep forever! I'm sorry u are still struggling. Please know I am willing and able to come and help or just visit. I give some mean foot massages, I know how to change bed pans( actually I never have before, but what's the worst that could happen!), tap dance, sing, bake, give u a sponge bath;), etc. ( never said I can do any of them well!). Get better friend. Love you to pieces or in pieces...

I'm so glad I've seen your girls recently and can really picture this scene! You truly are blessed with wonderful little girls!!! I'm sorry to hear that you weren't feeling well. I hope tomorrow is better!

We've been visiting grandchildren in Heber City the past few days. Fun to go for Autumn leaf walks, carve pumpkins and create graham cracker haunted houses. I trust your healing is getting better with each day now. What a comfort and sheer joy to have two darling girls to help ease the trauma you are experiencing emotionally and physically. I hope all the medical input lately has been positive.

On a humorous note: This morning before we left their home I showed our son in law my cool $5.00 solar powered flashlight from Zuchers. It is stamped "Made in Shenzen, China" (Alicia and Brandan will leave Wednesday for Shekow, which is between Shenzen and Hon Kong.) Collin (son in law) said he took a photo of one of his scouts pocket knife blades which has these words engraved in it: "Made in China: Headquarters of the United States". Okay, so maybe it's more scary than funny, but then tomorrow IS Halloween. Hope yours is delightful!
