There's something fishy going on.....
Yesterday evening, we answered the door bell to find no-one there - But we did see supper sitting on the steps for us - and the back of a car speeding away...The card had a nice jingle on it about the First Day of Christmas. Then this afternoon, another door bell...and another gift. (I love the soap by the way - it was on my Christmas list, how did you know?) And another card about the Second Day of Christmas.
hmmmm.....who could this be? Ethan thought this was the greatest - he couldn't stop talking about our mysterious givers. (the cards were signed "the Christmas spirit") Thank-you whoever you are! It sure does brighten our spirits here!
Very good timing on the hand soap and towel. Abigail threw up four times last night. We had planned to be at the Flames House tomorrow until Dec. 20th but that's on hold now. Rachel has been quite fussy from the afternoon on today too - and not eating much. I'm nervous that she is also getting this flu. She really does not need this. She eats so little to begin with...and has so little extra energy - this could be so hard on her.
Other good news (not for sure yet) - there is a good chance that we will get more respite hours. Right now, we have enough for 15 nights a month. In January we hope, that will change to 20 nights per month! While we love the Flames House, we notice that going back and forth has been hard on our kids. This way, we will be able to stay home more.
Thank-you dear friends for you friendship.
ps - glad we could get in some absolutely phenomenal chocolate cake before the flu....thanks guys.
oh there are so many ways we feel cared for by you....
