Time to heal.

Snuggle bugs at lunch last week.


You may remember these posts over the last 9 months.

Well, that lovely mom of mine is extraordinary when it comes to perseverance.  Tomorrow she goes in for more x-rays.  We hope and pray the images tell us her hip is repairing well.  The most recent hip replacement she had was in February and since then the hip has fractured.  We've been waiting to see if it will heal on it's own or if it needs a more extensive surgery to really hold together the fractured bones.  Man, the treatment for cancer can put you in all kinds of places that you never foresaw.  And my dear, beautiful mom really could use a break.  She is the kind of woman who makes you realize you can really do anything because of her incredible resilience in the face of trial.  As Mother's Day gets nearer I can only ponder how lucky Kevin and I are to have her and Kevin's mom in our lives.  Talk about strong, beautiful, loving Mothers.  We are pretty blessed they are ours.  And lucky to have them as examples.  Now that we are parents ourselves we realize the love that they have for us their children and how limitless it is.  It makes me love them even more.

Please remember my mom in your thoughts and prayers.  And if you remember send lots of love her way tomorrow morning.
