I am very happy to announce that this is now a sty free blog. Rebecca was an absolute trooper today and handled her surgery with courage and grace. The procedure took about ten minutes and was completely without incident.
As if no longer carrying around a ball of pus on your eyelid is not reason enough to be happy, we were surprised twice today with goodies.
My dear cousin Cheryl sent us a wonderful souvenir from her vacation.
Rebecca sorted some and used others to make a necklace. I've put them in a glass jar with some beach sand at the bottom. Doesn't everyone just happen to have beach sand in their basement waiting for the right moment?
It was such a delight to go through the shells and imagine their life before they found their way to the beach, then a box and finally our home. Thank you Cheryl!
A little later in the day the doorbell rang which caused my dogs to completely lose their minds. I went to the door to assure whomever it was that I would not be releasing the hounds when I saw our pal Charlie hurrying back to his mom's car after making a super secret delivery.
Look at all the goodies they brought us!
Each item had a note.
This one was on the flowers.
We know who these are for!
There were also these books for Rebecca.
And this one for Lily.
Charlie made David a beautiful thank you note for inviting him to the set last weekend.
Graham crackers which Lily wasted no time getting into.
Guess who this is for?
I know they meant to write "This belongs to Sara and if you value your life you'll keep your mitts off it."
Thank you so much to Amy, Sean, Charlie and Theo for all the goodies. You guys made us blush.
It was so lovely to find ourselves in the thoughts of others today.
I find myself saying it all the time, but must say it again. We are so lucky and I am so grateful.
