Today I found out my dad has leukemia.

Today I realized that all the petty crap that I worry about means nothing.

Why does it take something like this, such a severe wake up call to put things in the perspective they need to be?

I just want my dad to get well.

I love you dad.

Purty Feet

I just got a pedicure yesterday. It had only been about 2 months, but in that short time my feet went from being smooth and silky to cheese grater.

This dry, desert climate is not conducive to maintaining feminine feet!

(P.S. Don't pay attention to the hairy big toe... focus on the pretty flower....)

This Totally Made My Day Today

Paula, my sister-in-law sent this email to us today. We visited their family over Memorial Day weekend. These are some of the things their kids (our niece and nephew) have been saying since our visit.


Today over breakfast, Caleb told me that the next time Mike and Tammy come, he wants to take them on the train. "And we'll hurry fast fast so we don't miss our train!"

Then Cerena said "Miss Mike and Tammy." (As in, I miss them, not as in Ms. Tammy.)

The other day we drove by Bass Pro Shop, and Caleb started saying "I want to go to the shark store!" (He was looking at the big mouth bass on their sign.) I said, "You want to go back to the shark store?" He said, "Yeah. Let's go to the shark store to see if Mike and Tammy are there."

I put pictures up on the bathroom door of the rewards that Caleb earned by doing well on his potty training chart. One of the pictures is of him pointing toward the coming train. Daniel is holding him and Mike is in the background. Every. single. time. one of the kids goes into the bathroom, they point out Mike.

You're loved and missed, and I just thought you'd like to know. :)

I cried when I read it. My heart is full.
