At this time a year ago we were on about the fourth day of gray rain, wind, cold and even a little snow. The fourth day of watching and waiting and wondering. It seemed heaven cried with us.
This year it's suddenly unusually warm, pleasant even. Frost patterned car roofs and painted leaves by morning. Blue skies and sunshine by day. Moonlight by night. Peace.
Nature's relentless, redeeming hope shines through our shadows of heartache and grief. Laughter and tears together.
Nate proposed a really good plan for tomorrow. No school for kids. No work for mom. Sleep in. Quiet morning. Lunch out together. Shop for basket & stuff to fill it. Visit Innovis critical care unit and leave the basket for someone there who needs it. He has Good memories of the hospital - being surrounded by love and care and concern - being provided for in so many ways.
