Warm Sunday. Jack and Hudson, 2 of my handsome grandsons, enjoy the short sleeve weather while riding scooters in my driveway. The temperatures are in the 70's. Got to love living where the sun shines like this in February!
A snowy Tuesday with temps in the 30's - a rare occurence here. It won't last long. Thank goodness! Most of us who l;ive in central Texas don't want to see much of the white stuff. Every few years for a day or two is just enough to appreciate its beauty and not too much to have to invest in snow tires, winter boots, snow blowers etc.

Sophie is the tall one with all those luscious curls. And here we have Ivy eating apple pie, her favorite dessert!!
Indulge me while I share a poem I wrote when Sophie was a toddler and Ivy was about to be born. Although not great literature, I hope it expresses my wonderment and joy I.ve found in all my grandchildren.
I never believed in fairies but I wanted to
In the shadowed corner of a stone porch my whispering sister stole the secret of Santa, the Easter Bunny and all things magical from me.
Witnessed: miracle of my beautiful daughter from my body Witnessed: miracle of my beautiful granddaughter from her body
Now I have unabashed faith in fairies. Can there be any other explanation for these mysticall creatures who now visit my spirit's garden?
Winged wonders flitting through my life brightening my soul with each touch of their sparkly wands stunning with their magic dust fallout of splendor that fertilizes the love hidden in every rocky cleft, thorned bush and uncurled frond of my being
Happy Birthdays to all of you!!!!!
(How come line and word spacings are different drom what I do and then what is posted?)

Her parents are in the worst nightmare imagineable. I can't begin to imagine how they are feeling or what they are thinking. No one should have to watch their child lie in ICU with machines attached. Cherie and Michael have handled this latest medical emergency with an unbelieveable grace as they have handled every up and down in the last 3 years. They have fought to get the best treament for Nikki. They have been gracious to all the wellwishers even when they are at their most tired. They have remained determined to live a life with more smiles than tears.
They have a multitude of friends who all feel the same. "If we knew how to take away some of their pain, we would. If we could take on Nikki's cancer, we would." But often it is a lonely battle for Cherie, Michael and Nikki. Know that we carry you in our hearts and minds; we are in awe of your courage and will; we look forward to seeing that great Nikki smile soon.
Get well, Nikki!!!
