Dear friends,

I had a wonderful weekend thanks to some old high school friends.  We are all turning 40 this year and of course due to my own circumstances we chose to get together for a girls' only weekend versus a quick day visit.  My oldest friend (we've been friends since the 3rd grade) took a special trip from CA to come up and join the rest of us.  It was a visit full of lots of reminiscing, lots of laughs, and yes, a few tears were shed as well.  I want to thank all of them for a wonderful time that will be cherished... until next year!  Yes, next year is a must girls.

I've also been meaning to share book recommendation with you all as well.  It was given to me as gift by another friend here in town and I must say its a tear jerker.  It's a children's picture book that can be interpreted in many ways and all of them will touch your heart.  The author's name is Nancy Tillman and its called Wherever You Are my love will find you.  The words are so meaningful and the illustrations are just downright sweet!

This is my favorite couple of lines.

"Make a big splash! Go out on a limb! My love will find you. My love can swim!

"It never gets lost, never fades, never ends..."

Until next time.

HI Katie, I just came upon your blog through another I follow. First, I would like to say how very sorry I am for all that you are going through, you and your beautiful family. I am so happy your reports are positive!! I thought of these quotes to share in hopes they may help to raise your spirits when needed: "live in the moment and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering".
I am sure you are doing this as much as you are able. Also,"for every mountain, there is a miracle" I will be praying for and believing in yours. God Bless, stay strong!
