100%

Today I had blocked out as a 100% mom day. Josh was out of town. I had no appointments. Was not even expecting a call from the hospital. And so...we slept in and played hooky. We have been waiting to get out our sleds all winter, and woke to a valley covered in the beautiful powder Utah is know for. We dared each other down the biggest "cliffs" and chased our dog around the untouched snow. We even had a bit of sunshine. We then went to the movies, out to lunch, mini golfing, and played a round of laser tag. Came home and did some homework and organizing of rooms.

These boys just fill me with hope and courage, and every reason I need to stay positive. It's like they have little bits of me in side them, that shine out and remind me of how strong I am, how much I can do, and how much I can believe.

  7. You don't know me. Our family follows Steven's blog. We've followed both of your journeys the past year. We are amazed by your courage and strength. Our daughter, Rachel, battled AML (leukemia) and is currently cancer free, but we are constantly looking over our shoulder. We will pray for you and your family.
