words near and dear to me...

“There is in every true woman's heart, a spark of heavenly fire, which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity, but which kindles up and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity.”
~Washington Irving
With my husband leaving for Wisconsin to start his new job next Friday, packing, cleaning and preparing my home to be listed with a realtor by Monday and trying to find a new home in Wisconsin while sitting at my computer in Ohio has been leaving me feeling a bit overwhelmed. But when Sarah was struck by a flu bug yesterday morning...while sleeping in her brother's bed...I was humbled by the love, patience, kindness and gentleness with which my son handled the situation and took care of his sister before coming to wake me up. To everyone who has left comments and sent emails, well wishes, good thoughts and prayers... Thank you from the bottom of my heart, they give me strength and comfort.
