Thank you so much for your very kind, thoughtful, and supportive comments on yesterday's post. I know my sister-in-law read them as well, and I believe she took strength from knowing that people are moved and are sending encouraging thoughts and prayers.
Because I know that some of you also went to the GoFundMe site, read their story, perhaps shared it, perhaps even donated funds, I'm sharing the photo that my nephew's wife, Carly, posted on Facebook on Monday, along with her words of gratitude and appreciation and hope.
I am forever grateful to everyone who has supported us in our time of need.
Carly, Ryan Schmidt and Adelyn Rose
As for me, I'm rallying, feeling considerably better (although I woke from the strangest dream this morning, with the words "The Great Depression" figuring significantly, ominously -- uh-oh!). We've been indulging in some Netflix binge-ing, which I justify by watching with French audio and French subtitling -- Témoins (Witnesses) -- very good, if you can handle intense suspense. Ditto for the Belgian show La Trêve/The Break which we also watched in French.
Today, we're heading over to Vancouver Island, although not all the way to the little island where we used to live. Still, I have visits scheduled with good friends, and while I may have lost my voice by the time I come back, I know my heart will be full.
What about you? What are you up to? (And isn't that a good-looking family above? I get to meet that little baby on Sunday, can't wait!)
