warmth

warmth

tonight
i sit here feeling so thankful
about so much still.

today started out warm and humid
which gave way to lots and lots of rain
which gave way to quite a drop in temperature.
we went from air conditioning in the morning
to fire in the fireplace tonight.

today, the boys and i went out for a day
of shopping where they bought their sisters
a christmas gift. it was also a day that
i could spend with just them. we had breakfast
out at a favorite restaurant, right in front of
a huge fireplace with the warmth radiating right
up to our table. (i was wishing the whole time
that i wouldn't have forgotten my camera at home.)

this evening we were searching for even more warmth
as the temperatures continued to drop. i made a
turkey pot pie, full of fresh veggies and with the yummiest crust on top
and a pan of cornbread in my old cast iron skillet
that was full of chopped green onions fresh from the
garden.  i had a good 30 minute walk with cooper,
then made a little hot cocoa for the kids and enjoyed a  fire in the
fireplace for a perfect way to wind down this busy
day...this busy week.

on thursday, ethan will have an MRI to evaluate the situation that we were faced with a few weeks ago.  if you're so inclined, all prayers for good health will be greatly appreciated.
