I am just loving getting all my Christmas cards from my buddies here in blogworld.  I have 47 and my parents have 2.  We all laugh about it and the grandmonsters just love it to.  My Daddy just shakes his head and marvels at the amount of cards rolling in each day for me.  My Mom says they are healing our hearts and we should be grateful for them and you.

My mom stayed home from work on Friday cos she thought she had the flu. She was super tired, but no pukes or headache or nothing just tired and icky looking.  She cleaned the house a little and laid around with me all day.  She did the same thing on Saturday which bummed her out cos she had shopping to do. Sunday came and she was even more tired and icky feeling. Now she is back to work, and Dad is off today with me so I have had lots and lots of hugs.  Mom got to thinking that maybe it wasn't the flu at all but that she was just heartsick.  I think she's right, cos right now her heart is mostly held together by fragile cobwebs and its not very strong. She and I both know it will get stronger and heal but not yet.  When we read all your understanding and sharing words it gets stronger. When one of you call us to just let us know that you care it gets stronger. We believe each and everyone of you are our heartlights and that makes us stronger.

The holidays are a fun time and a hard time for most people. I am glad I am here for my parents and that they are here for me. We are blessed to have each other and you.

  1. Stella Rose you take care of mum. It has been a really stressful time and it is no wonder mum has been under the weather. Take care all and we wish you well.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. I know with each passing day you all are getting stronger and stronger. One thing you said about cobweds struck a cord with me. While we might think of cobwebs as easily broken the truth is the strength of spider webs is greater than the same weight of steel and has much greater elasticity. In fact it's micro-structure is being investigated for potential applications in industry, including bullet-proof vest and artificial tendons. Those cobwebs that are holding your heart together are stronger than you know.

  3. Oh do you look adorable. You are good healing medicine for mom
