Despite a few bumps in the road this week, there have been lots of happy things to report. One of those things is all of you. Your comments and emails have been wonderful and it reminds me of how important friends are - near or far.
Another happy thing is looking out the upstairs windows onto a bare (almost) snow free roof. It may not seem like much but it really made me happy. And I hope I don't jinx it - but it hasn't snowed a flake since Tuesday. That makes me REALLY happy!
Then a family friend arrived at the door with a beautiful bouquet of pink tulips. So springy and cheery. I keep them on the kitchen table so they are the first thing I see when I walk in the door.
And last night was the event in honor of my friend who died of cancer. His sister organizes the event to raise money for the Palliative Care unit at the hospital. Last night over $4500 was raised and I am thrilled to say my hooked rug donation to the silent auction raised $205. The only other thing at the auction that raised more money was a hockey jersey actually worn and signed by Sidney Crosby. So considered the hockey fans around here I am very pleased.
I am also happy that Mom's swelling is down a bit more. Still not back to normal but it isn't getting any worse so that's great!
And no post on happiness would be complete without a mention of sweet Millie. She always makes me happy.
