Today was a busy day! Naps, visitors (thank you Katie!), an awesome package (thank you Tami!), two phone calls I never got back to (Thank you Sarah Lynn and Chris and/or Kyra), and one shower.
The water smells like a dirty gerbil cage - and therefore showering is a very pleasant experience.
I got SERIOUSLY the best care package EVER (those ones from Mrs. W with the knitting and the Girl Scout cookies were pretty good - but this was AWESOME!) Photos will be posted - it is THAT awesome. Just need to find a time to get around to that. Today I was distracted by various activities.
Katie brought me candy - my two favorite types - and a deck of cards, and talking with her made my day bright and sunny!
AND MY MOM CAME TO VISIT! Well, more like came to stay - and as much as I sometimes complain about my time and how it is used when my mom is here with me in the hospital - nothing beats having my mom with me because she'll do anything for me and I know I don't have to be timid about asking for her help. And having her show up was seriously the best present I could have asked for today because sometimes you just need a hug from your mom.
And I'm so lucky to still have my mom, for one thing, and for two, to have the mom I have.
Today I showed her the montage Tami made for Emily (I've posted it here - trying to get people to donate - and you really should donate!!!), and it uses the song "You are my sunshine," and my mom and I cried together because she told me how much she's always hated that song - especially when I was a baby. She hates it not because it's an annoying kid's song or because the singer can't carry a tune, but because of the lyrics. And tonight, I know that my mom is my sunshine.
"You are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You make me happy
When skies are gray
You'll never know dear
How much I love you
Please don't take
My sunshine away."
France won the World Cup and all I got was a lesson in how to chill out - On Sunday I befriended a 20-year-old French kid named Etienne while sitting on the concrete railing of a walkway leading down to the Seine. We were gathere...
