1. This has been a difficult week. Monday our daughter called from school to tell us about her friend who was in a terrible accident and not expected to live. She died on Wednesday, after the hospital let her friends go and say goodbye to her. I was so proud of Elisa for being there, but at the same wishing she didn't have to do something so hard without me. The memorial service is Sunday for this young woman who died so young.
3. Sunday afternoon we have a special lunch planned with four other families for our friend who is dying of cancer. It promises to be a beautiful day and all the children will be there except two who are away at school. My son and his girlfriend are even joining us. We'll celebrate spring and life for as long as we can.
4. Since it is Lent we are eating many more meatless meals than usual. However, I prefer them much more to meat meals, so what is the sacrifice? Today for lunch I had brown rice with green pea pesto, it was so much better than say, a turkey sandwich.
5. I have a serious candle addiction.
