Yesterday's stormy rain left behind the promise of more bright blue skies today. I'm looking forward to it.
Have a wonderful weekend!

I'm truly grateful for the community this little corner of the internet has nourished. Thank you all for your incredible outpouring of love, support and encouragement. Your thoughts and prayers have truly lifted us.My parents received an amaryllis - their first - for Christmas. Mother dutifully placed the box on the kitchen counter, right under a sunlight, watered it according to the instructions...and waited.
