(eta: to have been posted friday, jan 20.2012.)
As with every person I have ever come in contact with, life happens.
Last weeks joy dare was suppose to lead into this weeks project life|week two.
We were to visit the ER on Monday afternoon with the 16 m/o.
Seems it was his day to face plant into the counter stool...with a little help from a sibling.
Lots of blood.
Trip to the hospital.
Yet so many gifts came from this that I may not had seen before...
if I was not 'looking' for them.
