Things are going much better here. I finally got my head outa my butt and looked around to see a great place here. This is a place set up for families of very very sick children. We are so very fortunate. We have met a little girl undergoing chemo and a 14 yr old boy waiting for a new heart for the second time in his life. It sure has opened up a new door of questions from Matthew. When I explained heart transplant to Matthew, I said we should pray that boy gets a new heart very soon. Matthew told me we couldn't, that would be asking God for some one else to die. Gosh, some conversations are hard.
We have started venturing out. The weather has gotten warmer. We hit the zoo yesterday. It is free here so we will be heading back there soon and often.
Matthew has been collecting 'nature' on his walks outside. Then, he sets up his 'free store' for all the volunteer ladies to choose a flower or a stone or a wood chip. He is quickly becoming rather popular around here. He has even been asked to present some candies to the volunteers at their annual volunteer dinner next week.
Someone popped a littlest petshop toy in our mailbox without a note. He's got them all eating out of his hands.
