Thank you

Simcha Fisher - published on 01/03/14

Thank you, all my friends, for your words of consolation and for your prayers.  Thank you for sharing your stories.  So many of you have suffered so much.  What a crowd of beloved babies there must be, waiting and praying for us!  I am keeping all of you in my prayers, especially you parents who have lost babies you had really come to know and love.

Life goes on. We were supposed to be back to school Thursday, but we had a snow day yesterday and today.  All I did was rest and watch the kids fight and play, wrestle with the dog and eat popcorn.  My husband worked from home, and then he helped our resident Spiderbaby do a little ceiling walking, using the power of her favorite new hat:

Sweet baby, sweet husband.  Sweet life.
