Grace in Small Things, Week 2

1. Several days of warm weather in February.

2. Watching Lucas befriend a very shy boy at the park, introduce himself and share his truck and shovel. Feeling my heart grow to 10x its size.

3. A good stick. I've had my blood drawn about a million times in the past 9 months and Thursday's stick hurt very badly. So, I'm extra-appreciative of the other nurse who does such an amazing job you barely feel it.*

4. Putting a big fat stack of Valentines in the mail on Tuesday. (A very happy Valentine's Day to you, my dear readers!)

5. Spa night!

*Since I mentioned the blood draw, I certainly have to include the update that my platelet count is level with the past few months: just below the normal range. This might just be my new normal. Also, green light on the baby making! But my hematologist wants to be my first phone call when I get a positive result. (I assume I'll be telling Abel in person.) Mom, I promise you'll be #2. :) Don't expect anything too soon, though, because March will just have to be a practice month. Trying to avoid another Christmas baby thankyouverymuch.
