Today is a very mixed day. My sister-in-law had her first appointment as a pregnant lady last week and found out everything is going well. We can now share the news publicly as we have been sworn to silence since Christmas Day. It has been a very long and difficult road for her and her husband and we are so excited that they have finally been blessed with a little bundle of joy on it's way!
On the other hand, I received news on Sunday that a dear friend of mine's mother had a massive stroke and was in the hospital. It was very difficult news to hear. Later that evening a mutual friend of ours called to say that our friend's mother had passed away. There is quite a group of us (that all scrapbook together and know her and her mother) that wish there is something that we could do to help her and her family through this difficult time. For now, we are providing as much emotional support as we can.
Yes, my blog friends, it's a difficult Monday filled with mixed emotions.
