Some sunshine

Here is a picture of some sunshine I received the other day from my friend, "M". "M" has been such a wonderful support to me... bringing meals, baking Christmas goodies for us, and a surprise gift of sunshine in the form of tulips. Thank you M! I love tulips so much, I think they're probably one of my favourite flowers. They remind me of spring - they start to bloom when winter has lost its glory.... the snow is dirty, the brownish grass is starting to peek through. But then tulips start arriving... full of beautiful colour and full of the promise of spring. Tulips always make me thankful to God for the seasons we get to experience and for His beautiful creation. So many wonderful things in it.... how can I not be thankful?

"M" is representative of the wonderful friends I have who have been supporting me through this past year. I say it often, and I'll say it again, all the cards, emails, meals, goodies, flowers and prayers I receive truly do mean the world to me. It helps keep me strong and I thank you ALL again.

Now... here's some pictures of one of my other sunshines, Ryan. Ryan and I were killing some time waiting for Kurtis to finish his skiing lesson. Ryan is such a ham so I took a ton of pictures of him acting for me. For those of you who know sign language, can you identify some signs??

Oh Ryan, you ROCK! I love the pictures of you signing! They are the best - give that mom of yours a big hug from us!

cYou really caught some great expressions of Ryan's. I'm sure I've seen a few of them myself. What a sweet entertainer. Hope you have a refreshing time away with Tom. Talk to you when you get back.
