Nordstrom Goodness + A Thank You


Happy, happy Thursday.  It is wet and rainy here and honestly quite icky, but I am finding the peace of sitting on my porch with the sound of the rain a welcome thing.  My yard, the bushes and the flowers are sure happy and I can hear a bird or two singing so that is an added plus to all the wet.

First of all I have to say THANK YOU.  When I shared on Instagram yesterday I had no idea it would be received as it was.  I was sitting in the school parking lot and I looked at the photo of us and decided to make some declarations for myself and for him and what it turned into has blessed us beyond words.  I can remember sitting in the therapist office waiting room on December 21 and seeing the doctor come out after just a few minutes and tell both my husband and I we had a problem and he might night be able to come home with us.  I can't tell you how I collapsed.  My world stopped, I was traumatized and I thought I would die on the spot.  A few weeks later one of our specialists asked me what I did outside the home.  Since I would be the primary caregiver he was asking what I could do as a time out from all my day entailed.  I told him about the blog.  He perked up and told me this was a good thing and demanded that I write daily.  I remember thinking he was crazy, the last thing I cared about was writing or finding another amazing blue + white porcelain piece to share.  I wanted to crawl into the hole with our son and just never leave. 

I did what he told me to do.  I will one day look back at all those Instagram posts + blog posts I wrote and read them.  I don't remember most of them, but I do remember being so grateful I had an escape for part of each day.  Without each of you I would not have had that gift.  I would not have had to write, and I would not have had a place to go to that was just mine in the dark days.  I might have not felt as strong and I know I would not feel the blessing I feel now when I finally shared and saw the flood of love, prayers and messages.  I am overwhelmed in the best way possible and that is all because of this little blog and the space it occupies. 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I have to share that this is the last week of the Nordstrom sale.  It is a good one, and if you are like me you wait for this sale to grab a few things you have had your eye on for a while.  So many things have sold out, but so many good things are still available and must be shared.  I have changed my links to take out the pieces that sold out so you can just have the current items to choose from, unless something changed on an item in the last two days since Anna Grace linked for me.  If so, I am sorry I missed it!


Hope your day is the best ... oh, and dry!
