Lotta Love

If shifts in topic and mood seem abrupt, it's because they are
I'd like to shed any pretense that we handle everything with grace, and to point out that much of the time we feel like we're putting the capital H in both hardship and heartache.  Yet there's still a whole lot of happy here, a WHOLE lotta love weaving it's way through our days, and we're determined to focus on that.

Jenni Baby and Andy My Boy,

Happy Valentine's Day!


P.S. OSU has reviewed the pics and decided which boy to start at quarterback and who should start at linebacker. Buckeye uniform fitting...17 years and counting.

I asked my son Keegan today who would be his Valentine at school. He said, "Andrew and Nate":) I love this age when there are no worries about being cool and having girlfriends. Hopefully one of your valentines is taking you out on the town. Even if that means a playdate in the snow this morning.

I wondered how Tucker made the cool heart shapes that now adorn our refrigerator... but I did not guess guess a cardboard tube... so clever. And Tollie's smile could melt anyone's heart. Hugs today!

We love "The Valentine Bears" too!! I'm so happy and pleased to know that you still can feel the immense love saturating your lives, even in the midst of all your pain. May you continue to feel that love, and may it carry you through when you feel like you just can't. Happy Valentine's day-enjoy your day and each other!

Love and Hugs,

Cate, Zoey, and Junior

Baby smiles and shirtless toddlers doing crafts is exactly what I needed to see today!
