My Friday Finds

why thank you..... little lovely..... aren't you just picture perfect?

The Exchange District...... continues.....

I've been visiting the Exchange on trips to and from from the hospital.....  Here's a few of the lovely spaces/places I've been seeing......

The Latest on John 

John made it through another round of Chemo..... He's out of the hospital....waiting for a transplant date. All and all he's feeling pretty good.... As good as one can feel after months of chemotherapy. His spirits are good... his faith is strong..... and he's hanging on..... He's a trooper.

We are cozy as can be right now... Bryce is staying with us... it's 3 peas in a small pod...... I always appreciated my studio..... But now...more than ever........ Oh my... I can't wait to find my way home.....

The looks like we may be here... in the city.... until January. To be honest... it's difficult to wrap our head around all of this.... It's surreal... and some's just plain HARD.

There are times my heart literally aches.... for home... for family....for routine....structure..... for Benny... 

But we are okay.... We will get through this.....
One a time.

Thank you for sticking with me.... If you are in one of my current classes..... thank you for your patience..... I will deliver...  it may take a little longer than expected.... but I will......I will... I will.....

Please share your Friday Finds below..... 

Until next time..... gratitude... always....

Glad to hear that John is out of the hospital.
Sorry you might have to be in the city till January, but you will win this battle.

Thank you for the latest update Kim, glad the latest round is over for him and all of you are together. Continue to hope all goes as easy as possible for all of you in the days to come. Thank you for your recent comment on my blog I didn't want to burden you with another e-mail with a thank you but I do appreciate your kindness.

Hi Kim,
Thanks for the update – I’m so glad to hear that John is out of the hospital and you’ve completed one big step forward in his healing process. I love your textures and your classes and I have no problem “sticking” with you. Sending hugs and happy thoughts your way. Take care!

Good to hear the positive news on John. But, oh, yes, Kim! I can feunderstand your heartache. It's turning into such a long stretch. But you want to do this right the first time! Continuing to pray for you all.

Kim, I'm so happy to hear that John is holding is own...but my heart goes out to you as you miss your home, and structure, and your sweet Ben. I'm sending you many good thoughts and prayers! One day at a time. <3 Lovely photos, as always!

I hear what you are saying, Kim and I wish this was over, and you were all at home. But until you are, I don't think I am alone here when I say that you needn't worry about any of your classes. We love to hear from you and draw inspiration from each and every update. You write so poignantly,and your photography from the city is intriguing and beautiful. Go with it.

Kim, I vividly remember those days after my husband's stem cell transplant - 100 days of quarantine. While we missed home and our routines, I will forever remember how grateful I felt to have him by my side. We nested in our temporary housing near the big medical facility and shuttled our sons to see us possible. Our lives were forever changed by the cancer experiences . . . and every day is a blessing . . . and we know it. So shall you. Prayers to you and John. We love you!

Kim, I'm so happy to hear that John is out of the hospital and that he is doing well. Even though you aren't home, at least you guys are in the same space. January isn't so far away-just think about all the great things you are going to find in the city over the holidays. Hopefully you'll be able to sneak home and visit Ben. I'm sure he misses you, too:) Hugs and prayers to you all-

What good news to hear that John is done with that last bit of chemo. I know you wanted to be home sooner but sometimes it just takes a little longer for the goodness to happen. One foot in front of the other, I am not keeping up very well with the lessons right now so I don 't mind a little delay. I'm checking on you all the time though.
I'm loving your city photo's and your positive attitude. Tell John ...job well done..and almost home.
Love to you both and rejoicing for your family in your cozy little nest.

My thoughts are with you and your family. I'm glad you are finding the positive and beautiful in all this.

Kim and John:
I start to cry when I think of what you are going through. There are no words to describe how utterly beyond difficult this must be, on so many levels for you all.

Security and stability have been the things that I treasure in my life, after a period of not having much of them, and I can begin to imagine how real the stress of not being home can be. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Kim - you too are a trooper - I don't think that I would have the strength to carry on with your work as well as you have. I would be an emotional mess.

So sorry you are all going through this. My heart is with you and my prayers. I know what you are going through. It will get better. I will be praying for total remission for John.

Hugs, Susan
