This week, Salice and I finally got to go visit the Houstom Museum of Natural Science to see the Titanic Exhibit. She and I have wanted to see it for months but something kept coming up and ruining our plans. I was grateful to share such an interesting experience with her and we even got to speak with the curator and see some extras that aren't on display at the museum! It was great to share the experience with her and we even made a date out of it. Dinner and a museum -- what more can you ask for??? :)
This week receive some disappointing news about my brother. He has been in the hospital since the weekend and was diagnosed with full-fledged Crohn's disease. Previously, we had been told that he was suffering from Ulcerative Colitis but now we know that he has an even longer battle ahead of him. I am so thankful for all the support and prayers from friends and family for his health and recovery from his current bout of GI issues. We are so blessed to have people thinking about him and checking up on him. And, I'm blessed to have friends who are there supporting all of us. Thank you all.
Today, my friend Rachel and her family come to stay with us. Rachel and I have been friends since we were in elementary school. I can't believe that I can look at her now with her two babies (2&3) and remember her just a couple years older than those boys! On Friday, she and her family were driving through Houston to meet her in-laws for a week in Galveston and they had some time to kill. Luckily, I had just arrived from my business trip and was about 15 minutes away! We got to spend about 45 minutes together completely impromptu! Sometimes those are the best visits! I'm thankful she gets to spend the next couple of days with me as well!
I'm so thankful for my morning dates with my friend Kim (my anchor ;)). Whether it's to our favorite Starbucks or to get some breakfast, our dates really help my days. Not sure what I'd do without her here (so she can't even change jobs! Or get preggo again and leave me... haha).
Loving and learning a little more each day.
