Today I found a card from my Aunt Marlene that she wrote to me just a few weeks after Mom passed away. This was her fraternal twin sister that she lost. Yet she sent ME a card, comforting me. I had to share it with you. It continues to touch my heart every time I read it. Is it any wonder I love this woman so much and feel so close to her? She and I have the kind of relationship that Mom and I could never have. I feel the same way about my Uncle Ron from Georgia. He is the dad I don't have in his brother. I continually ask him if he wants to adopt me, and he says, "Sure! I have four girls already, and you're like one of my own, so what the heck?" :)
I have a card album I periodically add cards to. I save cards that are especially meaningful to me...or especially funny. I will have to start a second album soon, but one thing I am sure of: this one is a keeper!
Aunt Marlene is also on my mind today because she goes to consult with her doctor regarding this surgery. At first I thought today was the ACTUAL surgery, but turns out, I misunderstood. Today is an "explore our options" appointment. We all hope to be better informed afterward.
Anyway, here is the card I wanted to share:

Yesterday was a tough day for me, but today seems to be turning out much better. Sheila stopped by work after hours yesterday and we had a really good talk. I always love spending time with her. Then I went home and cleaned like a mad woman. Rob and I were hacked off at each other, so both of us stayed away from one another in the house. Jess and Jo were at a friend's house, and Josh was playing basketball across the street with a friend.
I usually don't spend that much time after work cleaning. I think I cleaned for a solid three hours. I put all my angry energy to work, and I am happy with the results. I guess we need to have a good spat on occasion. :) Makes the house look much more tidy! That, and I slept good having worn myself out. The scales say I lost two pounds today, so that's good. I'm not a huge fan of housework, but my waistline seems to approve.
Hope you all have a great weekend. Anything exciting in store?
