I'm making up a new abbreviation spin-off of TGIF, because as wonderful as Friday's are, family is even better!
So today... I'm TGFF-ing: Thanking God For Family.
Not only are both sides of our family coming together and rallying relentlessly for momma's recovery, but everyone has been willing to inconvenience their daily lives to make hers a little easier. This week, mom's been lucky to have lots of family around her, in particular my Aunt Deb, who has been the daily lunch and dinner elf... she's been cooking and baking food so my momma stays stuffed and happy out on her back deck in the sunshine. She's thoughtfully checking in at just the right times... "Need a little ice cream?" Bam! It magically appears! "Salivating for some chicken noodles?" Kabam! Sitting in a bowl in front of you! Mom is grateful for it. She told me so. She did.
Plus, Jon and Patsy were the t-bone elves over this past weekend... Poof! We woke up on Sunday and there were t-bones and potatoes of delight (you guys better go bid on those ribs, b/c you have no idea what you're missing).
Clearly, mom is the central hub for food in our families. Potatoes and cookies are our bond and glue.
As if you're not hungry enough by now, just a reminder that today's silent auction is over at 4 pm CT! I hear it's been a huge, smashing success and will bring lots of much needed support to this insane few weeks and months ahead of us.
Hoping everyone is enjoying a nice, pre-summer day. Enjoy these pics of the silent auction, too.
