I so appreciate your powerful words of encouragement, friends – through loving comments here, separate emails and texts. I took Ayo and my cares to the mountains this morning, to start the week off by doing some things I love, namely being outdoors, having time to reflect and spending time with my son. It’s undeniably a gift to be able to be in the foothills (the start of the Rockies) within 20 minutes of leaving our home and back by naptime. Ayo sang the whole way. Every single day, that kid reminds me of all the many blessings in my life. Local friends are helping me fill the rest of my week with activities. They rock.
