I love to craft, that is not a secret, but I do not profess to be especially good. So when my friend Stacy (and friends) at Little Birdie Secrets offered up a card swap I jumped in with 2 feet, then I remembered........... I don't make cards, GULP! But here is what I came up with.

Yesterday was a pretty down day for me. My denial of my mom having cancer finally came to an end and I felt very weak, emotionally, mentally and physically (I had no will power). (She started her latest round of chemo which will make her hair fall out, got a port put in her chest which is the next step before she starts the stem cell transplant. Or so I think, so many details!) But today I feel hopeful. Perhaps it is because I woke up to a beautiful light dusting of snow, which looks heavenly. Or maybe because I made the kids a healthy and aesthetically pleasing breakfast of scrambled eggs, bananas and blueberries. Not sure, but I know the Lord will never give us anything that we can't handle. I just have to have faith and do my part. There is purpose in all things!

Let me repeat that, I am NOT a cook. That doesn't mean I don't cook, or that we don't have meals every night as a family, we do, but they are usually very simple. So when I see a recipe and it has a million ingredients I usually say forget it. For a while now I have been wanting to make lettuce wraps (like PF Chang's), but the recipes always call for SO many ingredients, most of which I do not like. So last night I took the plunge and only used the lettuce, chicken, premade store bought sauce, bean sprouts and carrots and voila!!! It was tasty too! I think it may be healthier as well, at least that is what I am hoping!

This is what I saw when I sat up in bed this morning. So pretty! And this time I can enjoy it. Starting about 3 weeks ago or so, it started snowing here in the Seattle area, like crazy! Usually it will melt in a day or two, but this year it has lasted for weeks. Which any other year I would LOVE and embrace, but we were in the middle of trying to close on the house and move. Not a good time for snow. So unfortunately we never got to enjoy the massive amount of unusual snow we got this year. So to see a little bit of it this morning makes me a smile. It's almost like a do over.
