I can't believe it is Sunday night already. The weekend flew by once again and I am busy preparing for the week ahead. Both kids are sleeping (Dad too) and I can only hear the hum of the dishwasher and the washer/dryer. With Noah - the hurricane Ackerly - in bed I can finally start to pick-up the house after quite a busy and messy weekend. Cecily is sleeping, too. She had an up and down weekend so we're just hoping that tomorrow brings a better day. She is so tough and watching her struggle and shudder with pain is something that no parent should have to witness. It just makes us want to fight harder to ensure she has the happiest, best start possible. Noah continues to cheer Cecily on and he is first in line to stop her from crying. He offers her his hair to pull, or his hand to hold and the interaction between them is priceless. It is an inspiration to us on days when life appears less than inspirational.
Well that's the laundry buzzer. Time to get back to it! Thank you to the supporters of Cecily's Closet for voting! I know it seems like a long-shot... but anything worth having is worth fighting for. We got a rejection letter this week for a 10K grant so we'll just continue to beat the drum and look for opportunities here, there and everywhere! Onwards & upwards!
