I have one more picture to add but I can't find it. Gram can't be left off this list of favorite people who always heart dance with me.

Playing this game...
(Harvest Moon Animal Parade)
trying to get this man...
(Calvin the archaeologist)
to ask me out on a date!
(which he did)
It was exhausting, let me tell you. I don't think I moved from the couch, except for bathroom breaks, from Friday - Sunday night!

A year ago today, February 6, 2012, I had my ACL reconstructive surgery. Here's a look back. Notice how many events in my life involved crutches. I was so ready to burn those things by the time I was able to walk without them. I still have scars on my sides from the skin being rubbed raw. The body is an amazing work of art in its ability to form new growth and heal. Help from loved ones didn't hurt either. Thank you, God, for a knee that works!
And so it begins
My (painful) constant companions
Christmas play and crutches
Joey's funeral and crutches (Michigan)
Universal Studios and crutches (Florida)
Disney and crutches
Furniture placement and crutches
Popcorn and crutches
My (less painful) constant companion
One year later

I had many full, busy days last week. I helped celebrate my momMA's birthday, met with a foster care/adoption agency, went to watch a special cheerleader, babysat my favorite "Things," and slept a lot. From the reaction of my WA parents, I gave new meaning to the phrase "death warmed over." I will be glad when I'm back to normal health and some of the unknowns are dealt with. In the meantime, I'm thankful for people to love and activities that occupy my time. Here is a peek into my life...events and pictures that make me smile and a song that has taken up residence on the repeat cycle in my brain.
Look at those gorgeous eyes!
Thumb sucker...he steals my heart
Love these two
Such a big girl...using her own fork
And then there's this method of feeding one's self
My cuddle buddies when the babies are in bed
Gift from a student
February already (and a reminder of Gram)
