A lot has happened in your week for sure. The party decor was beautiful and that cake...OH My... I bet it tasted as good as it looked. Your lists always bless me T.J. I am so happy your mom is feeling better. When we have a difficult day or two...it is hard to look ahead to see the blessing waitng. But then...like the smile on your face at the pary...there it is... and all the worry, fears and frustrations are behind you.
