This is truly a small world we live in!  I was doing my grocery shopping in town and ran into a familiar face.  Now we've been here long enough that that is not terribly uncommon, but this face didn't quite belong.  It was a face from the past: Nurse Theresa.  When I was in high school I worked as a CNA at a local assisted living facility specializing in dementia.  One of the nurses there was an inspiration, Theresa put compassion before the schedule and kindness before hastiness.  She was one of the people who really encouraged me to get my nursing degree and believed that I would make a good nurse.  She was a Christian and a poet and I still have one of the poems she wrote as a bookmark in my Bible.
And now, 10 years later, I run into her at the grocery store!  She had moved to southern Alaska and gotten married and was just in Fairbanks for a class her husband had to take!  We talked about our lives in general, but I am kicking myself now that I didn't tell her what an inspiration she had been to me!  So if ever Nurse Theresa happens across this page: thank you!

I have been unsuccessful in finding my favorite tea at the store for months now and came to discover why.  Good Earth changed their packaging!  Now my frustrations have ended! =)  They can't do that to me, I shop by color and design, not actual words, silly people.

Fynn's doing better in the car and pushed another pearly white out today(3rd, bottom right).  He's still not crawling forward, but manages to scoot around quite effectively despite that fact.  I catch myself saying, "how'd you get over there?" frequently these days.  I just got to playing with one of his (sort of goofy) photos today...

  1. I couldn't find my favorite tea for weeks too!!! I think I stood in the tea aisle and studied that box for a good 10 minutes before I realized it was just a changed package. Glad to know we've both been reunited with our Good Earth again. :-)
