[ a sigh of relief ]

JUST OVER a week ago we woke up to an email telling us that everything back home wasn't ok. Nothing can compare to that feeling in the pit of your stomach when you are overseas, worried and you just want to be with your family. After about 24 hours of travelling, we were finally back in our hometown and after a fairly stressful week, I'm so relieved to say that thanks to medical miracles and lots of prayers, it looks like everything is going to be ok.

Thanks so much for all of your loving comments and emails - your thoughts and prayers have meant so much to me and I feel truly blessed to have such wonderful friends like you.... And if you have parents living nearby, give them a big hug today.
