It was recently pointed out to me, however, that since many of you know me only through this particular blog, my life might seem kind of dreary. You've been getting to read only about medical updates and what God's been teaching me through my cancer treatment. But really, there's so much more to my life right now. And in between every chemotherapy treatment I get about a week and half to live normally! And that includes some pretty great things.
Like the free weekend away we were given! Terry and I got to go to Coldspring, Texas (near Cleveland) and spend a weekend in a Sunday house.
Terry and I told the kids bye a few Fridays ago and drove an hour and a half to Coldspring. We arrived at the purple house to see this sign:
Inside the house is gorgeous and has so much extra space that we're looking forward to bringing our boys with us next time.
We visited the town shops and Lake Livingston, but mostly we enjoyed hiding out. We slept in late, watched movies and did a lot of reading. It was so nice and relaxing. The owners are wonderful and they provided us with homemade chicken salad, plenty of snacks, and two gift certificates to local restaurants. We enjoyed the weekend so very much!
