Hiking

Snow Covered Seneca Trail

This photo is of the Seneca Trail (ie: not anywhere nearby), but closely resembles the scene this afternoon when Husband & I took a walk in the national park near our home. It was just barely flurrying & we had a wonderful time. We saw four whitetail deer on the edge of the road & the hawks that live in the park soared overhead looking for lunch. I think we shall be taking more walks together in the near future.

FIL Update

My MIL is currently starting the paperwork needed so my FIL can receive hospice care. He suffers with several different diseases, but they think the one that shall claim his life is metastatic lung cancer. We don't have an estimate on how long he has left. Hubby will drive the kids down to see the family Saturday morning & return the same day since I have responsibilities at church that day.

I'm so sorry to hear about your FIL. We lost my grandfather to metastatic lung cancer a little over a year ago. You and yours are in my thoughts and prayers.

What a difficult time for your family, Amanda. It never matters how prepared we are for these things, they're still painful. You guys remain in my prayers.

Your walk with hubby sounds delightful. I'm looking forward to this spring when I can get around and get some walking/hiking/biking in. For now it's the treadmill, though.

I can't wait until it's warm enough to get outside with Viv again.

So sorry to hear about your FIL. I hope the kiddos are holding up OK.

Thanks very much for the hugs & sympathy everyone. We're all in a bit of a shock as I'm sure you can imagine.
