On days like today -- Easter -- I often am amazed that I can feel so emotionally connected to something I really can't understand or define even... This morning I really didn't want to go to church. I wanted to stay home and get our Easter lunch ready. I was just going to go to the Easter service and go through the motions that I don't really understand anymore...

I went because I couldn't NOT go to the Easter service. 

As I approached the sanctuary, I felt myself resisting... But I went anyway. And, I could tell when I sat down that emotions were gonna be a part of the service for me and I didn't want that.

The music started. One of the songs was "See What a Morning." I knew it was gonna get to me. 

And, it did. The tears just started rolling down my face. Couldn't stop 'em. Couldn't explain 'em... Didn't want to. I just let it all wash over me. 

I think it's strange to be so moved by something I can't really explain, but it happens.

A few months ago, I was a guest blogger on Willow's blog. So, I came home today and re-read it 'cause it's so mind-boggling to me...

I don't get it...  I just know it's way down deep inside of me...even when I fight it.

Happy Easter, world. 
Many blessings.

Quick little update:

So far, this week, I believe it's fair to say that Harv has felt less awful than last round of chemo... But he still hasn't had a lotta fun. Slightly fewer digestive issues and a good bit more nausea. 

The doctor adjusted some of the premeds this time in the hopes of helping with digestive issues from last time. There is another work around that I think Harv will try next time... 

He's disconnected from the pump and that always feels better. I think he'll start to feel more like himself either later today or tomorrow.

This weekend we celebrate our 18th anniversary. We're gonna treat ourselves to dinner and a night away at The Willows Inn. I'm very excited about the whole thing, but the foodie part of me is almost giddy! 

Thanks for checkin' on us. We love you.

Tomorrow Harv has another round of chemo. Last time, it wasn't very much fun. While he didn't actually get sick, he did have more nausea.  He also had some digestion issues which were not very much fun.

He had an appointment with his Bellingham doctor on Friday and they're gonna switch up some of his pre-meds in hopes of making things easier on him. The doctor said that sometimes changing it up could either be more unpleasant or it could be unpleasant in a different way.

I'm praying that it'll just be plain ol' better and easier on him. Would appreciate it if you'd pray for that, too.

Thanks so much!
Lots of love to you.
