Early morning

May 18

The news station changed the air times for the broadcast; it aired at 6:45 and will air again at 9:10, then again in the evening broadcast.  Sorry if you planned your morning around it!  Brad and I both feel like she “got us.”  I sent an email to Storyteller (the woman who interviewed us) asking about a link for out-of-towners.  I will update this post if that is available.  It is weird to shedding my faceless identity for those of you who don’t know me in real life.

I woke up to Brad and Maren doing math on the couch downstairs.  He was working an Excel spreadsheet for work, and she was writing numbers for her own “work.”  Greta was still sleeping(!) so I got to go for a run.  It’s been a great day so far!

    I DVR’ed the whole darn Fox 19 morning show, so I’m certain to be able to “catch” it later! Glad your day is off to a good start 🙂

    Jen and Brad you are amazing! I felt inspiration, strength and most important love! As I am writing this I am watching Chris Spielman’s interview. The common threads of faith and endurancel are amazing. I read a book during my treatments by Fr. Jim Willig. He said “I don’t know what my future holds, but I do know who holds my future.” You will hold strong to that and will do every day well! I love that.

    Jen, a beautiful segment! Thanks for sharing. You looked beautiful and so full of God’s love. Claire loved seeing Maren on tv – she thought that was hot stuff! Have a wonderful day and weekend.

  6. Can’t wait to see the link when it is available. Awesome! And I’m still LOLing about the double clap. Too awesome. That’s not mean, that’s just FUNNY! Praying! God is using you in ways you can’t even imagine. I have chills.

    This quote, that I came across today, made me think of you…

    ” In the difficult are the friendly forces, the hands that work on us. Right in the difficult we must have our joys, our happiness, our dreams: there against the depth of this background, they stand out, there for the first time we see how beautiful they are.”

    –Rainer Maria Rilke

    Oh I do hope there is a link..or should I just double clap?? Jim and I hopefully will be closing on a second home in Port St. Joe, Florida, bay area. I guess there busy time is actually this summer. Wanted to let you and Brad know that you are welcome to use it with or without girls at anytime. It is 3 bedroom and I think 10 blocks from bay (can walk there in 10 minutes or less).

    Jen, it was fun to see you on tv. I agree that she captured you, Brad, and your family very well 🙂 Loved all the pictures.
