Tea for two . . .

So I woke up feeling eh today. I had to take Aiden down to the hospital because the area around his stoma had gotten worse, come to find out his has a yeast infection around the whole stoma site, and all under where the adhesive is for his ostomy bag. Well, the boys had give Kyle a rough time last night and he just wasn't able to comfort Aiden since Aiden was being a mommas boy. So Kyle brought Aiden up to me at 2:30am and I had been up ever since. I tried to get some shut eye at like 8am, so I set my alarm, and slept right through it. I had to be down at the hospital at 11, and I woke up at 9:40. UGH. Aiden still needed to be fed, and I needed a shower. So Kyle fed the boys and I took my shower and then I was on my way. When I got home I was exhausted and I told Kyle I was going to take a nap, for him to wake me a little before he left for work if I didn't wake myself. Well, at like 4:15 I heard the front door open and close, and I heard his car start up and drive away?!?!?!?! I wrapped myself in my comfy security blanket and came downstairs. I didn't hear the boys, but I heard EmmaJeans dog tags and thought she was getting into something. To my surprise, Erin love was here. Just sitting on my couch with a big smile on her face. When I get into a funk, like I have been the last few days, I usually don't like company, I don't reply to emails, I don't answer my phone, I don't answer my door. But here she was... sitting on my couch, there was no way I could turn her away. At that second when I saw her, I felt a warmth come over me. It was love. God love you Erin. Not only did she come to see me, but she brought me a present.
Oh a present!

Two of her tea cups, two saucers, two tiny tea spoons, a tea ball, two tiny candles, a cute basket, and a jar of sassafras! She shared her tea set sassafras, and her love with me this afternoon when I woke up. How nice to have a friend that will go out of her way to make you smile. I love you Erin <3
