We recently finished our basement, where we installed a wood burning fireplace. Because yesterday was such a cold yucky day, Ethan decided that it was the perfect time to try it out. Fortunately, my kind bro in-law Dave came over to help us figure it out. You may not think it was rocket science, but you would be surprised.
It was fun to see the boys so enthralled with watching the fire, their inner caveman came right out. I swear that their voices went a little deeper, and they let a few "Tim the tool man Taylor" grunts out. Men and women truly are different from the get go.
It is great to know that there is an alternate source of heat in our home, and it is even nicer to know that we are surrounded by kind, loving family members that are always there willing to lend a helping hand. Thanks Dave.
This is the story of one woman's navigation through grief following the loss of her true love, and husband of almost eleven years. Questions of who am I now, questions of how to raise the kids alone, and leaning how to live again will be confronted, hopefully in a positive and meaningful light.
