Donut You Worry - Week of May 4th

"A positive attitude gives you power over your circumstances instead of your circumstances having power over you." ~Joyce Meyer

Some days, you just need a 'pick-me-up' to brighten your outlook.

Jane received a unexpected text from Ms. Mary Jo to check our mailbox for a Cam surprise.  Imagine our amazement to find a delicious treat of homemade donuts from one of our favorite places, Heidi's Farmstand!  Even more sweet than the goodies was the handmade card from Mary Jo that read "Donut worry- I'll see you again!"  In a time when we have to stay disconnected from so many, the creative ways people are finding to connect are ingenious.

Father and son have both been missing their regular barber appointments.  Over the weekend, Chris decided he would have to take matters into his own hands.  After a few failed attempts, a plea for Mr. Steve's master clippers was called in.  Cam was a bit hesitant but finally decided he really needed his hair cut too.  Upon completion, we were all duly impressed with Chris' clipping skills and Cam was so relieved to have that longer hair short again.

On Saturday, Jane was blown away with Mother's Day gifts.  The first arrived from Oma and Opa- a delicious edible arrangement filled with fresh fruit, complete with a tasty chocolate heart!  Next, a beautiful bouquet of gorgeous flowers from Cam with a printed card "You are the best, you're wonderful and you're nice! Love, Cam"

Sunday, though, brought an extra special surprise for the actual Mother's Day occasion. Chris and Cam presented Jane with the coolest handmade gift!  It is controllable via an app on the phone to change colors and patterns.  It is now proudly displayed in Jane's office where it's calming effect brings a smile to her face during even the most difficult work meeting. And the fact that it is something she can look at every day from the two people she loves most in the world makes it completely priceless!

Camology Quotes:
Cam has recently found it very funny to call his parents by their first names.  We reminded him that the most special names we have- "Mom" and "Dad" can only be used because he is our son.  Perhaps he was feeling like he needed his mom to know he remembered this when he sent this photo message in a text during the work day.
~The heart in bottom left corner says ~
"I love you mom you are the best"  
*Incidentally, neither one of his parents taught him how to add the heart with writing and actually haven't yet done it themselves*
