I just want to start this post with “thank you” I was completely taken back this morning as I checked my email to find an overwhelming response to yesterday’s post. There were so many encouraging messages in my inbox whether from my blog, FB messages, or actual emails. I was so blessed by each and… Read More


So, I spent the end of last week getting ideas together for future posts dealing with differences. I had every intention of using this week to work on those… But then the weekend came… And reminded me what this week might hold for me.   Exactly one year ago today, I sat in a hospital… Read More


So, I’m guessing you figured it out by the title, but  I’ve been giving my blog the “silent treatment.” The last few months have been like a roller coaster ride!

WARNING:  This is going to be a long post.This means if you’re like me, and you don’t read many blog posts that are over 300 words, you may not want to start this one. 🙂 Let me start by saying “Thank You.” Thank you to the thousands who have been praying for our family. I… Read More


This song was written by a mother (along with her husband) who carried her baby 34 weeks knowing the baby would not live soon after birth. I may never listen to it again because it is so hard for me to listen to without getting crazy emotional, but the words are so close to my… Read More
