What If…?

Posted on

So, I guess if you are reading this morning, you are still here on earth. Awesome! That means you aren’t done and the God who made you isn’t done with you, either.  Not “done with you” like you have a bunch of cleaning up to do type of “done with you” but, if God is […]

Year of Jubilee

Posted on

They say the 7th year is the year of Jubilee.  A year where debts are cancelled and everyone knows and breathes freedom.  A season of celebration. It’s been 7 years since our son Noah passed away.  God has already shown Jason and me how this year is going to be profound and special, though we […]

When Dreams Come True

Posted on

Jason and I took Dave Ramsey’s “Financial Peace University”class recently.  All I can say is literally every person should take this class at some point in their existence.  There would be no financial issues on this earth or in any government.  Just sayin’. That being said, one of our cash envelopes is set aside each […]

Birthday Eve

Birthday Eve

Posted on

I started a tradition after Noah died to take a picture of Emily on the day prior to her birthday.  Let’s just say it was my feeble attempt to make time stand still in the midst of her speedy growth cycle.  It’s been fun to look back over the years and watch her grow. Here […]

Thoughts on Dying and Living

Posted on

As I sat across my davenport from a friend, a fellow bereaved mum, I listened to her heart and shared her tears as she told the stories of losing 3 of her grown children.  I will not share her story because it is hers to share… One thing we talked about, though, was the “How?” […]

Noah's memory

Today is a Beautiful Day

Posted on

Husband got home last night from England. Saw two rainbows yesterday. Sun is shining hot and bright today. Going to make a great meal tonight that we eat outside on the new patio. Jason’s taking the day off. Em’s taking a half day off school. Giving Em a fresh pack of chewing gum…since Noah doesn’t […]

Avon Walk

I have cankles!

Posted on

Thank you, everyone, for the opportunity to walk for a cure! I truly do have cankles (swollen ankles), but there are worse things, right? And, you know how your great grandma’s feet have hundreds of broken capillaries…yeah, well, I’m not even a grandma, but apparently my feet didn’t get the memo! Our team was wonderful! […]

Friends are Good for the Heart

Posted on

We had no sunsets in Dallas, but the ‘physical’ therapy was well worth it. We got to spend some quality time with old friends that lost their dad/husband just one month before Noah died. We hadn’t gotten to be together, so hugging, crying and late night talks were on the agenda, along with good meals […]
