Tomorrow, March 21st, marks 3 years since we said goodbye to the sweetest, cutest, most fun, and lovable two year old nephew of ours. Three years ago on this day, and on my brother and sister-in-laws anniversary, they had to say goodbye to their firstborn son. The...

Today is my sweet and precious nephew's 5th birthday. However, we don't get to celebrate him like we wish we could. While he is having the party of a lifetime in heaven, we are doing what we can to honor him here on earth. I...

It is amazing how fast a year can go by and yet things feel as though they just happened yesterday. Tomorrow is the one year anniversary of our sweet little nephew going to be with Jesus.  It’s so easy to be overshadowed with grief and loss...

Sermons. They always help me in the trials. I have listened to this one 6 times over the last week. Because it made headline news many people know Rick Warren lost his son last year. This sermon, How We're Getting Through (starting at minute 10), was...

I was overwhelmed with all of the comments on my last post. I always reply by email, but haven't had the energy to, so please know how much all the prayers and sweet words meant. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! It's hard to know what...

Yesterday on my brother and sister-in-laws 5th anniversary our sweet Kai went to be with the Lord. The last two weeks have been a complete blur and although we don't understand why, it brings me so much peace that he is in heaven where there...

Kai's surgery went well. They removed 95% of the large tumor, which was the goal. He was sedated for the rest of the day after the surgery. They took his breathing tube out yesterday and put in a feeding tube. Today, he got out of...
