Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It's learning to look past life's imperfections

Another 1st to Celebrate!

Some of you know our family went thru some challenges these past 3 years that  changed our perspective of what is really important.  I’ve shared fears & tears, asked for prayers and you’ve celebrated each milestone with me.  So I felt it only fitting to share a major reason to celebrate.

But, so you understand the changes….

  1. I am so happy for you. You are so strong and a model for others. Keep up the good work and we will keep thinking good thought about your daughter.

  2. Her picture made me cry. I'm praying now, but thanking the Lord for the healing and happy tears and that you know where the healing came from! So happy for you. And I remember when I first read about her cancer and offered to pray for her. I think that's when I became a fan of your blog and it's been wonderful to read about you, your family, your life.
