Rob and I have had this running joke, it’s a saying we’d often say in jest about how the next year would be so much better. We’d reflect throughout the year whenever something tough would happen, whether it be managing a hospital stay, business challenges, relationship challenges…whatever we were going through that we were having […]
It’s been a while since I’ve been here. Gosh, I guess my last post was in December of 2020. So much life has happened since then, for every single person on the planet. But tonight, is one night in a string of many, that I’ve been taken aback. When Reagan had her crisis over eight […]
“We often pray to be delivered from calamities; we even trust that we shall be; but we do not pray to be made what we should be, in the very presence of the calamities, to live amid them, as long as they last, in the consciousness that we are held and sheltered by the Lord […]
“Where do you want to put this?” Rob says as he removes the magnet from the ultrasound photo of our baby. “I don’t want to keep this on the fridge.” “Put it in my Bible,” I said. Rob thought to himself: “Yeah, that’s a good place for it. I want to keep it forever but […]
Have you ever felt the winds shift in your direction, in your favor and you think, “oh my gosh, it’s finally my turn, my time!” The winds changed for our family about a month ago when I got my first positive pregnancy test. Rob and I took a selfie with the tests to memorialize this […]
When Reagan was born, we were told to never let her get sick due to her GA-1 diagnosis. Sometimes I feel like the entire world just gave birth to a medically fragile child. Seven years ago, Rob and I become ultra aware of germs, being out in public, sanitizing, and protecting a baby with no […]
It’s the end of week one of “distance learning” which I, along with many other families have learned, appears to be full-time public school at home. A friend of mine alerted me to this article in the Orlando Sentinel where Florida’s current Department of Education commissioner praised Florida schools for their “quick move to online […]
Today was our first day of virtual/distance learning. I cried for 30 minutes, all before 10 a.m. I thought there would be “instruction” from our child’s teacher, but I’m learning, that may not be the case. New concepts will be taught in short video clips from the Internet or other teaching sources, and the bulk […]
I am not an overly anxious person. I do tend to worry, but I’m not prone to anxiety attacks or being paralyzed by fear. However, this coronavirus has made me freak out a little bit. So I am turning to God’s word to help guide my thoughts and actions. I started in Philippians 4:6-7 and […]
On December 12, 2019 I rolled up to the hospital, not ready and not completely willing, to check in for surgery. After being diagnosed with stage zero breast cancer in October, 2019, it felt like surgery was light years away, I even tried calling to move it up, but after Thanksgiving the date flew toward […]
Never miss a cute photo!
Here's some of our favorite moments.
