A blog about us. our lives. our struggles. our victories.

Rob and Anne-marie

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 […]

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 […]

As 2018 winds down, Rob and I sat down to reflect what this past year has looked like. And more importantly, we wanted to document things we never want to forget from this past year. I’m not a scrapbooker, we rarely print pictures. Social media documents our progress and this blog knits the highs and […]

A single grain of wheat will never be more than a single grain of wheat unless it drops into the ground and dies. Because then it sprouts and produces a great harvest of wheat—all because one grain died. I’ve been thinking on those words for a few days now and what they mean in our […]

Ok, so I know the last blog was about making it to the mountain top, and yes, the metaphors that go along with that and our life are poignant, but it dawned on me, that mountains still have rocky terrain. You’ve got the view and perspective of where you’ve been when you get to the top, […]

Four years ago, if you told me that we’d travel to another country WITH Reagan, I’d say you’re crazy. But here we are, on top of mountains, doing things we never even dreamed our family could partake in. This trip is exceedingly, abundantly more, than we could have ever imagined. Guys, there’s snow, in JULY! […]

One Year Ago. Part 2. Exactly one year to the day. Do you ever have those moments where your whole heart breaks in two for your child? It’s happened a lot, but this past weekend I realized I needed to up my parenting game on the spot. It wasn’t just any teachable moment, it was […]

Ever feel like you’re just surviving and hanging on by a thread? Yet somehow you muster enough strength to get to the end of the day, collapsing at the finish line, staying asleep there, only to wake up at the beginning of the race come morning? This feels like my current life stage, it’s my […]
