Little Slow with Posts

I have yet to become a daily blogger. Please forgive me. With two weeks to go before baby #3 arrives, it's been a bit crazy at our house. Between my husband starting up his business, my daughter turning 3, my 1 year old son learning how to take his pants and diaper off at naptime, a little nesting taking place, and company coming in from out of town, it's been a bit nuts to say the least. Hope to be back with y'all soon!


  1. Oh I really would like to have to have your wall art...would you consider making one and selling it?

  2. Andrea, take a break! We will be here when you get back.

  3. Oh Andrea,
    Thank you SO much for your loving comment on my page. You have no idea how my heart connected with you as you described the pain you felt while losing your father. It's just an awful experience, isn't it? Especially while trying to transition into a new parent yourself, at the same time. I'm not sure how unbelievers do it. The only thing that kept me going during all of it was relying on God's love, mercy, and grace. He is such a loving Father. I still miss her. I still have hard days, but He is ALWAYS there to take the pain for me. I think one of the hardest things I went through was exactly what you described about "losing precious moments with your child" during the whole ordeal. I carried so much guilt around with me over that. I don't think I allowed God to take that from me until my son was well over a year old. I struggled with feeling like I wasn't there for him emotionally the first half of his little life. I was so consumed with thoughts of my mother, I didn't even have the time to enjoy a lot of his "firsts". So thank you for being so open with your own struggle in losing a parent to cancer. It's comforting to know there ARE people out there who know EXACTLY how you feel. It touched me to talk with you about it. I too look forward to following your blog. If you don't post for a bit because of the new addition, I don't think we'll hold it against you! We'll be waiting when you get back. Email anytime you might want to talk.

    Many blessings to you, friend :-)

    P.S. Sorry for my super long comment too!
