Hello SWEET Friends! I'm on our couch, buried under two of my favorite little men of all time! (And sitting next to another- that'd be my hubby of course!)

I've been meaning to update before now.. I'm terribly sorry that I haven't! We made it through the holidays and it seems that we're falling back into our new "norm". There's a lot to yack about, and YACK I WILL.. It just won't be tonight.

I didn't want to keep putting it off. Some of you, my AMAZING & PRECIOUS friends, have started worrying & I didn't want to let that keep going. I PROMISE I'll do a "real update" soon... Until then, I want you all to know we're okay. The holidays were hard, but it does seem that getting the first of the year behind us has really helped.

Oh, I've been checking my email from my phone and I'm SURE I've overlooked a lot.. However, it's still all online and I'll read it all soon. (I actually got online the other night for the first time since I don't know when... I had a total of 1000 emails! Granted, most of it's junk.. I've got a lot to sift through. All of that to say that I know some of you have emailed and I've failed you mail you back. Again, I'm sorry! I hope to get back in my "groove" again really soon! I hate that I worried you, but love that you care enough to!

Thanks again (SO MUCH) for keeping up with us.. We CERTAINLY APPRECIATE your prayers more than I could ever say!!!!

I hope to "see" you soon...

Okay, feel MUCH better now. Glad to know you are okay, though I don't think on this earth you will ever feel totally will be when you are reunited with your son and in the presence of Jesus. Anyway, I was afraid when you hadn't e-mailed that I had offended you somehow. Lots of prayers and hugs coming your way.

THANK YOU FOR THE UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Kept getting more and more concerned when there wasn't any news on either page!
These words never cease to amaze me...praying so from Seattle right now!
Job 19:25-27 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.

I do keep checking on you but know that life get's busy. Glad to see your doing well. Don't feel bad about keeping us waiting. Your family is definitely a bigger priority than blogging. Hang in there. :)

I'm new to your blog and have enjoyed my visit. I will definitely return. You have an obvious sweetness about you. It must be the presence of the LORD. I'm so sorry in the loss of your son and your little one in heaven as well with him. They are both in the arms of our LORD and I will pause and pray for your precious family.

I was moved by what I read in your profile and what I see on your blog. God bless you.

We have such amazing eyewitness testimony of Jesus and just a fraction of what He did while He was visibly present here on earth. Look only to Him! Praying!
1 John 1:1-4 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.
