I'm a full-time wife and mom of two adorable boys. When I'm not busy trying to keep up with them I enjoy photography, traveling, planning parties and a little bit of reading.

In February of 2008 I was diagnosed with an incurable terminal lung illness, though God promised me a full and complete healing. While we wait for His timing, we're taking it one day at a time, and standing in awe of how God's using all of this for His glory. The tough road we've traveled has given us a new perspective on the fragility of life. Memories are more important to us than ever before. The goal of this blog is to share some of our family life - the ups and downs, the joys and probably some of the pains as well. It's mostly meant as a personal journal of sorts, but you're welcome to share in it. We'd like to take this opportunity to say ...

Her Morning Elegance

First of all, please note that I am not a YouTube junkie! I saw this video on someone else's blog - they're a stranger, actually. But I thought that it was beautiful - all the work that went into making it - the result is simply breathtaking. So, I posted it on Facebook last night.

This morning a friend left me a moving, heartfelt message in response. So, I took a second look at the video, and then looked up the lyrics to it. ... Now I know a second reason why it resonated so well with me. I heard the lyrics even though I didn't realize I heard them. (Wow!) ... Anyway - whether you wanna "go deep" or just be mesmerized by the beauty of the artistry - enjoy!

And to you, my dear, thank you for what you said. I'm not sure I really deserve it. But thank you. You brought tears to my eyes (in a good way).

This was so beautiful. And we are blessed in knowing you and knowing that you are fighting for your own life. God bless you through all those mundane activities that we seem to take for granted that we should all be so thankful for.
