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.

But then get up, and brush yourself off. With renewed determination, hold your head high. Refocus your attention on your goal ... and keep moving.
My seventeen month old gets it. Why do I, as an adult, sometimes get hung up on the hurts and lose sight of the rewarding goal?
