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 ...

"Just Because"

Yesterday Aaron received a special surprise at work. Aren't they beautiful (even if they weren't exactly what was ordered)!
A certain family member (not me) sent them to him "just because".

Just because:
- he's a great guy.
- he's kind, generous, talented, and simply amazing.
- he's started a new job.
- that job was a promotion.
- his new cubicle isn't decorated yet.
- he's alone in a new town.
- he misses his family and probably secretly wonders if anyone misses him.
- he feels torn between being productive at work and the relocating process.
- just because.

What a kind "unexpected act of kindness"! Thank you, person, for bringing a smile to my husband's face!
