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 ...

ever have one of those days (weeks/months)???

you're inside a warm, protective room
with plenty of gentle diffused light
there's a blizzard just on the other side of the glass
but you're safe and secure
the howling winds and biting cold don't touch you
the bitter world has no impact on you (today at least)
you should be grateful
you should be thriving

- but -

you long for something more
you miss basking in the warm glow of the Son
you miss feeling the gentle breeze (of the Spirit)
you want to deepen your roots
you want to branch out
you want alone time to think, read, and pray

you're yearning
