This past! Doesn't it seem like every time we decide we are going to "work on" a certain area in our life the Lord puts us to the test? Sometimes I just have to sit back and chuckle. The past few weeks have been a little trying to say the least.

I am trying to cling to the nice weather, to remember Spring is here, we leave for Disney in 7 days....and there are so many more blessings. With this comes so many many tough thoughts. Thoughts about Ryder. Thoughts about how our life would be. Thoughts about what I would be doing. Thoughts about how he would act. (not thoughts about what he would look like because I have his identical twin looking at me ALL DAY EVERY DAY)

This past week a groomsman from my sister's wedding took his own life. 27 and recently's just horrible. I try not to say the famous "I can't imagine" words anymore because I am pretty sure I said that I couldn't imagine losing a child and now I am living that "I can't imagine," but wow. When these things happen they just stop you in your tracks. They make you try not to "sweat the small stuff" and be thankful.

As this week approaches I am going to be thankful. I am going to try to be content. I am going to sit back and breath the Spring air. I want to enjoy what the Lord has blessed me with here on this Earth.


  1. Oh my! So sorry to hear about your friend. My prayers will be with his family and wife. So important to be thankful!

  2. We weren't able to go home for the funeral, but we're just sick over this. Horrible, horrible, horrible, and I can't imagine. I ache for Kelli and his parents. :(

  3. So sad! Will be praying for all the lives affected by this tradegy. Hope you guys have a fun, safe trip. ENJOY!

  4. That is so sad. I'll be praying for them. I know how hard it is to see someone so young lose a life. It's testing a lot to say the least. Lots of hugs for you too!

  5. Girl, I feel ya on this one! Prayers for y'all during this season of "tests!" I like to remember that God uses the Springtime to make all things new! :)


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
