I have 14 comments on one post and 4 followers! Woo hoo!  I feel like a celebrity... kind of. :)  I just wanted to check in quick and say thank you again to everyone!!! I can feel your prayers and support surrounding my family and I can't tell you how much it means to me.

I also want to thank Mrs. B over at Joy Beyond the Cross.  Her post was humbling, encouraging and so filled with love.  I was just floored when I read it.  If you haven't already, check out her inspiring, honest and love-filled blog when you get a chance.  She is one of the very first people my husband and I met when we moved here and we fell in love with her from the start!  She has always been one of our very favorite people.  Like she said, we don't talk/see each other often, but when we do it is like no time has passed.  When she found out we were engaged 4 years ago, she sent us a prayer book immediately. It had been months since we had seen her.  One of the many examples of her generosity and kindness!

Planning to write more soon.  It has been a good week.  Between appointments, life morphs back into a bit of normalcy for awhile.  The pain and fear is not at the surface, but buried just a bit deeper, making it a little easier to forget for awhile.  Prayers for all of you!!

Much love,


  1. I am so glad you are feeling lifted up by the prayers being said for your family. It never ceases to amaze me how awesomely powerful this community is!

  2. I'm a Third Order Carmelite, online friend of Joy Behind the Cross and fellow NICU Mommy! I promise to wrap you up in prayer over the coming months.

    The NICU is an incredibly beautiful and holy place. Do NOT be afraid! I've seen little ones healed like Lazarus. I've seen little ones die holy, peaceful deaths. God is in charge. God has a beautiful plan for this precious baby. You can do it! You can take this scary journey one step at a time in Faith. I promise you that it will end with exploding rainbows of joy and love.

  3. M. is pretty awesome! :) I'm glad that she and Rebecca "introduced" you. I've been thinking a lot recently about how no one can really know exactly what others are going through, but that it doesn't matter much, as long as we walk through it together. Know that I was praying for you and your family in Adoration yesterday!

  4. I'm glad to have found your blog and start getting to know you. Prayers are continuing for you and your family! This is a great community ... and anything I can do to help and support you, I will do.
