Faith Sustains

When everything else has been torn from us, we are left with nothing but our faith. It is our faith that sustains us. It is our faith that strengthens us. It is our faith that gets us through each day. In the last seven months I have had everything I hoped for, dreamed of, and… Continue reading Faith Sustains

Our Story

My husband, Patrick, and I met on August 22nd, 2010.  We both quickly realized that this was different than any other relationship that had come before.  We fell in love fast and were engaged in April of 2011.  We got married on the… Continue reading Our Story

Summer Fun

A couple months ago I posted our Summer Bucket List. We've been steadily checking things off. We are doing our best to make the most out if this summer despite it being quite different than we had planned. We have been to several Royals games. We even got to see one of our photos up… Continue reading Summer Fun

In Flames

  Thursday night as I watched my husband light fireworks, sparks flying in different directions and colors I couldn't help but wonder what those fireworks looked like from Heaven.  I'm sure the view is pretty amazing.  I watched the smile on Patrick's face and my heart ached.  He would be such a good daddy.  Later… Continue reading In Flames

Fear and Panic

This week has been so emotional and it's not over yet... Monday night I decided that I was going to go get a long overdue haircut and even add some highlights - I was feeling the need for a change. While at the salon, I discover that my stylist is about 7 months pregnant.  Awesome.… Continue reading Fear and Panic

It’s Awful, I Know

Is it awful that I kinda hope she really did have it?  Okay, I know it is.  But honestly, now that her baby is here and healthy and… Continue reading It’s Awful, I Know

A Letter to My Husband

Dear Patrick, I know this is not at all how we expected this year to be. We made plans. We dreamed. We prayed. We hoped. I am so very sorry that this is how it is.  I wanted nothing more than to see you holding your son on your very first Father's Day.  I know… Continue reading A Letter to My Husband

Another Broken Holiday

I'm dreading next Sunday.  For anyone who knows me, it is no secret that I have never enjoyed Father's Day.  I've written about the broken - non-existent relationship between my father and me multiple times.  The shorthand version is this:  My mom met my dad in Texas.  They got married.  My dad then proceeded to… Continue reading Another Broken Holiday

Love Wasted

Tomorrow I'm supposed to go see a counselor.  This isn't the first time I've made an appointment.  I keep making them and then canceling them, because well I don't really know why.  I get scared of what they will tell me.  I'm afraid they'll tell me I'm crazy and need to be on some kind… Continue reading Love Wasted

Home

Last summer when I first heard the song Home by Phillip Phillips, I fell in love with it.  The song had heavy radio play the whole time I was pregnant with Joshua. I would sing along each time, and I loved feeling Joshua kick and move around as I sang.  I figured he either enjoyed… Continue reading Home
