One Happy Girl

SH at her First Dance Class
She was soooooo happy!
I know that I am the weirdest parent.
When she did a shovel step, I started crying.
I am sure the other parents thought I was crazy!
One Happy Girl and One Proud Mommy! :)
*HG is loving gymnastics, so...
That makes...
Two Happy Girls and One Proud Mommy!

Our family has been blessed!

What a Difference a Year Makes!

A year ago, TODAY...

HG was in UAB Hospital having a heart procedure.

We were praying...crying...praying...praying...and praying.

God has been so FAITHFUL.


HG was turning flips and walking on the balance beam.

Our God is so GOOD!

Grace is defined as "unmerited favor."

I am so grateful for HIS Grace!

Our family has had a difficult few weeks.

My grandfather passed away last week.

I "thought" that I was prepared for him to be with God,



you cannot truly imagine how hard it will be.

The Lord continues to open my eyes and heart to Him.

Though I have been exposed to death, I have never realized the true miracle of death.

I am also more aware of the importance of PRAISING Him in the midst of the storm.

Our God is PERFECT in ALL He does!

My Heavenly Father has sent many precious jewels during this difficult time.

ONE of these jewels is...


We are DTC!!!

That means our dossier is on the way to China!!!

Another step closer to Charlie coming home!

Isaiah 61:3
"and provide for those who grieve in Zion- to bestow
on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the LORD for the display of His splendor."
