Hello There!

I wanted to let you know that I am still alive. Life has been a bit crazy and to be honest I just didn't feel like I could take the time to blog. The next couple of weeks are going to be busy too, so you might not hear much from me then either. I do read all comments and my email, so feel free to contact me.

Thank You to each of you that prayed for my brother and his family. Prayers were definitely felt, but are still greatly needed. I was able to travel to Virginia for my sister-in-law's funeral. Tim and Naomi and Jeremy and Leigh also went. Mike stayed home with the 8 youngest so that they could be in the Musical at our church. I left on a Thursday Morning and came back on Saturday. It was a very quick trip, but it was so good to be able to be with family.

Debbie was such a sweet, caring, kind and loving person. Her presence will be greatly missed! My brother and his children are feeling that loss tremendously. Their youngest daughter is 16 and she was very close with her mom. My thoughts and prayers are with each of them. I have known Debbie since I was about 9. I had just turned 12 when Rick and Debbie got married. They use to drag me with them all over the place. They usually took me on vacation with them too! It is so difficult to say goodbye, but I look forward to the time that I get to see her again! Heaven will be so Sweet!

The one added bonus of traveling to Virginia was meeting my new great-niece Bethany Joy! Remember this post? Jon and Rachel also came up for the funeral so I was able to get my hands on her! She is the sweetest baby. She doesn't cry very much except when she is hungry. I couldn't get enough of her!


Me and Bethany. Isn't she sweet?

Please remember the ladies on the Pregnancy Prayer List. There are many who are approaching their due dates. Let's pray for quick, easy, and healthy deliveries! Also if you are pregnant and would like to be added to the list, please leave a comment or send me an email. I would love to add you!

I have our school stuff to get ready, organized and started, as well as a few other things, so I will update when I can!

That picture with sweet Bethany is a good reminder of the circle of life. Celebrating new life on earth while celebrating new life in heaven.

I think your pregnancy prayer list is so neat. Thank you for keeping track of these women and giving us names to pray over.
