I'm a guest blogger!

Thanks to Facebook, I've been able to reconnect with old friends from school. I love that!! How fun is it to catch up on the years we missed, "meet" their children, etc.

One of the friends I've reconnected with is Angie. She's a beautiful woman, inside and out, has a beautiful family and loves God!

She recently asked me to be a guest blogger for her inspiring blog the front porch. I hope you'll swing by for a few minutes and enjoy the view from the front porch!

Catching Up

So often, I think about sitting down and updating my blog, but...something always gets in the way. Most often, it's exhaustion or my 3 year old. LOL

This has been such a difficult year for our family. We lost 5 family members in 7 months, including my father-in-law at the end of May. He fought a great battle in the war on prostate cancer, but God called him home. Every single family member we've lost has left a void in our lives that at times, has felt too great to overcome.

We moved here in the summer of 2010 to help care for my father in law. My house remains undecorated for the most part...unpacked...a bit unsettled. Little by little, I'm getting my mojo back and can't wait to make this house a home!

My baby girl turned 3 in July and is now attending preschool and just thriving. She is doing great!

In Sept. & Oct. my mom was in the ER 5 times and hospitalized for about 2 weeks or so total, then went to a nursing home. She is battling emphysema. She is back home now and we're hoping she'll get stronger and live a full life.

Life goes on...and God is still good! Hope to catch up with all of you ASAP!! Hugs to each of you!
