Today’s the day I’ve waited for, prayed for, hoped for for 2+ years. Today’s a good day, it just has to be. :)
To say I am nervous is the understatement of the century. But I’m bleeding with excitement. I have absolutely no idea what to expect tonight at our first meeting for the NICU volunteer group. I got an email about a painting project they’re working on in the New Year for something called “The Wall of Hope” (more on this later)… can you imagine my excitement!!!!!!!!
I will share anything I am able to share here, in case you want to carry the ideas into hospitals groups in your own area.
Other than that life is full of love, work, and everything in between.
My little man says ‘no’, he laughs when he farts and he adores his mama more than anything else in the world. I can’t really ask for more out of life :)
Jenna’s deep red rose bushes make me smile… they just look Christmasey…
You might find this last image sad, and it is… but still beautiful. Dana and I discovered this butterfly wing in my backyard one afternoon while we were out there with Bubby. There is something about butterflies lately…
We were talking about butterflies on a walk and Bubby just blurts out the word “butterfly” (best he could) like it was no. big. DEAL! And then… if you visit any Target, Hobby Lobby or Wal-mart… there are seriously so many butterfly ornaments to choose from.
It might just be a coincidence, and then again it might be a sweet glimpse of that other world as our hearts ache to hold them again this Christmas…
