… that fear and faith cannot coexist.
… that the victim mentality could easily be my downfall. I am not a victim, I have been blessed beyond measure.
… that embracing life for what it is is not a one time event.
… that you make the choice to LIVE everyday to it’s fullest – every day, sometimes more than once a day. Sometimes more than that.
… that there are some people who will never be okay with who you’ve become over time, but also that your heart doesn’t need to lose love over it. The people who love you for who you are are the ones that matter in the end.
… that memories are like sweet raindrops from heaven. When they fall, the tears come so easily, but somehow they are still so refreshing.
… that the world would be a better place if only chocolate grew on trees. #Willawonka
… that our son was designed by God with a special dose of happiness because he was always meant to be our rainbow baby. I’ll admit that’s a bitter pill to swallow because it also means that Jenna was somehow always meant to die, but there’s just no other way to describe it. He is exactly what we need.
… that spontaneity in life is a must. It keeps life interesting :)
… that Heaven manifests itself in the smallest and sometimes ridiculous ways – when you least expect it. The other day I was pulling into our driveway from the grocery store. I had tons of things to pull out of the car, a super tired kid in the carseat ready to jump out and there it was! A hummingbird! I have never… never… seen a hummingbird in our sad looking shrubs in the front yard. I was paralyzed and wonderstruck (thank you Taylor Swift for that word, it’s awesome).
… that the beach could be my home if only I had the moooola.
… that time is my enemy. In one short month my son will be two. When did he become this toddler that is anxious to form real words, play in the mud and chase birds? It happened right under my nose. I am pretty sure I am going to cry on his birthday.
… that Still Standing is going to be amazing. We have gained so much outside support on this thing and I seriously can’t wait to see the magazine go live.
