Thank goodness for a quiet night. I want to let all of my followers know that my heart goes out to those who have lost so much in these terrible storms. Last night I couldn't sleep with the anticipation of more headed our way. We were blessed that they did not hit our area as bad as ones a few days ago. Overall, we have been very lucky with no significant damage. Trees that have fallen have been away from our home- which is very lucky considering our home is surrounded by all trees. Most of our property is wooded, so everyday I am picking up limbs!! It is unnerving though to lay in the bed and think, are we next?? I can't remember such a violent weather pattern and I hope it will pass quickly. To those of you who have lost loved ones, you are in our thoughts and prayers. Take care and a peaceful night to all!!

One year ago today Hank and I were given the most precious gift that God could have given us -our son!! It is hard to believe that it has been one year since this beautiful boy has been in our lives- it seems like forever! It's amazing how a child can change your life. And as you moms (and dads) know that even through the temper tantrums, the tears and all the ups and downs, nothing is more precious than a child. A friend sent me the sweetest note a while back with a saying: "My day is complete. I have heard the laughter of a child." How true. Blessings to all of you who follow my blog and leave such sweet comments about our dear Jared.
