I'm blessed!

Just wanted to say how very fortunate I feel to be surrounded by so many friends who walk this journey of life by my side. This past week has been a pretty tough one physically but I've felt incredibly supported through it by people who care and who have been praying for us. This was my 3rd miscarriage - the most painful one physically, but the most peaceful one emotionally. I know it's because people prayed for us. I'm a pretty tough cookie, but this one just about knocked me off my feet. Thanks to all who sent emails, wrote notes, sent Facebook messages... it means a lot to have you walking by my side.

I am indeed very blessed.

Here are a few pictures of one of the biggest blessings in my life:

Playing with his Tonka Airplanes...

These last two pictures are for my Tante Elfriede in Germany, who checks my blog from time to time. ("Tante Elfriede loves us!") We've got a old trunk from my Mom's side of the family sitting under the window in Ben's room. Ben's got a nap blanket on it and enjoys sitting and reading there from time to time. Last week he was going through some books and I took some pictures. Today my Mother saw the photos and told me that she and her sister had been talking on the phone last night and Tante Elfriede had mentioned "Haeschen Schule" ("Bunny School") - the same book that Ben is reading here in this photo. It was such a coincidence that I just had to post these photos here for my Tante Elfriede. :)

In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
