I'm still here!

The last 4 weeks have gone by way to fast! A great trip to Disney, the beach, sick kids, sick mom and dad, sick kids, 3rd grade science projects, String of Pearls meetings and trying to sleep, eat, play, give kisses and do laundry!
The last month several of the families I have been working with for String of Pearls have had their babies and Pearl has a few new friends in heaven. Please pray for Josie's mom and dad, Savannah's mom and dad and Isaac's mom and dad. The grief is so raw for these families....takes me back to the raw times for us and then I remember it doesn't take much for me to go back to that place. I am thankful for time and thankful for the reminders of my sweet baby. She is making a difference to so many families...I am proud to be her mama!
So many thoughts swirling around in my head now...the words won't come out though! I know the words will come eventually!
PS- L was not so happy with all the big furry characters at Disney! R was a good protector!

It sounds like our families are just the same one but living on opposite sides of the world!

I hope you are all recovering well Laura. We will pray for those sweet families :)

I am sure Pearl is proud to call you her Mama :)

Much Love

Oh LJ, how good to see your chilluns at DLand. Close to the 'hood' where I grew up! So glad everyone had a blast. Lucy's expression is priceless. No one is surprised that Roark is the Protector! What a big brother. Oliver and Zoe light up the place as always. Glad you are still healing.

Love for always ~ care
