continuing to pray and q+a

yesterday i took a break from blogging and observed a day of silence in honor of the lives lost in Newtown, CT. my heart still aches for the families that will grieve for the rest of their lives. for the other students from Sand Hill Elm. how will they ever feel safe at school again? how does a 6 year old understand that his best friend was murdered?

my hope for myself is that i wont just forget this in a few days. of course life has to go back to normal and other things will have to take the forefront, but i hope to always remember how blessed i am to have my son. to never forget that i am blessed to have a baby waking me up at 4am, i am blessed to have dirty bibs to wash and dirty bottles to clean, i am blessed to be able to sooth my crying child. i hope to never take these things for granted, because in their own small way, they are beautiful. i plan to continue to keep the Newtown community in my prayers and continue to do whatever i can to help.

another thing i am so thankful for and so blessed to have is my marriage to Beau.
i'm linking up again this week with Bethany at love the grows for his+hers q+a.

Her: i remember the night we met, it was a saturday, and i was planning to be home long before midnight but then we met and sparks flew and so i didn't want to leave Leslie's house. it was like 3am and i was telling him that i had to be up in 4hrs to teach sunday school and i remember him laughing and thinking i was joking at first. he was a bad influence ;)

About when did you know you were in love with your other half?
His: when you showed me that you'd do anything for me
Her: i knew i was more attracted to you than i had ever been to anyone after the first time we hung out. then i think the love grew gradually. i can't really think of a specific time that it hit me, but i do remember when i went to Panama City for spring break, every time we hung up the phone after talking i'd say i love you. and my friends hated me cause all i talked about the whole time was how i loved you.


  1. "my best move was to give you a high five." haha! so awesome. that's cute.
    and yes. it's so hard to think of the families that are grieving right now. while we can all go back to normal routine, their lives will never be normal again. moving on makes me feel guilty, so its wonderful to learn a lesson from this and to be ever grateful for our families and those that are still here with us.

  2. I love how he had so much to say about how you dress and then your answer- jeans and a tshirt. Made me laugh!
