It's been 9 months today since Mom went to Heaven. While being on vacation I have had a lot of time to think and reflect on this long and difficult year. On the car ride to the beach we listened to a church series on Heaven entitled "Paradise." It compared Heaven to a Beach Vacation and talked about how we should look forward to Heaven just as we look forward to our Summer Vacations. This helped to remind me that Mom and Dad are now getting to enjoy Paradise for eternity and one day we will get to experience that with them. If this Resort we are staying at this week can advertise as Paradise then I can only imagine what Paradise in Heaven will be like.

This picture made me think of angels and my Mom looking down on us from Heaven.
I am married to my wonderful husband of almost 10 years, Tadd. We have two beautiful daughters, Ella Faith who is almost 5 and Sophie Sue who is 2. We are also expecting our son, Seth Benjamin sometime in November. I started this blog as a way to keep up with pictures and events in our lives with 2 busy little girls. I work very part-time as a Social worker and enjoy helping people. My husband is an Engineer and also works hard with me at home. One day I hope to turn this blog into some type of scrapbook for my kids. We love God and are involved with our church. Our goal is to raise our family focused on God and all of the hope and joy he brings us even during tough times.
