Happiness Journal

Yesterday as I was moving some furniture a photo of Abigail fell off of her “special things” bookshelf. Alice, with shear delight, ran over and quickly scooped it up as if it were a race to see who could get to it first.

“Abigail,” she said working out the sounds as they rolled out of her little mouth.

“Do you love your sister?”

She nodded her head yes and smiled.

“Where does your sisters live, do you remember?”

She looked at me and then looked up.

“Yes, they live in Heaven with Jesus and they love you so much.”

The connection Alice has with her sisters makes my heart happy.

Today over at Portland Moms Blog I wrote more of how Alice connects with her sisters in Heaven <3.

“Say Cheese!”

That is what I said right before I took this photo.

Their relationship makes me happy today.

Life has been extremely busy for our family the past few months. Starting next week everything slows down and I am taking a break and regrouping for the rest of the summer (more on that in a later post).

Until then, we are making the final preparation for the Love Rocks Run, which is happening this Saturday, and making sure these two are loved and cared for.

Soul Mates

best friends l and a

If you would have asked me this time last year about these two I would have rolled my eyes and asked you if you wanted a dog.

Over the past month something amazing has happened in our house, Alice and Linus have become best friends. Watching this relationship blossom has been so beautiful, especially because I never thought it would happen.

Today over at Portland Moms Blog I share about their relationship and how this little girl has successfully tamed our wild beast.

 

Naptime

alice linus sleepingI had big plans to write a post during naptime today and then I saw the laundry that needed to be folded.

Priorities ❤

Naptime is over and we are now in the midst of family time, Tom just got home. It’s beautiful here in Oregon so I think there is a walk to the park in our future. I can’t wait for the day I say that we will be walking to Anna and Abby’s Yard.

Soon ❤

Today I have a post over at Portland Moms Blog so lets just pretend I wrote that at naptime.

Deal? ❤

Happy Easter

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him.”  ~ Romans 15:13

Today I’m really emotional and extremely grateful.

He is Risen and through Him we have eternal life! I am so grateful for the love He shows me minute by minute and the hope He gives me in this broken life. I am extremely grateful for Heaven too!

Have a beautiful and blessed Easter! Happy Easter
