Today as I was driving around running errands I began thinking...thinking about my friends and how truly wonderful they are. I feel so incredibly blessed to have friends who are still taking care of us...4 months later. I want each of you to know that it does not go unnoticed.

I often think of my time running or decorating :) with Amelia. And how she just lets me vent. Believe me, I know I go on and on and on. I even get tired of hearing myself talk. I can't imagine what she is thinking. But what a super friend to just let me talk her ear off...all the time. There are days I don't think I have much to say and then an hour later I am still going strong. I feel so blessed to have a friend with such a sensitive heart and open ears.

I think of Leslie who is by far the most wonderful sister in the world...the way she calls me several times a day to make sure I am doing ok, or texts me every morning to say hello, or how she is constantly sending me bible verses, or offering to come over and distract me for a while...I wonder how she ever gets any work done...for she is always worrying about me. Even when there is no need. I am so thankful for a sister who loves me more than I love myself at times.

I think of Kristi and the messages she sends me, the way she sits and lets me cry when I need to, the little cake she brought over to celebrate Wyatt with us, the way she was at our door within the hour we arrived back home and has continued to show up at our door, the way she encourages me and is on my side. I know she has a little one on the way and is so very excited as she very well should be....but I am so grateful that she has let me be excited with her and yet still so understanding of where I am. What a blessing to have a friend with such an empathetic heart and open arms.

Words cannot express how truly thankful I am for friends like these. I laugh at times and try to remind myself to be more cautious...I think at times I accidentally make it all about me...and while these friends have totally let me...I am totally aware that it is not all about me. So, thank you sweet friends for everything. For picking me up, holding me up, and for being the best friends and listeners I could ever ask for. I am truly blessed...and trust me it doesn't go unnoticed! I love you!

this picture is obviously from right before I had Wyatt...I think we were both begging him to come out. We were so anxious to meet him!


  1. What a sweet picture of you and Leslie! Isn't it amazing that in that picture Wyatt didn't need wires or surgery or special feedings? You were all he needed! You took such good care of him. I know you are and will be an amazing Mommy! You are still on my heart and mind.

  2. Sis,
    You are too sweet! We all love you so much and want to make each day easier for you in any way that we can. YOU are so special to all of us!!! I love you tons!!

    "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows." 2 Corinthians 1:3-5
