Our Sweet Emma Grace is Four!

Four years ago today, our sweet Emma Grace came into our lives. She answered our prayers and is the light of our lives. She’s our one and only. Happy Birthday precious girl! Thank you for your smile, laugh, wit, and spunk!

Someone in my life

Someone in my life has weighed heavily on my mind the last two days. This person continues to struggle and there is very little I can do but pray and send love and light. I am actually not supposed to know that this person is struggling again, hence the anonymity. The power of prayer is obvious to me, so I knew it would help to ask for prayers from around the world. After all, I have readers in Canada, Europe, Russia, and Australia. The power reaches far and wide!

This person needs strength, comfort, compassion, and joy.

Thank you in advance for your thoughts.

This morning, my three year old daughter said, “We are a community and we communicate.” After being blown away by her intelligence and introspection, I realized how right she was.

We are a community of moms, dads, kids, grandparents, friends, co-workers, supporters, leaders, professionals, drinking buddies, and party throwers!

We most certainly communicate quite a lot about everything from toddler tantrums to school supplies to the best place to get sushi. And more than anything, we’ve got each others’ backs.

That was very clear yesterday when I asked for prayers on our community Facebook page and received close to 50 responses right away. Some were from people I don’t even know. And many asked me how I was doing today. The prayers worked.

There’s nothing like having a large group of people in your corner. You may not know all of them well, but if you need them, there is no question. The circle will close around you.

When the circles closes around me, I know I am home.
