On September 15th my baby turned 4. I don't suppose that she is still considered a baby by most, but she will always be my baby. We had to celebrate the joyous occasion with what else? A birthday party! In Ratatouille style. Hanna loves to cook, so Ratatouille was only appropriate. All of the children had a great time and it was such a blessing to see them all together to celebrate the birth of Hanna. Happy birthday Hanna, momma loves you!

I am so full of sadness right now, but also rejoicing. I am not sure how many of you may have been following the link from my blog site titled, Living With Leukemia. Amy Wilhoite has been fighting for her life since she was diagnosed with cancer in July 2006. She is only 26 years old. I have been following her blog and praying on a continuous basis for healing of Amy. Amy has a beautiful boy named Gary who is 1 1/2 years old. I cannot fathom the pain that this family has had to deal with seeing such a young woman, mother, daughter, wife, friend deal with the pain and suffering of cancer. I always drew wisdom from Amy's post. She seemed so strong and praised God during her storm. I prayed each time I would click on her website that there would not be a post about Amy's death. I prayed that she would be healed. Just a moment ago I clicked on her blog and my heart broke. Amy went on to be with the Lord yesterday. Leaving behind a husband, son, and a family that made it so apparent how much they love her. I am rejoiceful for Amy in that her suffering is no more, but saddened by all those left behind whose life she has touched. I would like to please ask that each of you pray for Amy's family. For strength, healing, and that they may find comfort in knowing that Amy has truly experienced ultimate healing. Wilhoite family, you will continue to be in my prayers.

Wow. Six years ago today our world changed. I was 5 months pregnant with my first daughter and wondered, "How God can I bring a child into this crazy world?" I felt so guilty. But then I had to remember, God is the one who gave me that precious life I was carrying. I had to go on. The feelings we all felt that day are feelings that will never ago away: shock, disbelief, horror, shame, sadness, etc.... May we never forget Sept. 11th and all the days after. God has helped us to rise up out of the ashes. Thank you to all the troops that serve our country and for your dedication. We love you America! May we find a way to continue to praise God during the storms of this life.
