Josiah and Virginia

I feel bad that I haven't updated this blog in a while. We have been so busy as we have been adjusting to Tim working again after 4 months of being out of work. We have been so blessed during those 4 months--we never thought we would make it through but God has been so merciful to us and has blessed us with wonderful family, friends and church families as well. Our work schedules are so messed up but we are trying to spend as much time together as a family when we can and hope that some day it will return to a little bit more normal.

This month has been a difficult month with Virgina's 1st birthday starting off the month. I was dreading her birthday but that actually was the best day out of the whole experience because we had an AMAZING doctor and the delivery was the best gift that she could give me.

A couple of days later we had a scare with my dad being diagnosed with diabetes. It was actually a year to the date that Virginia was buried--and he went in for a physical and his blood sugar was HIGH and he had to go the ER. We are so thankful for the miracle that he had the physical and did not suffer any adverse side effects from the high blood sugar. Now he is doing super well with it and we are so thankful. We love him soo much and are so thankful for him!

A week after Virginia's birthday we received horrible news about a young girl from our church being killed in a car accident. Words cannot express the sadness that we have felt for this family. Our lives have been forever touched by the loss of this little girl and we will continue to celebrate each day with the ones that we have around us and realize that we can't take anything for granted.

This month we also celebrated Gloriana and Belladia's 1st birthdays. This was a little hard for us as we knew that Virginia should be here at the same age as them, but we are so thankful that they are here and that they are doing ok. We would appreciate your prayers for them as they have a couple of hurdles to overcome.

We were also able to celebrate this month the legacy that both of our parents have had as they both celebrated their 40th wedding anniversaries. We are so thankful for all of them and we seek to love each other for the rest of our lives.

I wanted to end this post with one of the sweetest things that Josiah has done this month. I was talking on the phone with my sister and Josiah made this cake out of paper plates and a can of soup and started singing Happy Birthday Geenya. It left me speechless and means so much to me that he loves his sister soo much!

  1. sorry for the difficulties of this past month :(. it must have been hard to worries about your dad, the sadness from the girl from church, and Virginia's birthday all piling up. i'm glad that you also had beautiful things, like your parents' anniversaries and that precious Happy Birthday Geenya cake form Josiah. i know you wish it were different (i do, too, for you), but i love that her brother loves and remembers her.
