A picture's worth a thousand words



This picture sums up the WORST the thing that has ever happened to me (losing my most favorite brother and friend) and the absolute BEST. And all in one year's time.

Thank heavens for the plan. I believe now more than ever that the lord has a plan specific to each of us. I can't believe how fast time goes. A year ago today we buried Wayne and I cried myself to sleep every single night until the night I discovered I was pregnant. Which was the Wed. before halloween, so almost a solid 2 months Chaz would lay in bed with me and comfort me as the tears would soak my pillow. But I must say now I cry for joy at how blessed I have been ever since. I believe we must go through those rock bottom times to really recognize the high times in out lives. And I am definately enjoying life at this time. I am so grateful to have such amazing friends who support me when I need them, and always seem to know when that is. My family has become so much closer in the past year and I love that too. Thanks to everyone in my life, you all mean a great deal to me!

Amber I don't even know what to say except that I think you're amazing in so many many ways!You've been through alot in one year's time that's for sure. You're so right about heavenly father's plan. We're so lucky to have it! And we're so lucky to have YOU! We love you and your family so much. Can't wait to see you at Christmas and let the girls be little rolie polies on the floor together :)

This is the most touching picture. It makes me feel like before little Lexus came down here, she was best buds with Wayne.
