Little Brother's Big Day

My little brother got married! We are heart broken that we missed the actual ceremony because of our little medical mishap, but we feel so greatful that we got to celebrate with him on his special day.

Sean was so sad that we missed the I do's. I was just happy to FINALLY be there. :)

I have been changed. My life has forever changed. My love has been altered.

I have looked at the lifeless face of the man that I love and fought for him to return to me. Life seems to have slowed... I now appreciate every kiss, savour every word, bathe in every touch.

I really feel too overwhelmed to rehash all of the terrifying details of our weekend getaway, but in a few simple words, Sean's blood pressure bottomed out and he lost consciousness on an airplane. We had to turn the plane around and found ourselves stranded in a strange city and an unknown hospital praying for help and solace.

The single gift that I can take away from this trauma is a new appreciation for the power of prayer. I know I worship a God that loves me and knows me intimately enough to answer a prayer too terrifying for my mouth to utter, too overwhelming for my mind to think. My heart cried out and He answered me.

My life has changed. My appreciation has deepened. I am forever changed.

I have been asked to help with the nursery at church. I am SO EXCITED! I love every single one of those little kiddos and I really enjoy crafting, singing, dancing, and learning with them. Oh, and Maddi is super excited to have me in there :)

This Sunday we did the Easter lesson (kids this age learn in repetition, so we're doing the beautiful Easter lesson twice). We decorated Easter eggs with stickers, danced under a rainbow of fabrics, and shook our jingle bunnies during music time.

Drew has been busy too. Look at this super cool model car he put together!! Isn't it gorgeous??
