"Don’t be afraid. Only believe, and she will be healed."
Luke 8:50

Isabelle and Brooklyn

These precious little girls have both been diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis and my goal is to have everyone keep them in their prayers DAILY! The power of prayer is truly amazing and does work! Please pray for sweet baby Brooklyn, her sister Isabelle, and the entire Medina family. Whether you are close with them or just hear of what wonderful people they are through mutual friends...PRAY. When you're in the car driving or just in bed at night before you go to sleep...PRAY. A simple prayer to the good Lord above for these little girls who are fighting with all their tiny might to beat this! *ALL DONATIONS GO TO THE MEDINA FAMILY*

Why God!?
Why did you pick me for this?
Why does this happen?
Why this sentence for my children?
They didn’t do anything!
Why God??

God replied, “I picked you because you were the perfect parent for these children. This is a sinful world and sometimes things go wrong. I also wanted you to see the blessings in having special children had. Yes, the sorrows will happen. Those are the times that you come to me for comfort and strength. Your children didn’t have a “sentence” they have a limited time on Earth just like everyone else. Your children are suffering yes, but so did mine. I sent mine to Earth for 33 years and watched mine die a terrible death. He did that to save everyone else. If my Son did that for humanity, just think of what your children could do. Be patient and watch. You will see what I do with your children and the legacy that your children are creating

Cystas!! That's the female term for girls with CF...I think it's so cute that they are sisters but also cystas!! Love it!

Going back to work.....

Well, the countdown has officially begun. :( I am returning to work on Monday. For obvious reasons, we need the second income to cover the girls. I never in my life thought I would enjoy being a stay at home mommy so much! The last four months have been full of ups and downs and everything in between. But, through it all, we are so much stronger of a family unit. We can now get through anything!!! I sure am gonna miss waking up every morning to those precious baby smiles from Brooklyn, shortly following, Aiden joining us to just make our day interesting! Izzy likes to sleep anywhere from noon to whenever I wake her up every day, but she sure lights me up as soon as I see her. Her smile is infectious. With Aiden and Izzy, I returned to work when they were 8 weeks old. I don't think I ever got to fully enjoy seeing every moment like I have these past months. I have always enjoyed over working myself, usually with more than one job. But, after these months at home, the diagnoses of the girls, and really getting to know my children on a deeper level, I now know my true calling in life is to be a MOMMY!! These last few days at home, I will treasure so much. I will eventually return to this "stay at home mommy" career, not soon enough. But, for now, I return to my other career with a greater understanding of what my own mommy did for me all those years.........
