Honored

A few months ago Paige shared with the girls the pain that her family was dealing with as her cousin and his wife prepared to deliver a son that they knew would not have much time with his earthly family. It is a pain that is beyond comprehension. The grief of it all has brought me to tears more times than I can count. It wasn't long after learning about Paige's cousin that I began reading about Audrey Caroline on her mom's blog. Hero Husband doesn't even ask why I am crying when he sees me reading Angie's updates and I think he even reads them on his own sometimes. These two amazing families lost their children within a day of each other and it brought me to my knees. I decided that I wanted to do something.

I wrote to the Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation and volunteered to photograph the families who suffer this unimaginable tragedy.

I heard from them today that I have been accepted.

Deep Breath

I am honored.

Please pray for me as I walk down this path, but mostly pray for those who will be calling on me.

His will, His words, not me... just Him at every step

  1. What a beautiful thing to do. I don't know if I could be graceful in the presence of that deep grief. I know the families will treasure the memories you give them.
