when it snows a blizzard!

I am still alive and kicking. Scott is still the rock I lean on, everyday I realize how God sent him to me - no doubt. I couldn't imagine loving anyone else more than I love Scott. And he tolerates me so well :)

As Christmas gets closer, my heart and mind drifts to the shoulda's. He is almost 3 months now. I remember Lyric at 3 months. *I thought I could type this out fully, but I can't. This shouldn't be so raw still, makes me angry at me for still feeling so much about it all. This really sucks!

Last friday night, Scott and I took mom and Sara out for dinner. As we were leaving mom tripped over some cement and fell and broker her shoulder. Fortunate it was a clean break so no surgery. Bad part is it will take 4-6 months to heal.

I brought her and dad to our house so she doesn't have to do much. She can't if she wanted to. She is in so much pain, but puts on a brave face for most everyone.

We no soon as got her settled that a blizzard hit NC. C R A Z Y! Snowed all day. 10ish inches. It is so beautiful. We rarely see this much in a year much less one day.

I will post some pictures when I am home on my computer. We are having Christmas dinner at our house since mom is down. I really am excited.

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas. Praying that everyone remembers our Savior is the reason for this season. Praying for all who have felt the sting of the economy, the sadness of loss or who's health is failing. Praying for those who have reach out to those who don't.

Merry Christmas from Scott and I!


  1. My M-I-L was just asking me about you and how you're doing. We've been thinking about you guys and you are always in our prayers. I hope your Momma feels better soon.

    Merry Christmas, girl!


  2. Praying you are blessed with a lovely Christmas and hoping your mom feels better soon. Ouch!

  3. Merry Christmas to you, Hope! Sure hope your mom has a speedy recovery.

    Hey Hope! I hope your Mom feels better soon. Give her some great pampering while she rests (but remind her that it won't last forever!).

    Know that I still think of you often and pray for you and Scott's healing. We may not know each other personally, but God knows you well through my prayers!

    Have a wonderful holiday full of love and joy. Love, Francie
