Sometimes it seems like there are way more questions than there are answers. 
 Some days you can feel the dark clouds rolling in and it's hard to find the light.

 I never lose faith, and I know everything will be okay.  I know that God is right there in the middle of everything.  And He's never let me down.   Still, some days are just rough.

 On those days I can always follow my girl's lead.   
She's finding the good. 
And it shows.


 This picture is a little blurry but I had to add it anyway~
check out that smile!

I'm off to pack.  We are  leaving in the morning for Pennsylvania  to attend the commissioning ceremony for  Justin's Masters program.  So proud of him.  He has worked hard, maintaining a good GPA while working full time and finding time to spend with his new bride.  (Speaking of which, I am very, very late on the wedding post!  Sorry, Mags.  It is coming soon.)   

Have a great weekend.  I hope you are able to see the good.   The light through the dark clouds.   Keep looking, it's there.




  1. Oh yeah, it's there, ready to spring out at ya at just the right time. Hang in there and continue to follow your daughter. She sure does find the good and it's because of you, mama.

    The clouds are only momentary. I love you.

  2. This is exactly why I know that God knew EXACTLY what he was doing when he created babies with an extra chromosome. No matter how dark my day, it's pretty tough to stay in a slump when I'm around Elijah. He embodies light and love and so does your Lila. You can see it in her smile and in her eyes. Thanks for sharing your thoughts here- especially when it's not always sunny. ox
