Blog award and a wink!

Thank you Kat for passing along this award!
Here are the rules for sharing this award:
1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award!

So here goes...
1. I am first and foremost a child of the King.
2. I am married to the greatest man on earth.
3. I have four children and am currently pregnant with our fifth.
4. I am the second oldest of four children.
5. I have two best husband and my sister.
6. I love to read.
7. This is my first year homeschooling my children and I love it.

Okay, so I am going to break the rules a little also and not pass this along to fifteen new bloggers. I am going to cheat just a little and leave this open for any blogger who would like to share a little about themselves to grab. There have been so many blogs that have really touched me that I'm afraid I would leave someone out and I just do not want to do that.  Thanks again Kat for passing this along.  If you have not visited Kat's blog you really should go and show her some love.  Her very recent and fresh loss of her baby girl Luisa will really touch you down deep.

I also wanted to share a picture with you that I have shared before but failed to realize something special about.
This is a picture from the October 15th balloon release that we did in Troy.  My oldest son Jay was looking at these pictures a couple of weeks ago and he called me in to the computer and said, "Mama, have you ever noticed the cross in this picture."  Well, I had never noticed it and told him so. If you will look up close to the top almost center you will see a cluster of balloons.  These were a group of balloons that I had done for BLM blog friends that had gotten hopelessly tangled.  When we released them, they made the appearance of a cross.  Maybe this represents how we mothers of babies in Heaven help each other bear our cross daily! I don't know.  I do know that it is a really wonderful "wink" from God that I have needed these last couple of weeks!

Much love,


  1. I never noticed the cross! How fabulous.
    love you so much!

  2. I love the cross cool is that? I also just wanted to let you know that I too chose you for a Stylish Blogger award. I am so thankful to have "met" you because you have helped me through some dark days with your words! Thanks again!

  3. That is beautiful! Thanks for sharing!!!
