I didn't mean to let the past two months pass by without writing. But I did. Between a newborn and a three year old and an incredibly full summer the time to write just didn't happen.
(My last post I wrote...thankfully
My dear friend is doing much better and The Lord is healing)
lyla is sitting up and so strong. she is sleeping through the night. She has had a hard time sleeping and finally our little babe is enjoying some rest at night.
Ava starts pre-school in a few weeks. Ahhhhh
We spent the entire month of July serving at the young life camp: rockbridge. It's where Justin and I met and where my life took a life changing turn. For Jesus and for my husband.
It was an incredible month. Lives changed forever. I am humbled and thankful to have been apart of it.
Ava acts like a teenager most of the time and is way to cool for her momma. But not at night when she needs me to sing two songs and rub her back and talk about our days. She remains to be a strong willed little girl but melts my heart and I am so proud of who she is becoming.
We just returned from our annual beach vacation with Justin's family. It was bittersweet. Ted felt so close and the lack of his physical presence was overwhelming at times. We cried and laughed and celebrated. He would want us to laugh. So we laughed. A lot.
The bond between my girls is more than I imagined and it's only just begin.
A lot of experiences and memories happened this summer and hope to reflect on them as time unfolds.
I am grateful for our life and the relationships we have and how full it makes our hearts and our lives and this one precious life. I have felt very cared for this summer.
