27 Weeks

27 Weeks
So I'm really bad at posting my weekly picture on the actual day that I turn the next week but at least it's still in the same week! That has to count for something, right? In my own defense this has been a pretty busy weekend....yes my time can actually get filled up even being stuck in the hospital! Hope's 21st birthday was Friday and so we all celebrated with her (as much as is possible in a little hospital bedroom!)
And then on Saturday until today my friends Shannon and Kelly drove down from Nebraska to spend some time with me. It was great to have people around all weekend and catch up with those girls! It really blesses me when I know people are giving up time that they could be doing something else and come visit me. It's been so humbling to see all the outpouring of love and encouragement from all our family and friends during this time. This is going to be such a long road and honestly I figured by this point most people would have "forgotten" about us and gone on with their lives but I have still had an average of at least 2-3 visitors (outside of Tyler and Hope) every single day! It really makes me so thankful for our amazing community and friends we have here. I know my mom has said that it blesses her to see that since she wishes she could just pop in every day and see how I'm doing but obviously can't because she's so far away. I'm really so thankful for each person that has come to see me, you have no idea how much impact on my day, even a quick visit or phone call makes to me. All of you are what helps me keep my positive attitude and not to focus on the "what ifs." I just want you all to know how thankful I am for each of you and everything you've done for me!


  1. i see you're cheating and getting up for pics! :) yay for your new room! it has good karma (whatever that means). . . the most beautiful girl in the world was there 34 months ago!

    fallyn kept saying "bye-bope!" over and over when we left :)

  2. Question. What is written behind your pic?

  3. The Lord measures our strength and then puts us where we'll need just a little more...a place that may be hard for us at times - but not hard for Him.
