Prayers for the Porche Family

Hey, it's me again.  I just wanted to post asking everyone to pray for the Porche family - I found out this morning that they lost their little 6 week old son Owen (JEB).  Owen is the baby Courtney talked about in this post here.  Sweet little Owen developed a blood infection in very early April and this past Monday heavens angels came down to relieve him of his pain and give him his wings. 

Thinking of this, and remembering this past Monday makes sense to me now.  Monday was a bad day for me - missing Leah wise.  Now; the 'usual' for me is that I'll think about her, or talk about her and get sad but I can 'snap out of it' and move forward with the rest of the day.  But on Monday, I responded to an email Patrice had sent out about G-tube surgeries and EB and from then on that day I was a mess.  Not openly sobbing at my desk or anything ...... but I just couldn't snap out of it like I usually do.  It seemed like every woman I saw was pregnant, and looking at the pictures of Leah I have on my desk here weren't making me smile like they usually do.  Looking at them just made me miss her; more than I have in many many weeks. 
But now I know my lonely feeling on Monday was because she wasn't hanging around me like she normally does, making me feel better; Leah was busy that day flying down to Louisiana to take Owen back to heaven with her, and bring some comfort to his Mommy and Daddy.

I know Leah and Owen will be very good friends in heaven's playground - and I hope she can show him how easy it is to run and jump without blisters or pain - and how much fun it is to strap on your travelling wings and visit your Mommy and Daddy.

So please join me in praying for the Porche family - we know all too well the pain that comes with losing your child to a disease that makes no sense.  But with family, friends and faith we can get through it - in time.

He heals the broken heartened and binds up their wounds.
Psalms 147:3

Fundraising for Tripps Birthday!

Hey gang!

I'm doing another online event to help raise funds to donate to dEBra.  I now donate all of my earnings as an Avon rep to dEBra - but since I started doing that with an event to celebrate Jonah's birthday, I wanted to do another one for Tripps birthday.  So from today until the end of May, I will donate all of my earnings to dEBra, but in honor of Tripps big day!

So .......... here's the link:

Please feel free to tell all your friends about it - we raised about $200 for Jonah's b-day, lets see if we can beat that for Tripp!

P.S. There will be no 'promo code' to participate like there was with Jonah's .... in the end it only caused confusion; and you can only put in 1 promo code per order so putting in one for the event doesn't allow you to use the 'FS30REP' one for free shipping on any order over $30.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter Everyone!!

So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. 1 Corinthians 15:42-44

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace.
Ephesians 1:7

Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?" "Yes, Lord," she told him, "I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who was to come into the world."
John 11:25-27

Wishing a very Happy Easter to my sweet Leah!
Love, Mommy
