I can hardly believe it's Friday already! This week just mushed itself together. Pretty much how my days have been lately. I am tired. No, that doesn't mean that this insomniac will be able to sleep. Tired & sleeping are 2 different things in my world! ha Maybe I feel tired right now because I was able to relax & let my guard down today & just be myself around my supportive & caring "sistas". I am sure being well-fed & laughing my butt off at (11) sugar-buzzed kids played a part as well!

I guess a few more of Lynette's questions are in order, huh?

If you inherited a million dollars, what is the first thing you would do with your money?
Well I know without a thought, tithing comes first. It's just what we've always done. After that, I am sure investing a bit would come next. From there, I am not sure. We don't have a whole lot longer (in the grand scheme of things) left on our mortgage, so not sure if we'd knock that off or not. Doing vacations as a family is important to us, so maybe we'd take some longer ones. Our kids are big travelers having been to 9 countries in their short lives, so I could see traveling being high on our to do list.

Are you a hopeless romantic?
I AM a romantic (& love those sorts of gestures) but I also realize that movies & books give a false sense of true romance.

What is your greatest accomplishment?
Beyond a shadow of a doubt.......

These 5 amazing children!!! Not to mention the 6th baby we have been blessed with. Those of you who have met our kiddos know truly how amazing they are. ♥ I get the feeling God has something big in store for these kids!

So there ya go. Not a whole lot exciting for my responses today. It's been sort've a rough week for the kids. I don't always share with most people just want we deal with day in & day out, both with the kids & even myself. But there have been many tears shed here again lately due to missing Noah. They still write him lots of letters. Some that they even go to his grave to read to him. =( One of the lines I read recently stated "how much I still hurt from missing you even though others around me can't tell".  Another kiddo was crying because Noah won't be here for his 1st birthday & how bad they want to do something for him.  Just goes to reiterate that you never know what things others around you are going through despite how they may look on the outside.

Just contiue to keep us in prayer please. The kids are excited for this new baby but yet I know this little one will open up a whole new set of things for all of us to process. Not to mention the fact this baby is due the day Noah died, July is going to be a tough month for us in a lot of ways.


  1. Jenn,
    Your children are just beautiful. That picture is absolutely precious.

    I'm so sorry for the baby you've had to surrender to heaven so early... I pray this new baby will bring more healing and comfort for your family.

    I enjoyed reading about you (read your previous posts too.) I hope you're enjoying the blog party and have made some new chums.

    Thanks for linking up!
    Lynnette :)

    PS The word verification was "crying". Isn't that weird?

  2. Hi Jenn, I followed you here from Lynnette's blog. I'll be praying your pregnancy is one of joy and that the Lord gives you and yours His sweet comfort as you mourn the loss of your precious Noah. Blessings...

  3. I def think that children are the biggest blessing and accomplishment ever! And I have added your sweet angel to my angel friends list. ♥


I enjoy hearing from each & every one of you! Thanks for taking the time to comment. :)
