snow, sugar cookies, and snuggles

Snow. I can't tell you how much I needed this today. To watch Austin's face light up was such a blessing. This was his first ever snow encounter and I am so happy he got to experience this. I love Texas and I am so glad we moved back home.

Sugar cookies. All I have to say is, Martha Stewart...Eat your heart out. We didn't have cookie cutters this year so we had to free hand everything lol! Definitely not my best work BUT Austin decorated them all by himself and I think he did an amazing job! He had so much fun, and that is what it is all about!

Snuggles. At the end of the day, nothing, and I mean nothing, is better than some quality snuggle time with a certain little someone. I just love him so much and thank God for him. He is our miracle.

So today was a wonderful wintery day and I loved every minute of it.
One of the hardest things right now is finding the balance between crisis and normalcy. I can't live every minute in fear and anxiety about Easton's health. I have Austin, Adam, and a home I have to tend too as well. So the balance can be difficult and some days I find it hard to find that compromise. Some days I find it hard to emotionally handle everything. But I have to.
So thank you again for all the prayers. You can't imagine how much they help!

Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. From the ends of the earth I call to you,
I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.
I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.
- psalms 61.1-4

so thankful

Today I am thankful for snow, even though it is now melting.
I am thankful for all my friends, blog friends, and family for lifting us up during this time.
I am thankful for the fact that I was able to mix a little formula into Ej's baby food this morning and therefore boosted his caloric intake even if it was "just a little bit".
I am thankful for the generosity, kindness, and prayers that everyone has given. Even people who didn't know me prior to this!

But I am most thankful for a Lord who's strength is perfect when mine fails.
Oh how I am ever grateful. For when we fall, he does indeed pick us up and continue forward. When we can no longer fight, he battles for us. When I am nothing, He is everything. The God of the universe has us tightly in His grip. He will never let go.

So today, I am thankful. So thank you everyone who has lifted us up. Thank you so much. We have felt your prayers and I am so grateful.
