Moments like these

When you look at the photo of the trees some of you might be thinking "Wow, those are pretty." Other's might be thinking, "yeah that's a picture of leaves, who cares." The list can go on and on.

That picture means the world to me! It's a picture of home. A picture of the trees in our yard. A picture that I got to take this year.

Around this time last year, I was sitting in a hospital room. Lynlee's central line had already got E-Coli and we knew we would be there another 14 days. We wouldn't be home by Thanksgiving, and I was home sick! I remember the day like it was yesterday. I was sitting in the rocking chair rocking Lynlee when I got a text. It was from my sister Kristie. I was so excited to hear from her, I missed her so much. I opened up the text and it was a picture almost exactly like the above. Our trees were so beautiful, and I wanted to be there! I took one look at the picture and just sat there and sobbed. Ryan ran over to me to see what was wrong. All I can say is I want to go home!

I've been waiting a year to take that picture! It's times and moments like these that really are priceless. This weekend was amazing. We spent a lot of time being outside, being a family, and most importantly we were home!

    There are so many valuable lessons in the hard times. Lynleee has taught you so much. Those trees will forever means something to you and you will always be thankful to be reminded each year.

  2. She is such a lucky little girl to have a mother that looks at things like that.
    In this life we sometimes forget to take time for the little things
    in life. We should all take just a sec to be thankful for what we have. And not complain!!!!
