It's been awhile….

I was reading a friend of mine from High school's story about her precious baby girl and I remembered that I too had a blog. Oh yes… my how things have changed for me in life since the last post in 2011!! My journey has taken me to places one would hope never to go, places that are amazing beyond belief and some that require a few growing pains.

We've been married a little longer. Gotten a little older and a lot more gray hair! Our girls are beautiful, amazing, talented, sweet girls that have amazing hearts. (Most of the time.) The type of little ladies that make you want to be a better person. Maddy is now 11, in 6th grade at an amazing charter school: Summit Public Schools Denali. She is tall, has a wild imagination and loves her friends and her family. Since my last post she was diagnosed with a very rare form of Ovarian Cancer called: Juvenile Granulosa Cell Tumor. That pretty much rocked our world to its core. And that is a whole different Blog post ;) She is doing great. She is so brave and yet, such a little girl all at the same time. Reagan is a spunky little first grader learning to speak Spanish and getting ready to take over the world! She loves pink and sparkles and elephants. We did find an amazingly cute little house in the waiting period and have some of our close friends that happen to live across the street.

Perspective is such an interesting thing. I look at my last post about friends going through hard times and yet, not too soon after that we had the rug ripped out from under us and were struggling to make sense of it all. And even now, I have a different perspective than 2 plus years ago. Life is about growing, learning to bend even when we don't think we can bend anymore. Learning that through the pain, we find ourselves and an amazing perspective that we wouldn't have otherwise had.
