Life's moving forward...

I log in from time to time to read every ones blogs--then I go to write one and don't even know where to begin...nothing interesting has happened in my life lately--at least nothing I would think people would like to read...

We did recently get back from vacation. We went to PA to visit Zach's family,  and went to a family reunion as well. It was a blast seeing everyone and catching up. We haven't seen Zach's family since last October when we went to Branson. So this trip was much needed! We went horseback riding, canoeing (Which by the way-I'm NO good at...how hard can it be to steer a boat?) We rode bumper boats with our nieces and nephew, and did alot of fun activities with them as well (let me just tell you they made me realize fast that I'm far from in shape)...and if being out of shape wasn't bad enough I have to be honest, all I did on vacation was EAT! I blame it on all of the good home cooked Italian food they made...if I lived up north near them to eat there cooking all the time I would easily weigh 20+ pounds heavier if not more! All in all vacation was amazing, a much needed get away!

On the down side my mom recently had surgery and so did my grandfather. Both are recovery fine, but prayers are always appreciated.

I do have to brag on my husband a little. Every year the company he works for picks a couple people throughout the nation wide company who is considered the safest driver, and although he has been promoted and is no longer a driver he was picked while he was one-so he still qualifies. Well they fly them to IL for a few days to compete at the NASCAR track. He will drive through obstacles, take test and a couple other things...if he wins out of this group I believe he will be going to Florida in November...he has no idea what he wins, but just the pride in knowing he was picked out of millions is winning enough. I am very proud of him. He works very hard for us to have the things we do and for us to be able to do the things we do. Love him very much!

On the last note, the one question I've received more than anything...'Whats next'....I hate to say it, but we still aren't sure. Obviously we have 3 frozen babies; it's just the timing...when will we be ready? When will we move forward? I am not sure. Time continues to heal our hearts, I was actually able to go through all our pictures from the short time I was pregnant the other day and didn't feel hurt. WE ARE OK-Zach is my biggest support system--he keeps me where I am so busy I don't think much-he keeps me laughing. Together we are getting through this. I'm always amazed at the love and support from everyone on here, but when you continue to get cards from people you've never met and you haven't blogged in over a month--that's special, that means more than I could explain. Thank you all for being patient with my lack of blogging. Thank y'all for continuing to check on me and for the continued prayers.

Life's moving along...nothing interesting...but were finally moving forward.  :)

Way to go to your hubsters!!!

I pray for you and think of you often (is that weird?! I promise I'm not a stalker or crazy!!!). I hope you update more often!

My heart is hurting for you.

But, it seems that you are getting to the place where you can see the beauty of your pregnancy...even though it did not end well. I feel that was all the time about Eleanna.

BTW have you thought about naming your baby? I know some other mother's in the healing hearts group did and it was a great comfort to be able to speak to them in prayers by name. I know that I talk to Eleanna all the time and feel close to her each time I speak or hear her name.

So glad to hear from you. I follow you on instagram so knew you were enjoying your vacation. I check in on your blog to see if there are updates. I remember how I felt after my first pregnancy ended in miscarriage. It takes a bit of time to really be ready to open yourself up again and move forward. Go when you are ready and continue enjoying your summer and your time with Zack. And congrats to him for his accomplishment and the fun he will have on the driving course.

I have no clue how I missed that you and Zach did become pregnant. I thought I was reading our blog with every post.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I am glad that time is healing both your broken hearts.

I wish you both the best in deciding when that time will be right for another try.

I love my boys! said...
