One Day At A Time

I just wanted to say a quick "Thank You!" to everyone for all of the prayers and kind words. It is such a blessing for us to have so many family and friends who care as much as all of you. It has been a very tough week, but each day gets a little bit easier. The nights are the worst, when all the distractions have quieted down, but even those are getting easier to get through. God is keeping us strong and we are trusting Him for the plan He has for us. It still hurts to know that we won't be able to hold our sweet baby in our arms in May, but we are rejoicing that we will have a baby to hold in Heaven.

In unrelated news, we had our house painted earlier this week. Jared's brother, Dusty, runs a painting business so when his guys had a break between their regular commercial jobs he sent them down our way. As you can see from the picture below, our house was in desperate need of a little face lift and it looks soo much better now! We're notoriously bad at picking out paint colors, and the trim isn't quite the right shade of red we were hoping for. So now we're thinking we'll just paint all the trim black and then paint the door red or maybe green. We're still not sure. :) But even like it is, it's much better than it was!

Your house looks great. It was nice seeing you tonight. I know it has been a hard week and I am praying for you and Jared.

You look fabulous!
