I hear my children waking up from their long naps, (thank you children). Anyway, I wanted you to meet her too. She is a young mother to four lovely children....she and her husband were in a horrible plane crash last August in which much of their bodies were burned. They lived and they tell the story of their beautiful lives here. And Von, did you know she had her babies at home?? I like her even more now! My friends, you will like her too:
this post will be a good place to start, she is full of courage.
Here is a quote I came across while reading her blog:Author Anna Quindlen reminds us not to rush past the fleeting moments. She said: “The biggest mistake I made [as a parent] is the one that most of us make. . . . I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of [my three children] sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages six, four, and one. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in such a hurry to get on to the next thing: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less”(from the book "Loud and Clear").
