How does one begin to put my gratitude into words…. There are times when it is difficult to find the words to share my appreciation and this week has been no exception.  The support,  encouragement, prayers, gestures, has my heart overflowing. Friends and strangers far and near have sent us notes and prayed, how does one say thank you. We have had meals, goodies and groceries dropped off. The boys taken care of, our laundry done (yes even the bottom of the barrel that I wouldn’t touch) the house cleaned and our home cleansed by a my girlfriend who studies Fung Shei, we are blessed!

The day we came home from the hospital this gorgeous sign was sitting in the hallway!  Coincidence? NO….Gods hand’s….YES

Tiffini is the talent behind this sign and blogger over at  House of Belonging.  She had wanted to make a sign for me long ago, I thought a lot about what I wanted the words to say and this is what I came up with.  Words we try to live by as a family, the sign would serve as a reminder to us on a daily basis.  Tiffini became ill over the holidays and things became hectic.  When she had time to make the sign neither one of us had no idea our lives would be turned upside down.  Yes, I would say God had a HUGE part of this, the sign couldn’t have come at a better time.

From the bottom of my heart Tiffini, thank you!  Our friends, our family, my blogging friends have been nothing short of a miracle, thank you!  Please stop by her Etsy Shop and take a look around she loves to create custom orders!
