I’m not quite sure where time has gone… It’s been five crazy busy years since the last update with much to celebrate…coupled with a bit of sorrow.
Benjamin graduated in May 2014 from Stevenson University with his bachelors in Computer Information Systems. We are so proud of him!
He proposed to a lovely girl whom I am honored to have as another daughter. Erin has already won the title “favorite daughter-in-law”! They married in August of 2014 and what a beautiful couple they are!
They just celebrated their 3rd wedding anniversary!
Morgan graduated from high school June ’13 and it was indeed a day to celebrate!
She married in September ’13. Wayne is kind, gentle and possesses a desire to do what’s right. They just celebrated their 4th wedding anniversary.
Hannah graduated from high school in 2013 and we captured the celebration perfectly! LOL
She attended Johnson & Wales University in Charlotte, NC for two years graduating with her Associates in Applied Science Baking & Pastry. She returned to Johnson & Wales Colorado campus this fall to further her education. Miss her beyond words!
Audrey turned 8, then 9…10…11…and is now 12!
She was homeschooled up until 6th grade and is now attending a classical school and is doing quite well! So very proud of her~she works diligently at getting her studies done.
Audrey is such a blessing to our family and Gabriella couldn’t asked for a better big sister. She helps keep “watch” over Gabriella often if but only for a few minutes.
Gabriella experienced her record of 8 months with no seizures and it was glorious! I am so thankful for that time and yet it seems so long ago… Then the day after the Ravens won the Super Bowl ’13 she had a breakthrough seizure that would be the start of continued seizures till this day… We were averaging about 1 a month, then 1 every two weeks, 1 every week and at most 12 grand mals in a night. Recouping from those nights takes a couple days as we remain in HIS grip… She’s grown quite a bit in the last 6 months and is about half my body weight. I’m working on getting stronger…We have been on one seizure med with just starting another along with Chrlotte’s Web – ROC. Seizures are shorter than they have ever been with a quick recovery~for that I am so grateful! God has indeed been a constant help in time of need… She was recently diagnosed with severe osteoporosis-her bone density test was a negative 6…(should be zero). We are trying to be even more careful as we tip toe through this thing called life…resting again in HIS grip. Gabriella loves the simple things ~ shopping at Target:-) going to the park:-) reading the same books we’ve read for the last 5 years, lol 🙂 “friends” which includes anyone around her size even if you’re a stranger:-), and eating at Chik-fil-A:-) She reminds me everyday what a precious gift life is and I’m so thankful for that gift!
The biggest news to date is I am a granny to not one, but three beautiful grand-littles! They call me MiMi and it just melts my heart!
As I update this blog, the awareness of just how life is but a vapor is a reality… Oh how quickly time has passed! What was once one home is now four… We’ve had unions and separations and God has been there through it all…
He never blinked concerning us… Nothing caught Him off-guard…
Thankful to remain IN HIS GRIP!
Blessings to you!
