in my prayers

gratitude that my niece talley is finally home from haiti after waiting over two years to meet her. she was worth the wait. still praying for her sister to come home too. her pictures make me smile, so i can't wait to smile at her in real time.


also praying for the nielson family. my sister's brother- and sister-in-law were in an airplane crash. stephanie and christian are in critical condition but showing some improvement. stephanie's blog was one of the first i ever read and always a highlight of my day. she perfectly projects what a lovely thing motherhood is and can be, and i am always thinking how i wish i was more like her. go here for more info and to help.

Talley is darling! I'm so glad they made it back safely in spite of the storm. AG

I'm so glad for Talley, too. She is so blessed to have a loving new family.

And I think you are perfect just as you are.

So glad Talley is home safe and sound! What a precious sweetie she is! I hope her sister is home soon!

I'll pray for Stephanie and Christian. Hope they make a full recovery.

BTW I tagged you for a meme!

I don't know Stephanie and Christian, but I peeked at Stephanie's blog, and she seems to be an amazing wife and mother, with a really full life. I'll pray that they pull through.

Beautiful little girl - congrats to your family! And I will say a prayer for your your sister's relatives who were in the crash. Life is so very precious.

what a small world. a friend of mine is our ward knows them and posted about the plane crash on her blog. they seem like such great people. i do hope they both can make a full recovery soon and be back home with their kids.

Tally is darling! How is she doing with her new siblings?

I agree with Emily. You are wonderful as you are. Don't ever change.
