A Gift of Fresh Air

Umm...I know this will be painful for my east coast friends to hear, but it is 59 degrees outside and we are going to have a high of 65 today.  I think I like January in Denver....

Sophie spent the morning riding her bike and drawing with chalk on the sidewalk.

I am mindful today once again of the gift that each day is.  My darling sister Eliza experienced a tragic miscarriage the other day.  She was nearly 16 weeks.

Today, my sister-in-law Elisabeth, who has experienced several heartbreaking miscarriages is in labor right now at the hospital with a full-term healthy baby boy.  This will be her 3rd child. 

I guess we never know what each day will bring us.  I can't help but ask myself, "Am I doing enough to enjoy my gift today?"

  1. I love catching up on your blog. You're such a great writer and it makes me miss you and your fam! It's even more sad for me that you guys don't live in UT anymore so it leaves me wondering when we'll ever see you again. Sounds like you're thriving though. Excited to hear about Lauren's big debut!
