Randy is feeling much better, and I on the other hand am feeling lousy!!! On top of this terrible cold, I fell down our stairway in the middle of the night on Wednesday and I feel like my body has been in a car accident. Boy oh boy, when it rains it pours. We must remember that this too shall pass and we will all be on the road to better health soon.
Yesterday before taking Connor to the ER I was able to attend the funeral services for baby Jonah. It was a beautiful rememberance of him and an incredible testimony of his family's faith in God. May we all become better people and may we have deeper relationships with the Lord because of what we walk through here on earth.
All our Lovebug Hugs,

I will attend his service tomorrow. Oh how difficult it is to say goodbye to precious souls. Randy & I had the wonderful opportunity to see him on Saturday when we went visiting all of our hospital buddies to say goodbye and pray with everyone. Let me tell you, Jonah was a delight to lay my hands on and whisper prayers to the Lord for. He looked up at me with his little eyes and I just about melted. I will hold that precious picture in my heart forever. Be healed now baby Jonah and know that you have touched the world with love from above. May you play with our precious baby Michael and baby Stone and may you all know what it is like to giggle and experience God's love first hand.
Once again, there will be much more to come. We're still settling into life back here at home. It's the first day of summer and I couldn't be happier to pack Little Bug into the stroller and go for a walk. We plan on taking a family walk right after dinner.
I'll write more soon.

More to come,

So as the story unfolded my eyes were filled with tears...not of sadness but of joy!!! Connor is my son and I love him so much....I've always prayed that God would allow me to take all Connor's pain and sickness on myself and to give him a life free of hurts but.....that's not God's plan right now....maybe just maybe God's plan is to work on Daddy's heart to show him how much love counts and sometime costs...but in the end is worth so much! Connor thanks so much for being my son...in whom I am well pleased! And Lori....my sweetheart....all the love on this earth could not compare to the love I have for you....you make my heart soar!!!!! This gift I will treasure the rest of my life.......the greatest gift of all.....
my beautiful family.....this is what life is all about...my love to you Lori and Connor!
Son...Daddy will teach you all about how God loves you...and that's a promise!
....Oh and yes I'll have to teach you about airplanes too...OK :-)
ps....Honey this truely is the greatest gift of all.... "Thank You"...for making my 1st Fathers Day so life changing...my heart will never be the same!
ps#2....and for all those wondering how I took this trip back in time....well.... Lori had been working very hard during all the moments she possibly could muster up in the last couple of weeks to develop a music video/CD of "Our Family" life...thanks Honey for the hours and hours of work you did to make this so special!!!!!! It is our treasure.....and its in my heart!
I love you Sweetheart....your husband.....
It's me, Little Bug!!! I couldn't wait to wake up first thing this morning to wish you a Happy 1st Father's Day. Did you know that I think you are the best daddy in the whole wide universe? I keep thanking Jesus every day that He placed me into your arms and asked you to be my daddy. Well, actually, I asked Herman, my personal guardian angel to tell Him. I just love our time together. You make me laugh and I like that. Mama can't even get me to gleam in my eyes the way you do. Don't tell her that though because I think she thinks she can!! Hee Hee, it will be our secret!!!! It's a lot of fun to have you as my daddy because you treat me like I'm really something special. When you talk to me and kiss all over me I know it comes from the bottom of your heart and when it spills all over me I get the giggles inside. Sorry I don't show the giggles on the outside yet, but I'm getting close!!
Well Dad, I know you have been praying for me a lot and I really think that God is answering your prayers because I think I'm getting better. Hey, they wouldn't let me go home tomorrow if I wasn't getting better, right? Thanks for asking Jesus to heal me. I know that He love me too, just like you!!
I'm glad you liked your Father's Day gift that me and mama worked on for you. Maybe if mama can figure out how to post videos she can put it up here on my blog so all of our friends can see it. She worked so hard to make it a special gift. She worked on the project with our 2nd cousin Tony and they made a video of me. Wow, it turned out so cool and I thought it was so sweet that you cried when we showed it to you. You have such a tender heart, Dad. I want to be just like you when I grow up....tender on the inside and strong on the outside. Mama says that's what a true man of God is like, so I want to be just like you.
I hope you have a great Father's Day, Dad. I just want you to remember that you are never alone. I am always with you...tucked inside the secret part of your heart that was built especially for me. I love you daddy with all my heart.
Little Bug, Connor
