that's better

I feel lighter tonight, this whole day. I am not sure if this will make sense, but honestly as I read the outpouring of your comments and emails, I seriously could hear and physically feel the prayers being said for Noah & me.

I had my cry and it felt good. I don't know how to say
thank you enough.

It was the most beautiful day today. Ashlee & I drove up to the city to see Jaymi and her new little Popeye. We were bearing lots of goodies thanks to some wonderful Mamas in our park playgroup like Robin & Jen.






Deep breaths, prayer, sunshine, & friends
will do a weary heart good.










Selah, Xavier, & Gray...






There is just nothing like good friends.

  6. I believe a good cry can heal a lot of things. Personally, when I cry out to God and just allow myself to sob, I can feel him holding me and taking my pain.

    Glad you feel better. Great pictures...looks like lots of fun.

  11. It was a beautiful day. It is great to spend time with friends, especially when you can welcome a new little one! He is so sweet. I really miss having little ones. For me, in some aspects, they are way easier to deal with than tweens!

  15. How neat you all meeting up.

    I have cried a lot lately too. It helps relieve pressure I think and lets me get everything out. Hang in there.. GOD will take care of us all and be right there to guide us and pick us up in times of needed strength.

  23. Stephanie, I am so sorry that Noah needs surgery. I can only imagine the stress and frustration that you feel that he has to endure another health problem.

    You have my prayers for a successful and easy surgery for him. I am glad you are having a better day. Sometimes time and prayer can bring both comfort and perspective. Hang in there, mama.

  27. Looks like you all had so much fun and everyone looks great! Having a baby, stress and being the supporter of these two friends nothing seem to take away from the beauty of you three women. Amazing!!! Glad to see you could all get together.

  32. hi steph!
    boy do i hear 'yah!
    i see your newer post with you spending time with your precious friends! awesome!

    i don't have those kinds of friends but i do have something that is real important to my survival with the high's and low's of life. it's what i call my "prozak, zoloft, atavan & prednizone" all rolled up in one: CBS.

    i don't know what religion you are, but this is a great place to meet with God in a real way without having to hear about other people's problems draggin the "study" away.
