At this time last year, I had no expectations that our lives were going to change so dramatically in such a short time. I prayed daily, hourly, that we would be blessed to welcome a child to our home. I had hope, and I had faith in the Lord's timing, but I tried not to expect.
What a difference a year makes! Our lives this year have been full of evidence of the Lord's tender mercies to us. The biggest and most obvious tender mercy in our lives is meeting Tayler, and being entrusted to raise Ellie. I have also recognized the support of family and friends this year, and have opened myself up to feeling the love that surrounds me. Greg's business continues to provide for our family, and he has a hobby that he loves to do and is successful at (although why anyone would want to be yelled at by basketball fans is beyond me).
We are truly blessed!
