Six years ago today, our sweet girl was diagnosed with cancer. Her subtype of leukemia was very aggressive and she received a bone marrow transplant with anonymously donated stem cells, just a few days after her second birthday. It was a living nightmare but, she is still here with us today and has been in remission for 5.5 years. Grateful isn't a big enough word for that. We were able to meet her donor a few years ago and thank him in person (how could 'thank you' ever be enough?!) and she will even get to be a flower girl in his wedding this Fall. We have been fortunate to be shown so much kindness from friends, family, and strangers alike - every single step of the way. Today, we will do something extra fun to celebrate her life and survivorship. Thankful beyond measure. 💗If you haven't already, please consider registering as a bone marrow donor. The process is quick and painless and could be life saving for someone just like Olivia #deletebloodcancer#bethematch#conquerkidscancer .
"A star falls from the sky and into your hands. Then it seeps through your veins and swims inside your blood and becomes every part of you. And then you have to put it back into the sky. And it's the most painful thing you'll ever have to do and that you've ever done. But what's yours is yours. Whether it’s up in the sky or here in your hands."

Wir genießen gerade aktiv unser Wochenende...Peter sitzt immer noch im Schlafanzug in seinem Kinderzimmer und spielt. Ich backe ein bisschen und werde das dreckige Geschirr gleich einfach in der Spüle stehen lassen.😅Mein Mann hat es sich auf dem Sofa gemütlich gemacht und liest. Nur Wendy wehrt sich noch gegen ihr Mittagsschläfchen. Vielleicht gehen wir gleich noch raus und üben ein bisschen Rollschuhlaufen. Nur damit man nicht das Gefühl hat bei so schönem Wetter die ganze Zeit in der Bude gesessen zu haben...Und Ihr so? Habt ein wunderschönes Wochenende!😘☀️🌸 #relax#itssaturday#summertime#mood
I was saying to my husband yesterday that this past week felt so incredibly busy even though it wasn't so much. My kiddos were in VBS this week so I had 5 mornings to get stuff done. Yet the thought of upcoming vacation and everything that had to be done left me completely overwhelmed!! Combined with some other personal issues, by Wednesday I was having panic attacks. It's like all little issues we're becoming huge issues and they really didn't need to be. Thankfully my hubby usually listens when I'm in these modes and helped me get through them. And while I'd really like to jump over these things, I really think we were made for mess. There is always a way in the wilderness and it's through the crazy, unscripted moments that beauty can come! A problem that I made huge in my mind became clear in my sleep that very night! The next day it was done in two minutes not the hours it would have taken me the day before. It's amazing what perspective and the Holy Spirit can do. I'm learning to get better at letting go and stepping away- but it's so hard! Thank you for reading if you made it this far ❤️❤️❤️ if you have a moment today take time to take a few breaths and get a fresh perspective, it really does wonders!
I am so grateful for this man in my life and the way he loves us, provides for us and cares for us. He is the sounding board for my business. He cheers me on, encourages me in my trenches and gives sound advice when I need clarity. He is not perfect, but he is an amazing space for me to lean into and trust within my business. He is good and he is my person and for that I am so grateful. We all need relationships to help us grow, and mourn and encourage and vent and process and ultimately build up and be built up. Who is your person? #GratefulHeartInBus
It's 8am and we have eaten breakfast; delivered a smoothie, coffee, and egg salad sandwich to Papa who is working on the house this morning; and now backyard skinny dipping. 🍑🌿🌞How is your morning coming along? Im always blown away by how much us mamas do and can get done in one short day(or morning). ❤#babywinsletlove#summer#babypool#morningsun#themodernnaturehome
