Something is Missing...




Ever feel like something is missing... 
something's not quite right? 




You wake up in the morning with a general feeling that something is off... 
then it hits you again...
whatever the problem is.
Could be a wayward child...
unpaid bills...
a loss of some kind...
or a loved one in pain...
could even be you are the one in pain.

I wake up like this sometimes, well, most times lately.
I simply get up, shake it off, and go on about my day.
Everyone seems to think I'm holding all my feelings inside.
A friend even told me I was being mysterious...
obviously she doesn't read my blog...
out there for the world...
or at least for the ones that read regularly.

What do people want me to do?
Talk about cancer 24/7?
Tell them I'm afraid?
Tell them I cry myself to sleep every night?
Even if these things were true...
why in a million years would I burden them with it?
Doesn't seem right, or productive.

We've been going through this on some level for three years, and someday I'm going to do a post about what I've learned from this experience...on how really to help someone going through a difficult time.  It's taught me what really matters when people reach out to you...
what really helps.

Truth is... even with all that's going on with us, 
I still feel like the luckiest girl in the world.
I found my soulmate...
My best friend...

 When I think about that...
there's nothing much else to say.

Is it really that simple?
  
Probably not...

So anyway,
here's the update I promised a few posts ago.  
I think I've told you most of this, but I honestly can't remember.

Thanks friends!

Praise God!



Even when life has difficulties... there are always
 silver linings.  
Here's our youngest daughter.  Last night she was baptized in the Youth building of our church.  They built this baptismal on wheels.  Students can be baptized here or in the sanctuary of the main building.

PRAISE GOD... HE IS GOOD... ALL THE TIME!

There is a Brave Girls Camp you can attend in Idaho, which is sold out for the next year.  However, you can do the online class... click here, and look to the right where there is a big blue/green box that says 
Soul Restoration I and II.  
There are also random videos on You Tube if you type in Brave Girls Club.

Be brave!  
Take a chance!  
You won't regret it :)

A Princess Is Born

Things are a little crazy around our house.  We have started daily radiation for Scott, and in the middle of it, he gets the flu!  When it rains it pours.

Here are the promised photos from my granddaughter's birthday.  We took her to Downtown Disney to the 
Bibbidi, Bobbidi, Boutique. 

Hope you enjoy!


Her birthday dinner the night before...Fairyland.

Even a princess can love Buzz Lightyear!


The Paris dress...


The next day... 


Before...


Leila was chosen to be made up in the front window!  
The transformation begins...


Here comes the hairpiece...



Make-up, sparkles, and fairy dust...
    

Here's my mom and I watching through the window. Lexi is watching from inside. Little brother Luke is in the stroller.
   


Almost finished...she has not seen  herself yet...


Seeing herself for the first time... how precious when a little girl figures out that they really are a princess and that dreams really do come true!


Taking part in the Princess Parade...


The king and queen with their princess...


The cover of the next Disney Magazine!  Yea...I think so!

Have an especially princess-y day!
