Since the week of August 6th, my family has spent countless hours just waiting. Waiting for my daughter Willow’s back surgery, waiting for her to heal so she can come home, waiting for our son to arrive. Waiting. Since this was designed to really be a DIY/craft blog, it didn’t seem like the appropriate venue to discuss the details of our current struggles. Most of the pictures that my husband sent home of my daughter after her surgery…were gut wrenching. It was hard to see and I am her mother. Struggling is a common human experience and I do believe that in sharing our story, God can use it to comfort others. That being said, sorry to keep you waiting but I am sure you understand. Right now, my family is just trying to get back into a “normal” routine. Normal being a relative term;) At the end of July I had a consult with KariAnne of Thistlewood farms. It was amazing and I can’t wait to share that experience with you. Please be patient. I have big plans and I would love you to be there with us as we grow.
