"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

More Thank-you's!!

I have been wanting to say some more "Thank-you's" for awhile now! Sometimes I get a chance to highlight certain gifts and friendships.  And I miss so many others.  I may not put a picture or an acknowledgement on the blog but I want you to know that I appreciate greatly each and every demonstration of love from you.  When you say that you are praying for us - this is a gift beyond price.  When you send me a note or give us a hug and ask how we are doing (because our blog does not say it all) - those are gifts too.  And I will say it again and again - your expressions of love for us inspire me do the same one day for others.  Because they have been encouragement to me to keep plugging on.  Thank-you. 

You have given me so many ideas - your creativity amazes me. I am listing them all in this pink journal, sent to me by an organization called String of Pearls. (They send a box full of beautiful ideas for honoring and remembering a baby that dies shortly after birth.  I requested it just before Rachel was born. And she was so kind to sent it priority post in case she died at birth.)  I am also recording many of the emails you sent me, starting from that ultrasound appointment that started it all.  I think I have 35 pages already!  I am keeping them so that I can read them later. Thank-you dear friends for walking with us.

The memory book is beautiful and what a precious thing to be able to look back and be reminded of all the people that love you!
