A Different Path

A SMALL portion of the yarn we have received.
Today, I am walking a different path than I had planned out for myself. That's because I am not in control; God is. Overwhelmed no longer seems to do justice to how I feel. I don't think that there is a word. I have been amazed at the response we have received to Barrett's Blankets. I pray that this will help other moms and dads out there.

In 2 days we will celebrate Barrett's one month birthday. Yes, celebrate. Balloons, cupcakes, candles and presents--everything a little boy could want. His sister is extremely excited about this.

One month ago, I dreaded anniversaries like this as we passed moments that should have been milestones in Barrett's life. I thought these days would be the hardest. I am not naive. I know that I will have my moments Sunday, but I also hope that my joy overflows as we celebrate Barrett's life. We have so much to celebrate and be thankful for.

For us, Sunday will be a time of joy, celebration, and praise. We celebrate the son we were given and the impact he has already had on so many lives. We praise our Savior, Jesus Christ, for blessing us with a beautiful baby boy. I am so PROUD to be Barrett's mommy.

There is no foot too small that cannot leave an imprint on the world--
