The last few weeks...

...have been quite the up and down roller coaster!! My family has been through quite a lot in the last few weeks. That's most of the reason why I haven't blogged in such a long time. Let's just say we really need prayer right now.

On the Tuesday before Christmas, my dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He's still having scans and meeting with doctors to decide on the next step.

On January 1, my brother-in-law, who is a motor cycle police officer for Folsom, was involved in a very bad accident while in duty. He has a severe concussion, which has resulted in some temporary memory loss, a broken clavicle, a broken tibia, broken talus bone in his ankle and a dislocated thumb. He had surgery this past Saturday to repair his tibia and he's having surgery on this coming Tuesday to repair his ankle.

The last few weeks have been quite the whirl-wind.
In the middle of everything, Layton and I were able to enjoy a FABULOUS mini-vacation to Big Sur. It was a nice lull in the storm :) We stayed in a Yurt, went on hikes, ate at a RIDICULOUSLY expensive restaurant, saw a wolf, and just all around had a great time. It was one of the best and most unique trips we've been on in a long time.

I am still trying to count my blessings through these storms. We had a fabulous Christmas with both sides of our families. We truly are blessed with AMAZING families! I am so blessed to have the family and husband that I have. We are definitely bonding together as a family during these difficult times. Please continue to lift my family up in your prayers as we have a difficult next few months ahead of us.

  1. You will always be in my prayers! I know this season has more questions than answers, and I don't have any of the answers but know that I will always be here to listen and lift you up in prayer! I love you dearly and can't wait to see how God works through all of this. Love you friend!
