Happy Monday….(sharing some fun news)!

I meant to share the exciting news with you all on Friday, but became distracted by the first-ever Parents of Preemies Day !

{For those of you know our story, you understand why this day was something near and dear to our hearts; for those of you who may not know our story, go here to read about our miracle daughter’s birth!}

This special day, which featured a live event in Toledo, Ohio, was produced by Graham’s Foundation. It was sponsored by several supporting organizations, one of which was a locally based group that I am proud to have recently joined—Preemies Today. I was encouraged to see so many organizations join forces to set aside a specific day to honor parents of preemies and continue to build support for them in “recognizing the courage and commitment it takes to stay strong and resilient when premature birth turns a family's world upside down.” {See the Parents of Preemies Day website, or their Facebook page for more information.}

The day caused me to pause and reflect on how far Cami has come. We praise the Lord for His healing hand upon her, as well as the prayers and support we received from so many of our family and friends during the time of Cami’s hospitalization! When I compare the picture of her then camibornstats 

to who she is now,

so many emotions fill my heart I can not even begin to adequately express them.

Now, to the news I forgot to share on Friday….

I got to write my first-ever Guest Post!

A few weeks ago, Renee at Living, Laughing, and Loving had asked if I would be interested in writing a guest post while she and her husband were on an anniversary vacation in Williamsburg…and I was more than happy to oblige! =)

Even though it was posted to her blog on Friday—and today is now Monday!—I’d love for you to take a minute to head over there to read about what Lucas said a few weeks ago; something I will never forget!

Happy Monday, everyone!
