Thoughts from 2007

It's Ellie's mom with some random thoughts....I can't believe that we are in a brand new year. What a year it has been. I think to sum it up in one word is blessed. To think back to the start of 2007, I couldn't have imagined the paths that we have been taken down. The biggest blessing of 2007 is our kids. Ellie has grown into quite the little firecracker that keeps us constantly on our toes...and we wouldn't want it any other way. She is such a smart, caring, independent, and compassionate little girl. She makes me smile so much that my face hurts at times! God blessed us big time with Ellie. Then, our little (or not so little) fighter, Reid. What an awesome God we have to give us such an amazing little guy. Already his spirit is bigger than life. His smile can light up a room instantly. In the short 8 weeks that he has been here, we have learned a lot more about life than we ever thought we could. He has taught us great patience, understanding, contentment, resilience, compassion, and above all, true love. I met a woman at the Cleveland Neonatal ward when Reid was a patient there, and she said, "Oh, Reid will be your special one." I have thought about the quote a lot, and she is wrong. My 2007 can be summed up with the word BLESSED...because God allowed me to have 2 "special ones" in my life...Ellie and Reid. We can't wait to see what 2008 brings our way. We know that with God ALL things are possible....and we will jump into this New Year together. I have never felt so lucky before. Here is to a wonderful 2008. Blessings to you all....
