My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

It's about learning how to dance in the rain."

thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

I mentioned that I'd seen and photographed 2 miracles last week.

Here's the first one:

Gator boy at 8 days old.....

Gator boy turned Six Years Old!!
a very healthy and very happy BIG boy!

Here's the other:

Sonshine, has vestibular intolerance. For years and years and years we worked to get him to SIT on a swing.....a non-moving swing. He freaked out if the ground he was on wasn't completely solid and firm.

Yet here he is, age 7,


across a

bridge, all by himself. Without ANY prompting or encouragement from me!!

You can't imagine how cool it was to watch him do this oh-so-nonchalantly!!

Thank God for the miracles you see every day!!!

That is such a cool pik of the kids. Happy Birthday to the birthday boy and you and SV are doing what many parents could never do! Kudos to you both. You have a FANTASTIC family.

Sorry I've not been by to visit in awhile, it seems that life keeps getting in the way of the blog these days!

First off though I love, love, love, love your new header picture! The perspective is totally fantastic as the kids look so small next to those huge trees. Fantastic!

And even more fantastic is that big smile on Gator Boy's face as well as Sonshine's milestone in crossing a rope bridge all by himself. Miracles indeed! And very, very happy ones at that!
