Happy Day / Sad Day

Today is a day of mixed emotions. First, the happy reason... today is the anniversary of my parent's wedding 36 years ago. I have been so blessed and fortunate to be raised in such a happy and loving home, and I'm so thankful that God has done such an amazing work in their marriage.
Now the sad part... today would have been the estimated due date of the baby we lost back in January. I knew that when this day came, I would be sad, but I truly was hoping that we would have another one on the way to help ease the pain. Well, that is not the case, unfortunately. It's been a tough year and a half of trying, but many good things have happened in this time also. We've made new friends, celebrated Bobby's graduation, moved to this awesome house, reconnected with loved ones here, went on a wonderful vacation to the beach, and much more! So we have a lot to be thankful for, including all of our friends who have been praying for us. We're so excited to see what God has planned for us this year... new school, new jobs, new church, new friends, new pets, and hopefully that little answer to our (big) prayers.
So once again, happy anniversary mom & dad! (I couldn't find a picture from their wedding that I have, so I'll post this one taken a couple years ago, at Jodi's wedding.)
