“I love you more than I have ever found a way to say to you” ~ Ben Folds Since it’s nighttime and I just put my precious E & Q down to sleep, I want to say thank you to everyone who visited us today and for those who did and felt moved by “Welcome to Holland,” here is what I think E would have said to me before she went to sleep.

“From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.” ~ Dr. Seuss As I have mentioned before, since I was a child and even now, I am a fairly serious person.

Today is April 6, a big day for us as it is the adjusted birthday of the babies, they are officially 15 months and this time … Continue reading A Question of… Fate? Yes, I think it is.
“When you have come to the edge Of all light that you know And are about to drop off into the darkness Of the unknown, Faith is knowing One of two things will happen: There will be something solid to stand on or You will be taught to fly” ~ Patrick Overton Today is one of the days that is the worst for me, “the day before”. The day before we go to the pulmonologist to have E’s lungs assessed and the day before we go to the Neurologist for E’s follow-up appointment. Fear for me lies in the anticipation, … Continue reading A lesson in true love…
