3 Months and 2 Years

Today Oliver is three months old. We have spent the last three months soaking up every minute with him. He is a joy beyond what we had ever hoped. And yet I've come to realize that in this life our joys are mixed with sorrow. All day today I've also been thinking about my sister-in-law. It was two years ago today that her oldest son, Tyler, died. To say that Tyler was a sweet kid is an understatement. I can't remember many times when Tyler didn't have a smile on his face. Joy and sorrow mixed together on this day. And gratitude for both Oliver and Tyler.

    My heart goes out to Christy!! I find it cause for wonder what God is up to that a brother and sister each loose a child? I can tell you that you and Brandon have been such a encouragement these past 2 years. Having known him from first grade - I am SO PROUD of him and so grateful to God for the faith you both walk in.

    As for Oliver - he is just way too cute!!
    We have a Great-grandson born in June. He is also very very cute but I must admit Oliver is ADORABLE! I can't imagine how much Del and Donna are enjoying him.

    Blessings on all of you,
