Blog? What blog?!
Oh, yes, I do have a blog, don't I?! I am not doing so well at keeping up with this poor neglected thing lately. Maybe it is because I feel as though I have been completely blasted off the highway of life. When I finally scraped myself up and headed back into the fray, I was blasted off again. And now, I admit that I am almost afraid of the phone. I am also grappling with a lot of big thoughts and changed perspectives. And grief. Good night, I think I have cried too much lately. Funny thing is that I am not much of a "crier." Oh, I always tear up at sentimental things, but I do not usually cry about life unless I am absolutely drowning in stress and frustration. Yet I think I have cried more since the first part of January than I have in the entire last decade of my life! Right now I just want to pack up my little family and run to

That peaceful spot in Georgia where my cell phone doesn't work and life seems to go away. But since I am in the real world, I can't just "go away." So when my thoughts are not so jumbled (and I can find my sense of humor), I will post the better details of what is going on in our lives, but since I cannot seem to post without a picture or two. . .
My 15 month old preemie that weighs 30+ pounds.

Seth - 9, Ethan - 6, Silas - 15 months.

My cutie patootie.

I've been thinking about you a lot lately. I follow WYFF news even though I am very far away. I know of the new tragedy and I know how your heart must be aching. I pray that God will give you comfort during these trying times.

Still praying for you family, and the others touched by the Bigger family tragedy.

And I do love the bookworm's reading nook and the gigantic preemie!

I have missed your posts, and also have been thinking much about you and your family... been praying for the families of the Bigger family. I wish I could give you a hug, but that is a little impossible, but do know that I care, and we are sorry about this painful time you are going through. It truly is sad.

I do LOVE LOVE LOVE the pictures! Your baby is HUGE! I do believe he outweighs Charity who is nearly 3. I saw the Manley's picture you sent them, and was very impressed by your big boys! She was showing Electa, and I had to get a peek. They are growing up to be handsome little men. That picture of Ethan reading in that position is hilarious!
I sooo wish we lived closer, I would love to visit you... actually, I know of a way I could visit you, but I am not sure if it works into any nearby schedule... I will mention it to Ron, but no promises.
Hey, you want to know something cool... MY GIRLS WASH DISHES NOW! Yesterday, Faith washed, Charity rinsed, and I inspected and put away. I had to have them rewash a few, but not too many. The counters get a bit wet, but they LOVE doing it!
Love ya, and maybe I will give you another call later.

You all have been in my thoughts and prayers! As much as this has bothered me and I don't know the family persoanlly. I CANNOT imagine how this has impacted you all! By God's grace we will understand it better by and by.....

Take Care!!!

P.S. I enjoyed the cute photos of your little men!!

Rachelle really enjoyed staying with you and talking with you on tour. She said the perspective you had was so good.

We can relate to changed perspectives.

Thanks for being you.

I am so sorry for all of you that were touched by the recent tragedies - I realized that there are just some things that happen in life that there is no way to prepare for - that was one of them.

Enjoyed seeing your new pictures, your baby is one hunka chunka, cute as could be!

Martha, been missing your blogs. I know many of us have been floored by the tragedies. We don't understand; we just have to trust Him as God.
Your boys are sooo cute! I miss my baby Silas!

Cute pictures of your kids!
The first picture looks so inviting--peaceful & quiet!

Your boys look so sweet together--and that baby! Kiss his cheeks for me, will you? :o)
