Awaiting change.

Here we are again. Another long pause in between posts for me. I thought I would take a little break because I sometimes (in my own little world) feel as though people might get tired of hearing about Savannah. She is still very real to me, even though she sits in heaven with her days filled with grace and glory.

But just because I could sit around talking about her all day
doesn't mean everyone else wants to hear about it...

Can you believe it is already October. Being we live in Redding, California, just a week ago we were still having days that reached 104 degrees! I was having doubts that I would ever get the comforting feeling of fall gracing me with it's presence! Two days ago, I walked outside and was pleasently greeted with the familiar smell of cool autumn air! I look forward to fall every year. I, myself, am a lover of every season! Variety & change is all I ask for. But when I am done with one... it means I want the season to change that very instant. Summer brought many wonderful things this year, the third trimester, fun with my family, and of course meeting Miss. Savannah!

But it also brought some saddness as it came to a close...
so I am ready {and waiting} for that instant change.

Some of the trees are beginning to change colors, but not enough to give that very noticable "painters canvas" look. This month brings alot of excitement, as we anticipate trips to the pumpkin patch, pulling out sweaters, and sipping hot chocolate! Mmmm...

Being this year is Savannah's first Halloween, we stopped by to see her the other day and took her, her very own... pumpkin! See?!!

{Her new headstone, should be here in a few weeks!!}

I am so very, very sorry for your loss. I lost my on to CDH too. His story is at

I volunteer at CHERUBS in his memory now and other than being his mom, it's the most rewarding thing I've ever done in my life.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog the other day. This is the first chance I have had to stop by and really meet you. I did stop by early this week for a moment but only had time to read a few lines then.

Today I just read your last post and I still hear the pain in your writing about your sweet Savannah.
I just wrote a new post this morning on Brokenness, I do hope you will stop by and read it.
It is so very hard at times to go through the trials of this life but as you said in your writing, you feel as if God wants to use you and your family.

It has been a pleasure to meet you and I am sure I will make frequent stops by your blog.
God Bless.
