Infusing Love: In This Moment

It’s hard to envision what life is going to look like for my little Maddox when he enters preschool or elementary school in a few years. Right now I focus on the moment and each day as Maddox gets older. He had his first birthday last week and off he went. He took his first […]

Infusing Love: Door 1, Nicholas 0

Do you know those moments when you think, “all is right in our lives today?” We have had a few of those moments recently. We had a horribly tough year in 2016. It just seemed that whichever way we looked, something rough was happening to us or our extended family members. 2017 has been a […]

  With a new diagnosis of hemophilia my world was turned upside down. What’s only been 4 months since Maddox was diagnosed feels like a year or two. I feel like I’ve grown so much in just a few months. I have put my life vest on and jumped right in. While, sometimes I’m afraid […]

Infusing Love: The Writing is on The Chalkboard

As I walk through the aisles of our local office supply store, I can’t help but to get a tinge of sadness. The smell of fresh paper, pens, pencils, and crayons are enough for this former teacher to break down right there in the middle of Office Depot. Not that I am unhappy doing what […]
