Baby Blessing...

It was the sweetest experience ever to be invited back to Tristan's baby blessing.

It was Jim's first to stand in on, and he was so honored.
After all this family has been through, fighting for life each day from the beginning and then the loss of everything in their house fire just 3 days prior, it was the biggest testimony of faith and my heart was so touched.   Tristan's great grandfather blessed her and it was so sweet and precious.

Her aunt had made her a special dress and Mom, when asked about the beautiful dress she was wearing, just gracefully said "the one that was made especially for her, well isn't here for obvious reasons" and she just accepted the sadness of that, and was so thankful she had a new one to wear.  

Keep putting one foot in front of the other... it is such a hard thing to do, but I know sometimes that is just what God is watching to make sure we do, and He is so excited when we do it with such grace as this Mom.  She was amazing!

I didn't know you knew these guys... they lived a couple houses down from us. Don't know them well but I sure feel for everything they have gone through this year.
