About Me

South Africa
My husband, Brett and I live in beautiful South Africa and have been blessed with the most precious family. We have 2 very beautiful and brave daughters, Tianna and Angelee and a very precious little boy called Zac who touched our hearts forever in his 1 day here on earth. We never would have imagined that we would have to live this side of Heaven without our sweet boy who was born with half a heart, but every day Jesus carries us through and is teaching us more than ever how to live, laugh and love fully. A year and a half later, our faithful Great Restorer graciously blessed us once again with another son ... our beloved Gabriel ... a ray of sunshine in all our lives! This blog has been a place where I have been able to journal my journey through loss, hope and choosing to live a life rich in love.

Precious Memories

One thing I am sentimental about is creating memories. I personally believe that we are all given choices each day of the type of memories we want to create. 
Last night I was feeling so homesick. I am missing my sweet girls and my precious gorgeousness something fierce. Then the opportunity arose to create a wonderful memory. My two sweet nieces came and had a "sleep-over" in my bedroom last night. We giggled like little school girls (that's because they are little school girls. Me - I had no excuse =0). I wish I could have taken some photos to share of our fun but my camera died on me. There were mattresses on the floor, blankets and teddy bears every where. At the age of 33 I too was presented with a favourite teddy to sleep with. I have to say it came in handy as I am missing my big handsome teddy-bear back home =) 
Today held more precious memories. The best in seeing my sweet Gran and mom embrace after a long year apart. What a joy to see their eyes light up as they embraced. A priceless moment indeed. 
I am going to sleep with my heart full to overflowing. 
All my love,
Janine xxx

I'm so sorry to hear that your Grandma isn't doing well. Hearing about her reunion with your mother brought tears to my eyes. Enjoy this time together. These will be memories that will remain in your heart forever. Take care!
