About Me

My photo
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 (15) and Angelee (12) 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. 3 years ago our faithful Great Restorer graciously blessed us once again with another son ... our beloved Gabriel ... a ray of sunshine in all our lives! "Love in Action" is our journey as a family to love the way Jesus is teaching us to love and live.

Watching her bloom

Today was a big day for our family. We watched our little girl all of a sudden grow up in front of our eyes and enter big school with such peace and confidence. Our little Angelee is finally at big school with her protective big sis!
On the way to school ...
Talk about Daddy's little mini-me. I just LOVE this pic!
And I am also so jolly proud of my big girl for taking this photo for us. A photographer in the making!
Today my heart is rejoicing that I am given the privilege of watching these two beautiful daughters of ours bloom. My heart rejoices at the thought of what adventures lie in store for us as a family this year. Our precious Zac is our constant reminder to live each day finding the reason to celebrate. I am going to sleep with a smile on my face having watched my little girl rise to the occasion and tackle her first day so bravely. Well done my Leelee! 
All my love xxx

Another milestone. Letting go is hard ... but the pictures are so beautiful.
Cherish these girls every day! They are a blessing.

Oh, she is so beautiful. I am so happy for you and your family to have had such a sweet moment to share. I know after losing two of our babies, my husband and I cherish those moments so MUCH more then before. Our eyes are opened to our children in a way they never have been before. I know you are one proud Mommy. Milestones like that are I believe bigger for the Mommies then the little ones.

Congratulations Angelee!!

(and Mommy!!!)
