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.

Angelee's 8th Birthday

My precious darling girl turned 8 years old yesterday. What a joy and treasure this sweet girl is in our lives! She radiates love and joy and just shines like a ray of sunshine!
I loved watching her face as she walked into the lounge to a table full of pressies in her honour. It was quite a big moment for Brett and I giving her her first real "big girl" bicycle! Both of us so vividly remember getting our first real bikes from our parents growing up. Looking at this big bike reminded me just how quickly she is growing up!
 Daddy and Leelee share a precious moment as he reads her our card. I love the bond they share. 
 Pressie time!
 "Thanks Lala for my pretty top! I've been wearing it everyday!"
"And my sparkly dress!!!" She is saving it for her party on Friday ;0) 
 Big sis gives her a lovely pressie ...
And patiently reads all her precious cards from her Granny & Pops & Lala who are overseas. 
 This mommy finally gets a snuggle in and can't stop thanking God for the gift of love that this precious little girl has always so lavishly given to each of us in her family. 
I am truly choosing to savour my time with this little girl, because before I blink she will be a little lady! 
"I love you my Leelee. Thank you for being the most wonderful snuggle-bug and for showing me how much our Jesus loves us! Every time you smile and your eyes sparkle, I'm almost certain that I can see His smile beaming at us through you!"
Love from a very grateful mommy xoxoxox
