We are still currently in the mountains in Gatlinburg but thought I would give you an update on my Grandmother. She's still in the hospital and things are better in some ways and not so much in others. I don't know what the next few days will bring but we went out to eat for her 87th birthday a week ago and I got these pictures. I am so grateful that I made Alex go back out to the car to get the camera. Pictures so often mean more than just the smile behind them.
She has always loved me and my girls so very much. She still needs your prayers and my whole family does too. On a lighter note, we are having a nice time up here and I'll be sure to post some pictures of our adventues for you soon.
Don't tell God how big your storm is, tell the storm how big your God is.
"No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” I Corinthians 2:9
How can your heart not break when you lose a loved one, or when a child suffers, or even when somebody's beloved pet gets hit by a car? But broken hearts are what give us strength and understanding and compassion. A heart never broken is pristine and sterile and will never know the joy of being imperfect.
Parents rejoice when their children turn out well; wise children become proud parents. So make your father happy! Make your mother proud! Proverbs 23
About My Blog
Hi! I hope you enjoy the adventures of my fascinating family of 5! My loving and amusing husband Alex is my best friend. I have 3 beautiful girlies! Sweet Clara Paige is our oldest who is 8. Maggie and Gracie are our adorable twins who are both 7 going on 17. It's no wonder I've nicknamed our family the Hicks Circus. Add our Dog Kelsey and we certainly have a 3 ring circus on our hands and I wouldn't have it any other way!
