Joyful, loving hearts

We are so thankful everyone is healthy again!
I am so joyful to be spending my days with these three. They are very fun to be around!


Each boy had to take a turn acting goofy.


Something about a boy and his dog. Especially these two blondes.

 Nellie is SO smart. Sure she has some annoying puppy behaviors, but this dog is very smart and sweet. She LOVES playing fetch. She also LOVES chasing bubbles. She and I have a bond. I sometimes go to bed at night thinking, why didn't I spend more time with this pup today? And when she ran off with the neighbor girl's Barbie doll and the next day a motorcycle helmet she found next door, I felt a bit shameful. She seems to be a little trouble maker when she hasn't had chunks of time with the Jansens.

I believe that after a person experiences life's greatest sadnesses, one can also experience life's greatest joys.

With Natasha's physical heart, something abnormal was discovered. This is concerning and should be taken seriously. But I know that her heart, whether damaged or not, is beautiful. In so many ways, it is where it should be.
I am praying for Natasha's heart, my heart, my other siblings' hearts, our childrens' hearts. And as I do that, I am so thankful for the love I see in these hearts. Truly a gift from God. Joyful, loving hearts.

I'm so sorry to hear about your sister! But you really have such a great outlook on things, it is inspiring :) Hope things improve for her.

BTW, I'm so jealous of your photography skills. I need to just just break down and buy a camera like yours :)
