fall fun.

In the midst of this time of grieving for our family we have had some moments of fun and even of joy.  At first, I didn't think it was possible to do anything fun without Nora in our life.  But the Lord has been gracious to us and we are a testimony that he does turn mourning into gladness. Even if it's just for a moment here and there these days. 

Here is a glimpse of some of our joys in the midst of sadness this fall.

Nora's Tree

Some really sweet and wonderful friends and family members gave us a pink dogwood tree to plant in our yard in memory of Nora.  We love it.  We love looking at it and being reminded of her life.  

We told Coleman that it is Nora's tree.  When we ask him where Nora lives, he says "with Jesus".  (Although sometimes he also will sometimes say "nooooo momma" telling me that we talk about her A LOT!) 

He likes to help me water Nora's tree and he likes to play there.  
I like it too.  Feels like we're all together, even for just a moment.
