wife. mom. adjunct professor. we homeschool. i'm a little bit OCD. i love math. bright colors and geometric designs make me drool. we live with a medical rarity, and Jesus saved his life. through that, Jesus is changing us. The american dream and status quo is overrated...and sometimes just plain wrong. our lives, our family, our careers, our faith are all now filtered through a new lens-- thank you Jesus. welcome to our crazy. feel free to take some of it with you, we have plenty to go around.
It's not the load that breaks you down; it's the way you carry it.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.-- Jesus Christ

no news really.....

Ridge is having a boring day. I know we're supposed to be excited about boring days...and we are. But they are still...boring. The poop-- greenish. We'll take it. It's like a typical baby poop green, not an "on the verge of becoming black" green. Spitup- rare, but normal. He's eating fine and still trying to figure out how to roll over. He's never ever ever peed into the air when I change his diaper (although he has gotten several OTHER people when they change his diaper)...but today, he let it flow while I was putting a diaper on him. Good job, Ridge. He's been jabbering and singing today...yes, he sings. He does.

Sawyer's having allergies big time; I have something like that going on b/c my head is killing me. Update on the hideous shoes-those sweet nikes that were ALSO in the picture...well, I had a dentist appt. at 2:00 yesterday and happened to get into town around 1:30...Kohl's is near my dentist's, you got it. We are now the proud owners of some sweet kicks! And I'm NOT talking about the light' sho! :)

Well...that's about all I've got. I don't have any words of inspiration today...just sitting and waiting...I hope wherever life is finding you right now, you are remembering that you are being watched matter how big your problems are, you will be taken care of. This situation has shown us that. This is HUGE to us..but I know there are people going through SO much more than we are going through. God has met our every need, and I know he will continue to do so...

So wherever you are- illness, frustration, marital issues, job issues, financial problems....whatever it is...sit back. Be amazed.

Alisha, I love your honest day to day talk. You express life as it is and you are such an inspiration. Someday you will look back and know why you guys had to go through all of this but for now we continue to pray and lift you and your sweet little family up for Him to bless you. Love you, Laurie

Alisha and Brandon, just wanted you to know that we haven't forgotten you and are still praying for Ridge, for you all as you care for him, for Sawyer-the-shoe-man. The power of your testimony is far-reaching and has certainly touched my heart. Thanks for sharing so openly and for being so transparent, because that is such an encouragement to others who are facing challenges. We love you.
