happy 10 months with Jesus, Gracen Faith.

so proud of my military man
so proud of our sweat pea
It's hard to believe we would have a 10 month old Gracen scooting around... but it's even harder to believe we don't. 

We miss her every day, often every moment of every day!  Ryan and I talk so often about the "missing."  It's hard to put into words... but its just a constant feeling of missing.  The Lord giving us Gracen is nothing but the most precious gift.  The overwhelming awe of all God has done and is doing is nothing short of His perfect, great plan.  It has been and is so good, and there is so much good to come ... please pray for us in this season of awaiting what God has for us next.. we are hopeful, and excited, and ready.  Since Ryan has been home from his deployment (eee!!) we have been working on that "new normal" we hear about.  Life moves on, it has and will and it's really hard accepting that.  We are learning, praying, trying to live our life with gratefulness.  Gratefulness for God's will for us, including His will for our daughter.

One day we will all be together again.  Just a moment there, is better than here...

Thank you family and friends showing us so much love.  big, big hugs to you all xoxoxo


  1. We are so proud of Gracen and miss her too. Parker Gracen has a wonderful example to follow in Gracen Faith!

  2. I was literally just thinking about you the other day and praying for your hearts. I am so glad Ryan is home now. I can't believe we have all been without Gracen for 10 months. I hate how time can keep going. I believe God is continuing to use Gracen in this world to bless people. I pray for this next season of your life to be filled with Hope and Joy, not that anyone could replace her, but there can be victory and smiles once again.

  3. I think of you often, friend. I remember our visit at Cracker Barrell, and I just loved our time together, visiting, sharing, and realizing how our hearts are so much alike because of the common bond we unfortunately share. I love you and continue to have you on my mind. I am thankful R is home with you, and I pray for God's blessings, and soon! I hope to hear from you when you come back this way...I am always here, never forget that! ;) Love ya, sweet Dayna!
