Perparing

Today was a day of getting ready for our trip to Alison's. I also came up with a cool gift idea for Alison and Tom so we got that together too. I will post it tomorrow and let you in on it. It was also a family day, we hung out by the lake and relax. I always find myself getting stress out once it starts getting closer to leave for Alison's. So I really tried today not to get that way. Chad knows how I get so he was big help also. I always over pack for the girls and I. It's hard because you never know what you'll need for them. I have been trying to leave things for the girls at Alison's house so I don't have to take so much, so that has help.
I spoke to Alison for a few minutes today. My brother Mike was there visiting so we didn't talk to long. I know that things have been rough for her these past few days. She had to get blood already which is and was very fast for her. Normal it last at least a month if not longer. I know that once I get down there it will hit it a lot harder. Not that my faith has change. But I think that maybe it hasn't been so hard for me yet because I haven't seen her since all of this has change. She totally amazes me how STRONG she can be. I'm not for sure if I could be that strong if it was me going through all of this. I look forward to being able to spend these next days with her, Tom and all my other family member that will be around. I know that I talk about how strong Alison is but Tom is just as STRONG. He is her rock and I'm so glad that God put them together. Who would of know the first time they meet each other that would end up together. It's not such a big world after all.

Isn't it seriously amazing how God always makes things fall into place? You have no clue what the future is going to give you but you can know that He will always give you who and what you need to get through it and sometimes it seriously shocks me how it all works out. I'm praying for you guys!

Rene,
Thanks for your updates of Big Sis Ali's situation.
You have such a loving heart!
I can't imagine what you are going through but I do know that God is with you during this very difficult time.
By the way, you are a fabulous photographer. The pictures of girls are very professional.
XOXO,
