all in the family | April 24, 2012
This family is precious. I believe that tells you everything you need to know about them, but in our current day of too many words and adjectives, I'm compelled to go on about how wonderful they are and tell you how we met.
My friend called me one day and told me that one of the kids in this family spends several months out of the year in the hospital. Day in, day out, not leaving those 4 walls. She thought it would be fun (&special) for them to have pictures made of their entire family if we could arrange to do it in a season where everyone was well...and together. So that's just what we did. To say we had fun doing it is a colossal understatement.
Learning about what families endure and how they respond to difficult situations in life never looks like what I think it will look like. People blow me away with their faith and gratitude for what they are given every day. Meeting people like this family, touches my life and inspires me to want to be a better person. It's beautiful. They're beautiful. Today is beautiful.
