April 14th marked BB's 1 year birthday! We had a celebration fit for a 'little man', complete with mustaches, bow ties, and some cake smashing.
April 18th a dear friend, Daniel, passed away. He had a long, courageous battle with cancer. He is the husband of my best friend, Erin - who is no doubt, hands down, one of the STRONGEST women I know.
We celebrated his life April 23rd.
Watch this video, he left quite the legacy.
Daniel's parents, George & Nancy, are another example to me of strength, but more so faith. They have their only 2 children in Heaven, Daniel & his younger brother Matthew. Matthew passed in a car wreck when he was 15.
Faith is what they exude.
As a Christian, I know that faith is a necessity. To have faith that there is a reason for everything - and that it's God's reason. It's hard though to fathom the "why".
One day though, all questions will be answered....
The month of April brought so much laughter & great memories, but it also brought so many tears. Causes me to want to hug my loved ones a little tighter, and make sure that they all know how much they mean.
Do you have an example of faith in your life?
Do you have a courageous woman in your life?
I gave Erin this bracelet....leave it to me, when I can not find the words to say I use fashion!
This bracelet is called COURAGE. It is one of our 'friendship ties'.
The card it comes on reads: From caring comes strength
How has your April been?
