A little getaway.

We left for a long weekend at the beach bright and early on Saturday morning.  It was a much needed break after all the traveling my husband has been doing lately.

Last week was a rough week. A mom from the MOM's group I belong to lost her 15 month old baby.  She died unexpectedly in her sleep.  Another mom from this same group has a 5 year old who underwent a bone marrow transplant last year in an attempt to prevent leukemia.  Everyone thought she had beaten it until last week when tests revealed that she has AML leukemia.  The doctors said she had a slight chance to beat the leukemia with 3 times a day chemo treatments or they could send her home with hospice and 3 weeks to live.  Needless to say, the parents chose to fight and we have been praying fervently for a miracle ever since.

So I spent this past weekend really thanking God for my husband and my kids.

Here are a few pictures from our time at the beach:

What a fun getaway! Makes special memories.

So sad and hard-the things your friends are going through. It seems like there are sad situations and hard things everywhere. It always makes me appreciate my family more, yet so sad for the ones walking the path. Life just hurts sometimes.

Looks like you had a great time!
Sorry for the tough things your friends are dealing with though. It puts my little issues in perspective.
