I’m so glad you are back, Ethel! It was such a delight reading your comments as you got caught up on the blog! I’m so very sorry for the loss of your sister. My heart hurts for you as I know how special that sisterly bond is. Nothing can break that precious bond, not even death. I pray that you will be granted peace and comfort, abundant joy.
I have so much I want to write, but here it is late again and I NEED to sleep! Just a quick update on Nora ~ She is still having some belly troubles which will be bringing us to the pediatrician again tomorrow morning bright and early. She remains in great spirits, has a great appetite and does not seem to be sickly. That’s been reassuring!
Here are pictures from the past few days. She’s as cute and sweet as ever ~
“Dissss is what I liiike!!!!”

I posted yesterday on Facebook, “I’m tired, I’m worn……” quoting the Tenth Avenue North song that has become our anthem of late:
Yes, I feel so tired and worn somedays. I get discouraged when these days seem never-ending, one blending right into the next and barely discernible from each the other. I miss the way life used to be, but couldn’t be without the way it is now.
(To be continued… )
“Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don’t be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. He will see to it that all the work related to the Temple of the Lord is finished correctly.”
(1 Chronicles 28:20 NLT)
“I miss the way life used to be, but couldn’t be without the way it is now.” -Love your honesty here…and you said it in such a lovely way. Have a great weekend and hope you can catch up on sleep.
Hi Aleisa, I am from Cincinnati, OH and I have been following your blog since last spring. I am currently a college student and working on a project about ethical issues, and the journey of you and your family with Nora has been in the back of my mind as I have picked a topic and I am now working on a presentation. I was wondering if you would be okay with me showing a picture and referencing to your family and Nora during my presentation? It would all be in a positive manner, and my project is about the dignity of all human life. Your blog has been an inspiration since I began following it, and I continue to pray for your family.
HI ALEISA: SO GLAD I AM ABLE TO KEEP UP TO DATE NOW. THANK YOU FOR THE NICE WORDS YOU HAVE WRITTEN TO ME. YOU ARE RIGHT A SISTER’S BOND CANNOT BE BROKEN BY DEATH. OUR FAMILY IS LIKE YOUR’S. SO VERY CLOSE AND LOVE EACH OTHER SO MUCH. I HATE THAT NORA IS STILL HAVING BELLY PROBLEMS, AND AM ANXIOUS TO KNOW WHAT HER DOCTOR SAYS. SHE HAS BEEN SUCH AN INSPIRATION TO SO MANY PEOPLE, AND HAS EVEN BROUGHT A LOT OF PEOPLE CLOSER TO GOD. SHE IS THE SWEETEST LITTLE GIRL, AND LOVED BY SO MANY ALL OVER THE WORLD. TELL GRETA SHE LOOKS SO CUTE WITH YOU BABY TOOTH GONE, BUT SHE IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE GROWING UP SO FAST. I AM SO HAPPY THAT EVERYONE IS FEELING BETTER AND CAN ALL BE TOGETHER AGAIN. I WILL BE PRAYING THAT NORA GETS GOOD NEWS TOMORROW. I LOVE YOU ALL VERY MUCH, AND PRAY THAT YOU ARE GETTING A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP. GUESS THAT IS THE WAY I BETTER BE GOING ALSO, SINCE IT IS 4:33 A.M. I WILL CHECK BACK IN TOMORROW TO SEE HOW OUR LITTLE PROPHET NORA IS DOING. GOOD NIGHT AND GOD BLESS.
WELL HERE I AM RIGHT BACK. I FORGOT TO MENTION ALL THE CARDINALS IN THAT TREE. I CANNOT BELIEVE HOW MANY THERE IS. I LOVE THAT PICTURE. THANK YOU FOR SHARING IT WITH US.
