Sometimes I wonder how the world really looks from a 3 year olds perspective and then Zeb will give me just little glimpse of his perspective and it makes my day. I thought I would share.  Last night we were waiting in the car for Daddy while he was in the phone store ( it takes FOREVER) and Zeb said out of the blue: 
" Mommy when you are sick, you don't drive a car."  Me:  " Really?"   ( I know immediately he is thinking about my Grandma whom we help to take care of , she is 88, and has never driven yet he does not know this. )  Zeb: " Actually (his new big word) when you are sick you can't jump on the trampoline."    ( This of course breaks my heart, because I know immediately what he means)   Me:  " Well, You can jump on the trampoline now buddy! "   He then grabs me in the biggest hug around my neck you can imagine and with the biggest grin ever looks me eye to eye and says:  " I CAN DRIVE A CAR TOO!! "

SO that folks is Zebology!! He can do anything!! Yes ...I want him to know that he can do ANYTHING and YES he can drive a car...just not at 3 years old, I am still laughing about that face and that comment. It was one of those you had to be there to get the full effect but it was GREAT!!

Much Love and Many Blessings,

SEE ~ A Tribute to the Angels

*** note you will have to mute my music player at page bottom  to hear video ***

This past month has been just heart wrenching in the CHD world all the precious angels that have flown into the the arms of Jesus. As a mom of a child with CHD it was just too much to bear, however it wasn't even a small amount of what the mothers and fathers have had to bear in their loss. I cannot imagine. I cannot see.  Today, one of my dear friends, who lost their precious son Isaac asked  had I heard this song.  This song was written by Steven Curtis Chapman for his beautiful daughter Maria that he lost in a tragic accident. It captures something, I cannot explain. It is truly of God, it is amazing. I do not know what it is like to lose a child, I pray that I never do,  but I pray that one day we will See what God has for us.  I dedicated this song to Isaac, to Annabelle, to Cora, to Joshua, to Ewan, to Emma, and to all the many other beautiful angels that have flown into the arms of Jesus. I know one day we will all SEE.

From one mother's heart to another, I love you and I love your babies too. God Bless you and Keep you until we all SEE...I pray for you daily.

Many Blessings,
Rhonda :)

Sometimes 9 is a Big Number..... :(

If you have 9 dollars you don't have much...

If you have 9 cookies you still don't have a dozen..

If you have 9 days off a year, you don't have much time off...

but when you have 9 children die of Congenital Heart Defects in a week just in the circle of CHD Mom's you know about it is 9 too many, 9 families planning funerals, 9 families hearts breaking.. Even 1 is too many!

I have not been able to get this off my mind this week, I have cried and cried, it has taken my breath, I have prayed and cried out for these mothers. I will admit I have been angry, I have questioned God, I do not understand.  It is not fair.  This beast called CHD continues to rage, and still there is not enough research, there is not enough funding, there is not enough awareness and for some there is not enough time. Do all you can ...help spread awareness, help fund research;  http://www.hopeforbravehearts.org/

Please continue to pray for all of these families each one of them need your prayers, http://www.team-ewan.com/ and http://www.fierceandfiesty.blogspot.com/, these are just two, sweet Ewan and Sweet Joshua. 
We love you Sweet Angels and we will meet you all again one day.

If anything Lord, Please help us not to take one day for Granted, to try not to complain, to remember that each day is a gift and that we are Blessed.

Much Love,
