Thank you for being a friend: to those who support us on our journey as a heart family

Dear friends and family

From the day we found out about Jessica’s heart condition, you have been there supporting us, encouraging us, praying for us. You have cried with us, held your breath in hope with us and celebrated each successful step of the journey with us.

Beach on the Isle of Man - What I'm thankful for this week - Little Hearts, Big Love

What I’m thankful for this week

I always enjoy reflecting on the past week in my regular Friday Focus feature. This week, I’m taking a different approach and reflecting on the things that I’m thankful for instead:

 

  • Having very limited internet connection whilst on holiday. It’s meant I’ve taken a very big step away from the blog this week and completely focused on time with my family instead – and I’m so glad I did.

Friday 13th – a day that changed our lives forever

Friday 13th May 2011. A day that was hugely significant for us; a hospital appointment that would change our lives forever. Looking back, I recall it as a series of flashback moments. Walking into the hospital holding hubby’s hand, my legs shaking and a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach.… Read more

Four years of being a heart family

Four years ago, we walked into a scan room full of excitement at the prospect of getting to see our baby and left with our world turned completely upside-down. Four years since we started our journey as a heart family. Four years ago, we were devastated and scared, not knowing where or how we would find the strength for the steps that lay ahead and clinging to our faith and belief that somehow God would help us endure what had to be endured.… Read more

40acts: Week 6

It’s the penultimate week of 40acts with just six more acts left to go. Once again I’ve been focusing on green and yellow challenges but perhaps I will manage to tick off a red one again next week! One of the things I love about 40acts is the way it makes me think more about things I can do to make a difference and how it has the power to change some of my actions longer-term.… Read more

Me and You – March

Today’s 40acts challenge is to ‘bless the boss’ and one of the suggested challenges involves writing them a letter to say ‘thank you’. As I work part-time for my husband’s company, my hubby is also my boss and so for this month’s ‘Me and You’ post, I thought I would combine the two and reflect on the things that I am thankful for:

Me and You - March: Thank you hubby - Little Hearts, Big Love

Thank you hubby for the big things:

  • For being my rock and providing me with love, strength and support during all the dark and difficult moments we have gone through since the day we became heart parents.
