Ashley's Story

She will leave fingerprints all over your heart


Happiness Is...

Listening to Allie and her BFF sing Taylor Swift at the top of their lungs, never missing a word, with absolutely no reservations. Just loud and proud. Love them!

Watching Blake and his teammates give fist bumps after each run scored. Love that he is part of something bigger than himself:)

Lunch on the patio with my mom and Ashley Kate on a beautiful spring day.

The splish and splash of the water as Ashley Kate sits on the steps of the pool and kicks her feet in the warm water.

Freshly planted flower beds.

A little girls laughter seeping around the corners of our home from her playroom.

Chats with a close friend while I drive the road toward whatever baseball field Blake is playing at.

Holding hands with Dave.

24 hours fever free with no antibiotics:)

Baby birds chirping from the nest that their momma built in our garage. It has been amazing to watch her take care of those four precious lives each day.

Saturday afternoons at home, the smell of freshly cut grass, and steaks on the grill.

Palm trees and the joy they bring to our Ashley. We bought her one to enjoy right here at home this week so I don't have to sit in the parking lots of the local Whataburgers anymore:)

Shopping with Allie.

Hugging Dave in the front yard in front of God and everybody.


Being present in each moment I'm living. Absorbing the time. Burning the memories. Making the most of it.

In the midst of all the unknowns, the uncertainty, the hurt, the tears, the late nights, the prognosis', the doctors visits, the infections, etc., I'm still finding happiness. Its the littlest things in my life that bring me true joy.
