    Have you seen the alphabet leters? I bought the letters of my name and have them framed in my house…love the “love “letters you found!

    I had forgotten completely about that photo trick! I want to make a family name for us and frame it for our entryway. So clever!

  3. Love that you are feeling the love. And that you let yourself hit the wall yesterday. The wall is inevitable, you know. It’s gonna happen when you’re under this much stress, no matter how hard you try to avoid it. I always feel better after I hit the wall and just LOSE IT for a little bit. I’ve said for 3 years now that kids with complex medical issues should just have someone on hospital staff whose job it is to coordinate it all and make life a tiny bit easier for the parents. Praying for you and David. Enjoy Valentine’s Day with your 3 boys!!!

    Thank you for showing all of us who follow you the beauty and other reminders of a divine presence in this earthly life… I appreciated the beautiful blossoms, the lovely vintage painting and the many photos of your precious sons from previous posts… and I enjoyed seeing the pictures from this blog reassuring us that love is all around us– often hidden, but there to see for those who look… I also want you to know that I will keep on praying for you and your family as little David continues to go through tests, procedures, and another surgery. May God bless and keep you all.

    Your bilboard photo gave me shivers. The phrase LOVE, LOVE, LOVE is being tossed around the blogosphere a lot lately in honor of Eva Markvoort. Eva is a young woman with cystic fibrosis who is reaching the end of her battle. She posted a very moving good-bye on her live journal ( yesterday. She’s a brave and beautiful fighter. Please keep her in your prayers as this part of her journey comes to a close and the next part begins.

    Thanks for sharing your beauty with us, Lisa! Happy valentine’s day.

    love this post. I love the LOVE LOVE LOVE sign. You are so fantastic. I am hoping my boyfriend got me a Lisa Leonard Family Crest Necklace with a K for V Day… I have dropped many hints! If not for V-day, hopefully sometime soon!
    Praying for your sweet David. I will keep you in my prayers for sure this week.
