She has changed my life.
When I saw Andrea fighting cancer with everything inside of her...she changed me.
When I saw Andrea's big smile and heard about her upbeat attitude...she changed me.
When I hear about things she did and said to her son and husband...she changes me.
When I realize that her strength and courage lives on in her family and friends...she changes me.
When people drop everything to participate in Relay for Life because it was such a huge deal for her...she changes me.
When I see this photograph and tears stream down my face for the woman she was...she changes me.
When I see Ethan playing basketball with his little sweatband on and I try to imagine how much he misses his Mommy...she changes me.
She changes me as a woman, as a daughter, as a mother, as a friend,as a believer. I don't know about you, but tonight I am going home and hugging Max to me with all of my might. I am going to kiss him and tell him that I love him so. I am going to savor every single second I have with him...and everyone else that is important to me. Because none of us ever know how long we have here on Earth - and I will be content even if I only leave a fraction of the impact that Andrea did on this world.
If you do nothing else tonight - please do this: stop and say a prayer for sweet Ethan. And always remember to take NOTHING for granted. Not one, single breathe.

Yesterday Max and I went to the dentist - it was Max's first visit. I was really nervous about how he would act, but he was just perfect and it opened my eyes to just how big he is getting. Growing up...it's happening before my eyes and I can't stop it, even though I think I would if I could. But the young man he is growing up to be makes me a proud mama. Not sure how it's happening...but pretty sure it has not much to do with me and alot to do with my Savior:) We both left the dentist with smiles on our faces, new toothbrushes, and no cavities:)!!Here is a picture of my sweet boy at the dentist, it's from my phone so it is not great...Also, wanted to share some things Max has said lately:
Ok - time for another vote! This time I need your help with deciding on a wedding cake. Obviously, it will be a small cake because the wedding is only family - but it comes in the wedding package so I thought I would pick a cute, little cake. Which do you like better?
Honest opinions - let me have it:) Thanks guys - you are all making this so much more fun than it already is:)!!
