5 Years

I realized today that I completely forgot about a very special anniversary.  February 1 marks 5 years tumor free!

Things have changed so much in the last five years, but I am so thankful for a few things that haven’t: no spinal tumor, God’s love & faithfulness, and Andrew.

Praising God for 5 years!!!


Wishing on Willows

Wishing on Willows is a new book by Katie Ganshert that releases next month.  I don’t usually pick books up that I know will be tear jerkers, but I have no regrets about grabbing this one.  It tells the story of Robin Price, a young woman who loses her husband just as she discovers that she is pregnant and the life that she builds after his untimely death.  When her son is almost four, a development deal in her small town threatens the coffee shop/cafe that is the dream of Robin and her late husband.  Problem is, the developer is a good guy, who also just happens to be gorgeous, but with a sad past of his own.  As they each struggle through their painful past and fight their attraction to each other, a beautiful story about love lost, God’s grace, and moving on in spite of pain is told.

I definitely shed some tears as I read this story, so be prepared with a box of tissues if you pick up a copy for yourself, and I suggest you do.  You can get a sneak peak of the book here.
