I’ve entered a new season of my life, so it’s time to give my blog a new look to signify this important time. For the last 3-4 years I have been itching to move back to Austin. After we lost Jonathan, I wanted to move even more so. But God was on a different timeline than I was. He needed to heal my heart, and help me move on in life without my son. And in the last 2 years, most of the pain that I never thought would go away has subsided. Don’t get me wrong – I still miss my son. But now my story is about both of my sons: Jonathan Timothy, my little angel in heaven and Michael David, my beloved boy that follows me like a shadow. I am a better person because of my children, and I hope they will continue to mold and shape me.
While I have lived in Austin, it is almost like starting life over again. Most places I go people don’t know me, or my story. I have been asked more times than ever before, if Michael is my only child. What a challenge. . . . what an opportunity. . . . to tell my story again and again. Some people also ask if we want more children. Not an easy question to answer without telling my whole story.
