Sammy's Cabin, a giveaway FAIL, and stuff

*sammy's cabin in process! inaugural campers*

So much I want to tell ya'll about. Post-it notes cover my computer. ^ look! The cabin! My dad raised the money for it and in doing so was the impetus for 2 other cabins to be built as well. I get to write a plaque that will be posted on the wall and choose some pictures to be placed in the cabin as well. I shared a bit about Sammy with those boys. Guess what word they used to describe the cabin? Seriously - guess. If you guess the correct answer I will send you one of our Team Sammy t-shirts that are currently being designed...and that's my first blog giveaway :-) <----Giveaway FAIL, little dude said the cabin provided "peace". All the praying and crying I did for Sammy's birth/death was not in vain! It made my heart smile to know God answered that prayer for me and was continuing to answer it unbeknownst to me.

*a chunk of a 10 month old boy just sat down across from me in the coffee shop and won't stop staring*i can hardly concentrate*

I haven't mentioned Lulu's mama yet! Last Friday I got to meet one of my online friends in real life. It was so perfect and so God. We only had an hour but it was exactly what we both needed. Lulu was born on October 4th, her mama sent me the "love is" necklace, it was very special to get to spend some time with her.

I'm feeling so good about *life* that I've started a plan for how to get a grief support group thingy going in the fall. Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope has just the laid back approach that I want to take (ie: whatever works). It's gonna be real grassroots so I went on a mommy website and started a profile. It was the first time I got to list my child and his birthdate. *smile* I was proud, even if the note had to say "born still".

We get to register as "Team Sammy" for the 5k/3k. With a donation of $250 and at least 4 people we get to have a spot set aside for us, with a banner, and our team name announced as it starts. *smile* Did I mention our cute t-shirts? *smile* Official Team Sammy walkers at this time are his mama, Nana Shelly, Auntie Linda, and Isabel.

Don't forget to check the Parker Family 5k tab at the top of the page for more information. Also feel free to donate using the button under CHEEKS!

"Do you not know? Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth
does not become tired or weary
...those who wait upon the Lord
shall renew their strength..."
Isaiah 40:28, 31


  1. I'm really trying to think of what word they would use? Was it something that had to do with Sammy? Hmmmmmm

  2. Cheeks? Is that a funny name for a cabin?

  3. Green? Is that a "Sammy Green" roof I see?

    This is so awesome!
