15 years ago today…

…the Good Lord allowed a set of identical twin boys with Down Syndrome into our lives! ❤ ❤ ❤

It’s been an EYE opening experience to say the least!

Until you have experienced it yourself you just won’t understand the noises-the constant twirling of a toy tied together with yarn used as a “friend”-the imaginary friends-the talking through a device-the need to eat certain things all the time-the watching of Sesame Street at the age of 15-the PURE innocence…

This a.m. we had a scare~ Landon became ill with the dry heaves and passed out. Landon weighs 45 more lbs than me-so for me to catch him falling would have been  fruitless- I am thankful to the Good Lord that Landon slid down the door and I could gently lay  him down. I thought,”LORD, it’s his birthday he can’t die today please!” We weren’t sure if he had a seizure. With prayer and a trip to the DR. ALL IS GOOD \o/ When we were done he said with that sweet voice and with the sweetest lil face  “Mom. I am sorry that I scared you.” He was so sorry for me and not even himself! He made me cry  ❤

I think back to when I was first pregnant and because of my age they offered me that test for down syndrome. Of course I opted out saying “we will cross that bridge when we get to it”…LITTLE DID I EVEN SUSPECT the journey the GOOD LORD was about to take us on! LOL!

WE ARE SO BLESSED~I CAN NOT IMAGINE LIFE WITH OUT THEM ❤ ❤ ❤

God is good ALL of the time!!!

  1. Bless their hearts.
    Landon’s words would have made anyone cry.

    But they have a good mother in you Elizabeth. Because your love for them is radiant in your words.

    God bless all of y’all. And happy birthday to Landon and William. 🎉

    1. Thank you so much, Lee! I just can not explain the love the Lord has shown through them! I am not “worshiping” them 😉 Just grateful because the “situation” has actually led me to seek the Lord more ❤
      HE IS GOOD LIKE THAT, TOO!!!
