A little Fall and a little Love

October 10, 2013

As we have the past two fall’s here, we head to our farmer’s market in New Mexico a few Saturday’s a month. This year it’s switching to stay open through the winter, which I am so excited about. Bella loves to look at all the different fruits, vegetables, and sample the breads and granola. I love to oogle over the all organic clothes that we won’t ever drop that much cash on and plants that are alive because they aren’t in my home (I have a black thumb). Sam likes to pick up ingredients for soups and chili.

I snapped some photos of our time there. Isn’t Bella getting so big? Man. Sometimes I can’t believe how old she is. 4 next month!

~At the end I have something I want to say to you all, but scroll through these first to get an idea of how part of our weekends look and what El Paso is like in the fall. (not to bad, eh?)~

I also wanted to tell you all thank you – thank you for the comments, the emails, the tweets, the support of my writing in all the places I am, the meals that we’ve been sent, the money and gift cards, the boxes of presents for each of us, the cards, the phone calls, prayers, and time spent – we have truly been blessed in so many unexpected ways.

I always wondered if we lost another baby if anyone would care the second time around, or if it would just be like, “Well, they’ve done this before. They’ll be fine.” But you guys have shown me (and many, many others) what a community of loving people from all over the country can draw together to do. Sometimes Sam and I will ask ourselves just how we would have gotten through these first 6 weeks (hard as it still is) without so many of you easing our other burdens.

And please know, I read every comment, email, tweet, DM. They often are sent to me in moments that there was truly God’s hand on it – times when I’ve seen a tweet saying, “I woke up last night at 2am and prayed for you,” and I had woken up at the same time in a different time zone aching for my sons but feeling such a presence of comfort. Amazing.

I can’t say I’ve responded to them all because so many of you just poured out your love to us – but I am still trying to respond and each one has really touched my heart.

Thank you.

    You and your family are in my thoughts. I so appreciate your beautiful honesty and writing. Our son Connor was stillborn on August 24 at 22 weeks. My heart is so broken, I can not imagine how you must feel after losing 3 sons. My 2 year old daughter makes me smile everyday, thank goodness for her 🙂

    Been following your story and sending many prayers and much love to you and your family.

    I read this article today and thought of you and your journey: http://natepyle.com/confronting-the-lie-god-wont-give-you-more-than-you-can-handle/

    Thank you, Diana, for being more courageous than most. And I’m SO looking forward to seeing God restore and rebuild for you, whether it’s now, later, or much later.

    You are so amazing! I'm glad I got to meet you at the Influence Conference even though I was a bit hyper and frantic (but that's me ) and I am so glad you came!!! Thank you for sharing yourself so honestly to us all. I will continue to pray and I know God will bless your sweet family!

    Continued prayers and love. Enjoyed the photos – those veggies look amazing! Good reminder too to get to ours. Not as close by since our move last year and I tend to forget, but goodness do the fruits & veggies taste so much better. Plus, my son loves meeting the farmers. 🙂
