Promise and Possiblity

In 2007, my daughter's husband was diagnosed with cancer.

The cancer was contained and removed, 
but another rather invasive surgery was necessary 
to prevent the spread of cancer to his lymphatic system.

During this time, my son and his wife were getting married.
What was the most joyous time for my son 
was one of the most difficult for my daughter. 

While celebrating with one child, 
I was grieving with another. 
To say I was conflicted is an understatement.

I don't have time to take you through every emotion, 
because there were too many to count, 
New birth...failed IUI

For every moment of joy
there was a moment of pain.

Nevertheless, we celebrated and grieved,
that is life.

We celebrated NEW Life.

Our Connor Man in 2010

 Our Cora bug in 2014

Another promise-fulfilled,
Harper in 2014.

We grieved our losses.

 And believed that one day,
Roses Will Bloom Again.

We look forward to a new year of PROMISE
and Possibility.

 Happy New Year
from my heart to yours,


I am a promise, 
I am a possibility.
I am a promise, 
With a Capital "P"
I can be anything, 
Anything God wants me to be.

Yes, I believe in Promise and Possibility.


  1. :) Such an amazing answer to prayer!

  2. Happy New year to you and your family. Cancer is such a deadly disease. I do understand because I have fought it three times now. Blessings to you and your dear family.

  3. What a beautiful way to explain your life emotions-joy and pain. Our daughter had a miscarriage, followed by a pregnancy induced cancer. She had to wait a whole year (with cancer treatments) before she could even think about having a baby. The long wait ended with a beautiful little boy. Now she is expecting a little girl any day now. Life sometimes hurts, but joy always heals. Your grandchildren look precious!

  4. Beautiful.
    And so true.
    Love and hugs my friend...

  5. Beautiful! Happy New Year to you as well. Blessings

  6. Life has so many ups and downs with promises that there will always be good days ahead. Happy New Year, sweet friend. xo Laura

  7. Heartache and blessing,...that's what life is. Beautiful babies!

  8. Precious babies! God is with us every step, isn't he? We must believe even when we don't feel it....because it's the Truth!
    Thanks for sharing these precious pictures.

  9. So many emotions and a beautiful way of expressing them. Blessings to you and your family in the new year ahead.

  10. I hope that next year will bring you more ups than downs. I guess that's all we can ever hope for. The important thing throughout it all is the support you get from family and the hope you have in prayer. Hope you had a great Christmas this year.

  11. I hope that 2015 will be a wonderful year for all of your family. xx

  12. Me too:) Sending HUGS and PRAYERS your way dear friend!

  13. A beautifully written post, Bonnie. God is with us every step of the way. These are precious pictures. Harper is so beautiful and is growing! Praise the Lord for answered prayers.
    Happy New Year with love,
