Fashion Show

 I can't believe that this is the 3rd fashion show for us. I don't know if time actually went this fast, or if it just seems fast because I mentally blocked out all the painful stuff of that happened in the first year. The Fashion Show is a bitter sweet event for me. One the one hand, I think it's nice to stop and reflect on how blessed our lives are, and how far our kids have come. It's also great to raise money for a cause that is so dear to Greta and I. It's especially nice to reconnect with the St. Joseph staff who saved our kids lives. Plus, we have made a lot of very good friends through this event who all have similar stories and share a common connection. On the other hand, it's getting harder and harder for me to revisit the NICU. I am pretty sure that I have mentally buried my memories from the NICU, but this event each year is a reminder to me of how fragile life is and that our family is truly a miracle and a gift from God.
