I came across a poem today that spoke volumes! Their are days in our journey with Landon that I get overwhelmed but then I come across someone or something that reminds me to step back and just breathe. 

"I know you can't hear me ... but I do talk to you.
And I hear everything you say to me, too.
I hear when you laugh when I do something funny.
I hear you yell, "Hooray" when I try so hard.
I hear you tell others how you'd never
trade me for the world
even with all the trials I came with.
I hear you thank God for what a blessing
you have been given.
I hear you encourage me when I can almost do it.
I hear you cry, too, when it gets a little harder
and when you ask God, "Why?!" your baby
and I know you know I understand somehow.
And you know I listen when you talk to me too

But, I want you to know, Mom ... I do talk to you."

I love you Landon!

That is a great poem. Thinking of you and your family and praying for you. I hope we can get together sometime - maybe after we have our babies. I miss seeing you.
