Need I say more? Probably. But in my mind, that one word says it all. Even after two years the word February invokes strong emotions in the private world of my own heart.

I have been mostly absent from the world of blogging lately, as I soak up the OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAsnuggles, giggles, and delights of my baby boy. I have so many half written posts, and never quite finished updates about our beautiful miracle, Elijah. And finish I will because these last five months have been absolutely wonderful with my son. So many victories, so many stories, so many pictures, so many joys to share of his precious new life!

And yet, somehow, February has snuck up on me.  The month that represents such bitter sweet emotions. The month that I feel the missing little girl in our family the most. And so, for the next couple weeks, I will be focusing on our little Esther. The life she gave us, the pain of her death, and the grief we still live with.

I also choose joy.
