Three Months

Jackson is three months old today.  He is enjoying his first trip to the ocean here in Topsail Beach, so I will post a three-month penguin picture and update when we get back home.

Today, though, it occurred to me how nice it is to celebrate the 24th of each month, instead of simply mourning the 13th of each month.  Another gift from my sweet boy. 


  1. YES. A layer of joy on top of the sadness is One Good Thing...


  2. Been thinking about you a lot this week. Hope you are having a good time with your precious family and Jess and her family. I wish Hudson was there with you, but I know her spirit is everywhere and in everything you do.

  3. I heart Jackson and all the joy he brings.

  4. Mandy, You are One amazingly Good Thing. I so appreciate how you honor and acknowledge the joy and the pain, allowing them each space to exist. And, how you share that with others, so that we can be reminded to celebrate beauty and joy, even in the darkness of uncertainty, loss, and sadness.
    I am so grateful that you can celebrate on the 24th of each month too!

  5. Bless your sweet family. I think of you all often, and pray for you.

  6. Wonderful! I think of you so often and am glad to hear that you are having fun at the beach. Does Jackson have a separate blog? I love seeing news of him here and wonder if you have another blog that is just for him? I'd love to see it, if so. Have a nice rest of your vacation! Peace to you all.
