The Difference A Year Can Make

Mother's Day 2010 was spent by the Ruckart family in an all-too-familiar room on the 5th floor of the Centennial Women's Hospital. While we were thrilled that Baby Wiles was hanging on for dear life inside his mommy, several weeks of intermittent fear and tension over his little life had us all a little overwhelmed and on-edge. As we gathered, or more-so bundled, together in that sub-arctic, sterile room, a vision of the below was our hope and our prayer. For this reason, yesterday, Mother's Day 2011, was a true answer to prayer. Not only did we have a new Mommy to celebrate, but the little, healthy, chunkster himself! What a difference a year.. and prayer.. can make.

My favorite part was when the congregation heard that Timbo was born at 3lbs. They took one look at those cheeks and laughed! I told him to enjoy it now... no one will ever find your weight gain quite so funny from here on out.

How precious is that? The sermon was on parenting, so he didnt feel the need to stay tuned.

Blessed family

For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him ...
