Words to Live and Write by

I am willing to fall Because I have learned how to rise.

I craft Love from heartbreak, Compassion from shame, Grace from disappointment, Courage from failure.

I am among the brave and brokenhearted, and I am rising strong.

Two birds with one stone

For any of you who have been following our blog, I am sorry. it has been a while since we have last posted anything. On the bright side, Hannah has found some employment and is working as a receptionist for an architecture firm near downtown San Antonio. I guess because of that there hasn't been a more recent blog posting until now! My only excuse is I have been a slacker.

In addition to being domestic by doing laundry, taking care of the dog, making the bed, keeping our room presentable, and other household chores, I have decided that I am now going to pick up the slack and start

to post blogs more regularly, at least a little.

Here are some pictures my brother sent. In the picture above is me, Mo, and then Angie(who wasn't having a very good day). In the picture to the right, right to left and

top to bottom, is my brother Mo, my mom Bonnie, me, and then my twin sister Angeline. In the next picture is Angie, Mo, and then Me.

I was very happy to get those pictures and I think I started to understand something about Hannah. She loves to look back at our wedding and engagement pictures and used to always ask me to look at them with her. Its not like I disliked them or anything, but I never wanted to look at them with her. I would tell her no, what do I need to look at those for? I was there. I remember what was going on. I guess I didn't see them as I saw the pictures my brother sent me, that caused me to reminisce over the memories of those events, or related events.

So, in addition to picking up the slack, this blog is also showing pictures to make my wife happier. I hope you enjoy them as well.
