A Year of Tender Mercies

Last year on the 30th of September Tyler was flipped off of a pivot and broke his back and pelvis. Over the past year I have been able been able to reflect on the the tender mercies of the lord and of miracles that happen in our lives. I look back and feel so amazed at the blessings in our life. I am so thankful for Tyler and the wonderful father and husband he is. I am so thankful that he is still here and able to help me to teach and care for our children.

I actually like that he didn't stick with just one girl. I don't want him to have a girlfriend until he comes home from his mission.
