Slow down

The other day Burke and I were driving home listening to Jars of Clay old cd. I can't even remember were we had been. I looked up at the sky. It was so cool looking. I just smiled. So often we get so wrapped up in our fast pace lives that we miss beautiful gift from God. I have for sure been in that fast pace life lately and seeing the sky Is what I needed. Slow down Sarah. We need to enjoy every moment of everyday. I went home and snuggled up with Burke and Taylor. The next morning when I woke up I got my usual hot cup of coffee and headed to my deck that has been neglected for some time now. I sat and enjoyed that quiet morning. It was so nice.

We have received overwhelmingly positive response from the families and I hope to share a few of their stories. Firefly has been so awesome at working hard to get all the plates done in a timely manner. Since the holidays have begun, I have been going in and painting the plate rims for them to help speed up the process. It breaks my heart every time I have to paint another plate but it also makes me smile to know that these families have brought their plate in and they will have this precious gift for ever to remember their sweet little angels. Below are some pictures I took with my phone of some of the raw and finished plates.
This photo below is the back of the plate. Once the plate is painted they paint the donor's name on the back for the families. This is so important to me because I want all these families to know there are people out there that th…
