Should Probably Introduce Myself

Hi!! Welcome to my blog. I'm Denise, wifey of 7 years to Daniel and mommy to Melody and Aizen, and my precious Ruby (April 2005-February 2007) who passed away and is waiting for me in Heaven this past February.

Life has been really rough for our family the past 6 months and we really miss our daughter Ruby and wish she were still with us. Always remember that life is short and to cherish your children every moment for you never know when they will be called home.

I've been a Christian for 13 years now and we attend Unionville Alliance Church. The Lord has seen me through some hard times in my life and has always brought me through difficult times. These troubling times have made me a stronger person.

My blog title is from a very special memorial quilt for Ruby that was made by my wonderful friends from CHF. One of the squares on my quilt was the "Sunshine Through The Rain" and it became the theme for it and now my life. The death of my child has been the hardest thing I have ever been through and through the tears/rain there is sunshine as I remember her and do things in her memory.

We're a crunchy family. We love cute cloth diapers, there is just something about a baby in a little fluffy butt that is just too darn cute. I think I am quite addicted to buying cloth diapers, as any other cloth diaperer knows, there are just way too many cute diapers out there. LOL

I'm a craftoholic and love doing lots of things. I crochet, scrapbook, cross stitch, am dabbling in quilting, rubber stamping and lots of other little things. It has been very therapeutic in my recovery. I also love baking and making super yummy treats for my family. I'll be sure to share recipes as we find new favourites.

Well anywho, I must be off to go and wash bottles.

Blessings to you.
