It's the "in-between" that will get you.

When I started this blog, I thought ok, I'll keep friends and quilting fans up-to-date on whats going on the in the Rusty Crow World.......and everything in-between.  I didn't think the in-between would land on us like a falling star. 

2012.   The new year was to bring greatest change and joy to all of us.  My little quilt business is growing, my patterns are starting to be noticed, I have a couple of articles coming out this next year.  Mike is feeling better, the surgeries are just scars now, not the constant pain that had been his silent partner for so long. Our children, are doing well.  Brooke is building her clientele as a stylist, Jared is graduating from Pepperdine in April and anxious to find a job in the computing world.  But most exciting of all was that our oldest daughter, Brit was having a baby in January.

God must really keep himself amused when he reads our thoughts, our plans and all those things that we deem so important.  So when life rolls along and then over us, we get up sputtering, wondering what the hell just happened.

With all the glory and hope that a new life brings to us, the world and the smile that must be on God's face at the sight of that new baby, we are in such pain.  My heart is breaking away is little pieces and I don't think I can pick them up fast enough.  Brit is in the hospital with postpartum.  It came on slow, picking up steam each day until she couldn't take it anymore.

As parents, we are standing by hoping that the professionals will find the right medicines and therapy to help our daughter.  It is so early in this journey that I don't even know if we are on the right road.  I spent yesterday with that precious little girl, giving her all the kisses and hugs that her mom will give her one day soon I hope.

So here I am, in the in-between part of life that hurts.  We will know joy again, I have to believe.  The in-between part can't last forever.
