    Pure Love Conquers Sorrow

    I was very fortunate to be invited to capture some memories for sweet missH on her first birthday.

    The love surrounding her was on this special day was palpable.

    JOY and HOPE for her life and her future completely outshone the sorrow of her loss.

    (Tragically, both of her parents were killed in an auto accident just months ago)

    LOVE, pure LOVE, transformed and conquered all other emotions as little missH and her precious life were celebrated.

    My wish and my prayer and my hope for you, missH, is that you will always know the love and comfort that you knew this day.

    You are loved.

    Be Blessed

    we are all in this together…nancyelizabeth photography

    On this day it is never more true to remember that indeed we are all “in this together”

    thank you to Sunny Fiona Design for this printable (link below) for reminding us, in such a beautiful way,

    this very important truth…

    may you be blessed

    Former Temecula attorney drops job to help her daughter fight cancer

    By Kerri S. Mabee, on September 5, 2011, at 7:07 am

     

    I am blessed to be documenting this special event for missSophie…

    Fundraiser info…

    If you want to purchase tickets to go to the event for four year old Sophie Lawler-Ehr…the event will take place at Longshadow Ranch Winery, this Friday, October 7th from 6pm to 10 pm - Children are welcome, they will have great entertainment for them too! Tickets: $20.00 - Adults, $10.00 - Kids - Catering by Wahoo’s restaurant!

     

    Just a few weeks ago, Colleen Lawler, a former public defender at the Southwest Justice Center and mother to four year-old Sophie Lawler-Ehr, received some news that would devastate any parent. Shortly after Sophie complained of a pain in her chest, it was discovered that a malignant tumor was lodged just above her lungs.

    “Apparently they cannot at this point determine what type of tumor Sophie has,” said deputy public defender Erin Kirkpatrick, a close friend of Lawler’s. “They think the tumor can be either Ewings’ Sarcoma or Small Cell Lymphoma… Both are equally bad and both are extremely aggressive.”

    Sophie’s family is preparing to wage war against the cancer, Kirkpatrick said, with plans in the works for a benefit concert and a  website dedicated to raising funds for the battle that looms ahead.

    “Colleen was  always told that she couldn’t get pregnant. So having Sophie was a miracle,” said Kirkpatrick. ” This has completely devastated Colleen.”

    Lawler, who lives in Oceanside,  has worked as a defense attorney in Temecula for nearly eight years. She recently quit her job to focus on helping Sophie in her fight.

    “Information is coming in quickly. The family is deciding on chemo, and waiting for a report that will determine how aggressive they will have to be with the treatment,” Kirkpatrick said.

    sew good…

    Golly, I wish I knew how to solve my computer problems without simply buyinga new one! I have had people over to try and fix it’s slooooowness and it’s wacky settings that seem to set themselves every other week, to no avail…my computer has a mind of it’s own. We (me and the computer) are trying to work it out but well, it isn’t looking so good for one of us!

    In the meantime we are sewing…making baby blankets and prayer quilts for our little friend missR who is still in Children’s Hospital and baffling the doctors. Prayers for her and her family are appreciated, she is just a few weeks old and is in proving to be a fighter.

    Yup, that’s the Monopoly game still going on in the background, and the wood for the stairs that I’m debating on leaning against the wall and their great-grandma’s suitcase filled with treasures peeking out. I think the backgrounds always tell more of a story than the subject!

    may you be blessed

    art class…

    misterN and missE loved art class so much I am trying to figure out how to incorporate with piano, Spanish, taekwondo, acting, basketball, swimming, baseball, gymnastics and oh yeah, school! We’ll see what magic I can come up with both kiddos LOVE art.

     may you be blessed

    hope…

     

     

                             Prayers  Knowledge Needed

     

    …I am hoping that in posting Chassity’s message, one of my readers might have some much needed insight to a very rare type of cancer. And I am a huge believer in the power of prayer, so I am hopeful that we can all make a difference. Please take a moment to read Amanda’s story through Chassity’s voice:

    ……………………………………………………………………………………

    One of my oldest and dearest friends needs some prayers in a major way.  It’s the most heart wrenching story, one that I’ll spare you most of the details, of a young woman with cancer. 

    My story with Amanda begins when we were kids.  We grew up together in the same small town and were close friends all throughout school.  Many, many memories.  Countless really.  We both went to college at Indiana University and were roomies for 3 of those 4 years.  After college graduation Amanda married and started a family in Indiana.  Even though I moved to Charleston she and I have remained close in that sacred “we’ll be friends forever” sort of way that only really good friends can have.

    

    In April of 2011 Amanda, along with her husband Aaron and their two daughters Ava and Ella, welcomed baby Nolan to the world.  The pregnancy had been one that was extremely difficult and painful due to a fibroid and a lymph node the size of a cantaloupe and a grapefruit.  In May, about one month after Nolan’s birth, we learned that Amanda has cancer.  After numerous tests and surgeries and a recent trip to MD Anderson in Houston, the cancer has been determined to be UTROSCT.  UTROSCT is an extremely rare form of cancer which stands for Uterine Tumor Resembling Ovarian Sex Chord Tumor.  Googling will pull up very little.  Sadly, it has already spread to her sacrum, breast, rib and skull.  To make this whole situation even more cruel, Amanda is experiencing unbearable pain.  But you wouldn’t know, I’ve not once heard her complain about it.  She began carboplatin/taxol chemo treatment yesterday, but it is a very hard road ahead, one that is in God’s hands. Because this cancer is so incredibly rare, they’re pretty much throwing darts at a treatment.  If you happen to have any information on UTROSCT (maybe you or someone you know has it) please contact me.  Likewise, if you know or happen to be an OB oncologist, please get in touch with me.  Any information would be helpful at this point.  You can visit Amanda’s Caring Bridge page to learn more about her condition.

    

    I humbly ask that you please take time out of your day to say a prayer for my friend Amanda, her family, her doctors, and for her strength.  I assure you that this amazing woman and her beautiful family are worth every second of your time.  And if you feel the need to do more, please share this post.  You never know who might see it and how it could help.I am taking a respite from Friday Eye Candy for something much more serious and time sensitive.  As you know, Chassity from Look, Linger, Love has become a sweet friend of mine through the blog world. We met up not too long ago in Charleston where she shared with me about her dear friend, Amanda. Since then, more has come to light and I am hoping that in posting Chassity’s message, one of my readers might have some much needed insight to a very rare type of cancer. And I am a huge believer in the power of prayer, so I am hopeful that we can all make a difference.

    In April of 2011 Amanda, along with her husband Aaron and their two daughters Ava and Ella, welcomed baby Nolan to the world.  The pregnancy had been one that was extremely difficult and painful due to a fibroid and a lymph node the size of a cantaloupe and a grapefruit.  In May, about one month after Nolan’s birth, we learned that Amanda has cancer.  After numerous tests and surgeries and a recent trip to MD Anderson in Houston, the cancer has been determined to be UTROSCT.  UTROSCT is an extremely rare form of cancer which stands for Uterine Tumor Resembling Ovarian Sex Chord Tumor.  Googling will pull up very little.  Sadly, it has already spread to her sacrum, breast, rib and skull.  To make this whole situation even more cruel, Amanda is experiencing unbearable pain.  But you wouldn’t know, I’ve not once heard her complain about it.  She began carboplatin/taxol chemo treatment yesterday, but it is a very hard road ahead, one that is in God’s hands. Because this cancer is so incredibly rare, they’re pretty much throwing darts at a treatment.  If you happen to have any information on UTROSCT (maybe you or someone you know has it) please contact me.  Likewise, if you know or happen to be an OB oncologist, please get in touch with me.  Any information would be helpful at this point.  You can visit Amanda’s Caring Bridge page to learn more about her condition.

    

    I humbly ask that you please take time out of your day to say a prayer for my friend Amanda, her family, her doctors, and for her strength.  I assure you that this amazing woman and her beautiful family are worth every second of your time.  And if you feel the need to do more, please share this post.  You never know who might see it and how it could help. 

    Prayers & Knowledge Needed

    …. I am hoping that in posting Chassity’s message, one of my readers might have some much needed insight to a very rare type of cancer. And I am a huge believer in the power of prayer, so I am hopeful that we can all make a difference. Please take a moment to read Amanda’s story through Chassity’s voice:

    Prayers & Knowledge Needed

    I am taking a respite from Friday Eye Candy for something much more serious and time sensitive.  As you know, Chassity from Look, Linger, Love has become a sweet friend of mine through the blog world. We met up not too long ago in Charleston where she shared with me about her dear friend, Amanda. Since then, more has come to light and I am hoping that in posting Chassity’s message, one of my readers might have some much needed insight to a very rare type of cancer. And I am a huge believer in the power of prayer, so I am hopeful that we can all make a difference. Please take a moment to read Amanda’s story through Chassity’s voice:

    ShelterBox…Japan…

    Japan.. how heavy my heart is when I watch the video and hear the stories, but by the grace of God it wasn’t here in California and my family is safe and healthy. this is from the ShelterBox site and I encourage everyone to do something, anything, to help those families across the globe. Please pray for them and do whatever feels right to you, near or far, we are all connected.

     

    We’ve all seen the images and videos rolling in of the devastation from the Japan earthquake and tsunamis. While aftershocks and tsunami scares are still happening days later, the nation is in for a long long road of recovery. So far, the death toll is estimated to be 2,800. In just one town, 9,500 are missing. Not only do the survivors have to suffer the loss of loved ones, but as temperatures fall, electricity, water and food are now scarce to none. Many have tried to go back to their homes and to start picking up the pieces, only to find the tsunamis have plowed their homes down and there is literally nothing for them to come home to. Convenience stores have lines hours long and a limit of 10 items to each person. The second crisis has only begun and so many are left helpless.

    We are not ones to sit and do nothing. While as much as we’d like to hop on a plane and fly there to help with the search and rescue, the immediate need for help for those in Japan is the dire need for shelter. This fundraising page is specifically geared to help with that. Utterly Engaged and Ever Ours have handpicked ShelterBox as the organization to donate to.

    ShelterBox provide emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for families around the world who are affected by disasters at the time when they need it the most. Each large green ShelterBox is tailored to a disaster but typically contains a disaster relief tent for an extended family, blankets, water storage and purification equipment, cooking utensils, a stove, a basic tool kit, a children’s activity pack and other vital items. A whole box costs $1,000 (US), so we’re hoping to raise enough to send 5 boxes.

    Please join us. We know it won’t save the nation, but we strongly believe every little helps. Whatever you can contribute, we truly appreciate.

    may you be blessed

    Christmas is…

    My students and I made an amazing book to benefit the Nicholas Foundation and raise awareness for autism…it is titled Christmas is…

    They did an amazing job in a very short amount of time ~ an extremely creative group of young people, middle schoolers in their FIRST photography class.

    I am so proud of them and their efforts. The assignment was to pick ONE word that meant Christmas to them…and try to capture it. These is just a random sampling in the five minutes I have to share! Books are limited so order your now!

    here is your sneak peek of

    Christmas is…

    Be Blessed 

    shoes of freedom…

     

    To all the men and women who wear these shoes so that I may walk freely in mine…

    THANK YOU and May God Bless You and Yours.

    Be Blessed

    remembering…

    Remembering those that died and those that continue to die…

     

    only watch this   http://www.guzer.com/animations/miss_daddy.php  if you feel like a good old-fashioned cry… I believe this little girl is now 12 years old. So sad to grow up without her daddy.

     

    Be Blessed
