2010 has started out a little slow in energy as far as the foundation goes, but I believe that God has called us to "be still" and "refocus" a bit as we venture into the future.
Tim and I have entered a new chapter in our grief.
Reality sinks in a little more each day and honestly, we have found ourselves drawing nearer and nearer to God and having more moments of simply being quiet.
Last year, I worked on Nick's foundation night and day. I think that for me it was a way of coping with the loss of Nick and all that went with him............24/7 care giving, so many different medicines, never sleeping very deeply, etc. This year I am tired. I find myself falling asleep earlier and sleeping more soundly. I am thankful for that part of life right now, but the pain of losing Nick has intensified as winter has begun changing into spring so I stay in the Word and God's promises for my daily strength.
I am writing today to let you know that even though not many things have been shared about the foundation lately, we do continue to mail out memory boxes when families lost children and deliver baskets when kids are sick. We are still trying to raise the needed funds for the orphanage in India so that they can build their new facility. I speak at ladies' events any time I am asked, because I feel that God has placed in my heart the desire to encourage women in their walk with the Lord.
I just wanted you all to know that we are still here. Reaching out with the love of God to hurting families.
Nick's legacy continues.
I will write more soon.
Tammy and Tim
