the mertes family

My heart simply cannot put words around the love I have for the people in these pictures.

Liesel, Luke and your precious Mertes children, we Paulsons LOVE you.  As in literally – we have not stopped talking about all of you.  You have our hearts.  Times infinity.  I just ache that I waited so long to email you, Liesel.  Thank you for the grace and love you’ve showered on us.  For sharing your pain.  Your hearts.  And your joy.  Honestly – you have already been a part of restoring my heart just by sharing yours.  Our time with you will forever be lodged in my memory as a day my heart grew bigger just from spending time with all of you.  I hope you love looking through all the love present in your family.  I’m overwhelmed by it…

And please, oh please, take the time to fall in love with them and their honesty and their pain-filled wisdom and honest journey on Liesel’s blog.  I plan on writing more later, but the oven timer is dinging, dinner must be served and I simply cannot wait another moment before I share the love found in these images.
