Friday's Child

Friday's child is loving and giving.

I know it's an old nursery rhyme, but my prayer is that Skittles' and Kisses' baby girl will be loving and giving.  Kisses was amazing and I am truly thankful I was able to experience birth from the delivery room for the first time.  Thankful for the doctors and nurses who were there, as well. The rest of the grandkids were C-sections and we had to wait with much anticipation in the waiting room to see the first glimpse on a cell phone or peeking through a nursery window.  

But this day was truly special. 

Mother and baby are doing fine.  

Very thankful to get to capture the very first moments of her life.


God is so good to our family and so is worthy to be praised!  Praise the Lord for answered prayers!



We prayed for you and loved you from the moment your parents told us about you.  
But today, we met you and now it's official.  We love you past heaven!

. . . almost over.

Anyone who follows this blog . . . any one of the 7 readers of these posts, just sayin'. . . . should know that February is rough on our family.  Many of you may not have the same experience with this month, but our family struggles to make it through February every year.  Valentine's Day is no consolation, since it is a made-up holiday to sell leftover Christmas candy.

This year was no different as our precious Lollipop lost her best friend, at only 39 years of age . . .  and in February, of course.  So this post is for Trish!


Lollipop on the left and Trish in the middle.  I only knew of her until Leah's wedding, when I got to hang out with her several different times.  She was THE most fun person, just gone way too soon.  Trish had issues with her liver and ultimately that took her life.  But it is her life that should be celebrated, and not her death.  She was an amazing daughter, mother, grandmother, aunt, niece and friend!  Trish you are missed!
