A Wonderful Weekend: A Baby Shower

It was a weekend of wonderfuls...

A wonderfully special time with my girl.

I don't know that I've ever seen my baby girl
more happy or more beautiful.

Sure makes for one happy mama.



(The flowers were made of onsies, 
footies and bathclothes.) 

Ribbons and Lace


More Clothes

a few of a girl's favorite things.

The food was pretty and delicious. 

It was quite a spread.  

We ate...

we drank...

and, we were merry:)

My daughter-in-law had worked so hard 
and had to leave.
She got a call that her Papaw, 
who had suffered a stroke this week,
had taken a turn for the worse. 

Sometimes we laugh together, sometimes we cry.
This day we did both.
Please keep her family in your prayers. 

Many friends and family have walked this journey along beside us.

So many were there to cry with us, 
pray for us, 
and walk beside us. 

We prayed and waited with others
as others prayed and waited with us. 

No one will ever know the prayers prayed 
by the moms of this pretty girl.

I never gave up hope.  
Just once?
No, not ever.
A mama hangs on with strong, stubborn faith,
believing in what seems impossible.  

My sister was MY support.
She was ever interceding.
At times, I thought my heart would burst into pieces
but I'd call my sister.  I knew she'd take it to the feet of Jesus.

Read their story of infertility here.

God makes beauty from ashes.

A wife lost a husband,
two children lost their dad
and four grandchildren lost a Papa.
Troy lost an uncle,
 his mom lost a brother.

Questions, yes.
Somethings we will never understand.

A new baby brings joy in the midst of pain.

These girls made music together.
These days they dance to the tune 
of little ones.

This baby girl has stolen my heart.

This little man makes me laugh.

Can't wait to see what they think of our newest little angel.
