  • the journey begins....

    I've just returned home from my visit with the new little family, :-)
    and now everything changes....

    Arianna Lynn was born with a full head of black hair just like her momma was...
    amazing to gaze upon.
    So very healthy looking, and loving to suck on her hand.
    6 lbs. + (this grandma was too distracted, too tired to get the exact detail :-) )
    18 inches

    born on the 26th, just like her mother was born on the 26th... (baby - March, Mom - October)

    Mom did very well, and so did dad in being there for his wife and baby.
    All are doing well, and hopefully sleeping well tonight.
    I think I will be doing the same...
    but with no baby to interrupt mine. ;-)

    Thanks for all the prayers, well wishes, and interest.

    Edit: Just visited my Facebook and see that my daughter must have not waited long after
    we left to post this:

    "Ariana entered the world today at 5:06pm. 6lb 10oz & 18"long. We're all doing great!
    Jonathon and I are proud parents! Shout out to my doula Leesha who helped me have
    the birth I'd hoped for....got to the hospital at 9cm and delivered her within the next 90min!"

  • Daughter is on her way to the hospital... grandbaby will be here soon.
    Please keep lifting her in prayer.

  • I completed my Lenten commitment and finished reading the Psalms.
    I feel accomplished. :-)
    Now to decide what next... maybe Acts of the Apostle's.

    Today's devotion and reading;
    Do all things without complaining....
    in everything give thanks....
    (Philippians 2:4, Thessalonians 5:18)

    I'm good about the giving thanks part...
    the complaining... maybe not so much....
    I do wish for more blessing

  • Picky

    The older I get, the less picky I seem to get...
    I guess maybe I was picky when I was young, because I could be...
    because I had the energy for it?

    It's funny too, how easy it is to forget...
    that there are things that can make a person really angry...
    when you are still young and burdened with the many stresses of life...
    when you carry the responsibility for so many things...
    for imparting life's lessons....

  • As I get older, I see things, I never saw when I was young...
    I think about things, I never thought about, when I was young....
