a baby is heaven's sweetest blessing, a gift, a miracle, and a keepsake of God's love

... so fresh from God ...

It is not a slight thing when they who are so fresh from God, love us. - Charles Dickens 1812 - 1870

Wonderful are Thy Works!

For thou didst form my inward parts, thou didst knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise thee, for thou art fearful and wonderful. Wonderful are thy works!
Thou knowest me right well; my frame was not hidden from thee, when I was being made in secret, intricately wrought in the depths of the earth. Thou eyes beheld my unformed substance; in thy book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.
How precious to me are thy thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I would count them, they are more than the sand. When I awake, I am still with thee.
Psalm 139: 13-18 Holy Bible

Happy Birthday to my Mom!

Happy Birthday Mom!! You are the best Mom and best Grandma there could ever be. I miss you so much!! Wish we lived closer to each other. My Mom makes the very best homemade coffee cake. I will always remember the scent of the cinnamon throughout the entire house from her coffee cake baking. I use this recipe now so my kids can have this same memory about me as I do about my lovely lovely Mom. I love you Mom!!!

Happy 16th Birthday Bobby!

Happy 16th Birthday to my oldest son Bobby! I remember when I first saw your sweet little face and held you in my arms on the day you were born. Tears are in my eyes as I remember all of our wonderful days together - watching you grow up into such a fine character, handsome, smart, creative, and funny young man - who is my favorite to have long chats with. I am so proud of you! Love you always XOXO Mom

Happy World Breastfeeding Week

Happy World Breastfeeding Week. It has been the sweetest blessing for me as a mother to breastfeed all 4 of my babies. This picture is of my little Luke nursing while in the NICU! He kept making baby signs that he wanted to nurse. He would look right at me and put his little fist over his mouth over and over. My baby wanted to nurse with his Mommy. I keep this breastfeeding memory in my heart forever.
