Once again it has been forever since I have had time or the motivation to get something on my blog. The past few weeks months have been full of some very difficult challenges. Wednesday of this last week I was faced with one of the most difficult personal experiences I have ever endured, but God is good and faithful and I believe that healing is on its way.
First thing Thursday morning Andy and I woke up to a sweet, unexpected blessing when another baby bird made its appearance in the aviary. Meet Sweet Little Baby Bird (named by Olivia of course)
These birds are zebra finches...the one with the bright orange cheeks is the daddy. Olivia named him Purdue...grandpa was happy about that.
The pretty little white finch is the mama, her name is Snowball.
Olivia was super excited to meet the new baby
She had to introduce "sweet little kitty" to "sweet little baby bird." Grandpa asked what we would call her when she wasn't a baby any more...she said I haven't decided yet!
She was telling me that looking at sweet little baby bird just made her want to cuddle her...so cute!
Grandpa Andy snapped a couple of good shots of two of my favorite blessings all dressed up in our homecoming gear. These girls never fail to make me smile.
Love this one of Olivia and I. I especially love the sweet, slightly stinkery smile.
And one of grammy and Ella...she's getting so big and her smiles are so sweet.
I'm sure there are some really hard days coming...but God has blessed me with the best husband, an amazing family, supportive friends, peace that transcends any circumstance and lots more smiles to come!
About me--hummmmmm... I have been married for 35 years to the most wonderful, godly man. It is truly my joy to be his wife. We have two awesome kids--both grown and married to pretty terrific spouses. I am the secretary at our church and handle the Women's ministry. The most exciting part of my life is being grandma to our beautiful, spunky grand kiddos Olivia Grace, Ella Faith, Jacob Thomas, and Harrison Andrew. It is so much fun to have little ones in our house from time to time--and a blessing to savor the quiet again when they go home! Being grammy continues to bring a special kind of joy to my life that I can't quite explain and wouldn't trade for anything in the world!
