Unexpected Blessing

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 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!

Sorry to hear that you are having a hard time ... of course being a woman...I can't help myself ... wondering what is going on. Then I pinch myself and say...just say a prayer (o:
My best friend is the women's minister at our church. Sometimes hard things come along with the blessings.
