It has been 101 weeks. 707 days.......sounds like a long time. Some days it feels like yesterday I was holding Kendall and talking to Megan, I still miss them so very much. Yet look at how much has happened in those 707 days. We have welcomed two new little girls into our immediate family. Madison Renay and Megan Lea. (Megan would have been so very excited to have two little nieces! ) We have celebrated birthdays and holidays, planted trees, got a new roof and helped Christopher and Shannon move into a new home. I have changed jobs and we have new vehicles.

Wade's cousin had her baby a few days ago. She is a beautiful little girl. Her grandma is so very excited! About time she got to be grandma and she is also going to be one again this fall! How exciting! And another baby coming along in our lives, Megan's friend Tonia came by last night. She had her sonogram yesterday and it is a girl! She is so very excited. Babies are so wonderful, such a miracle gift from God.

Tomorrow is Mother's Day. What a wonderful day to be able to celebrate. We helped the boys make gifts for their moms! How much fun we had. I will post the photos later, just in case the mom's peek at this before tomorrow.
If you are a parent you will realize that you keep time in your head by your children. What I mean is that you will remember when something was because you know it happened when Christopher was seven or just after Trisha was born or we moved when Megan was two. My time has now been altered.

I Love you girls.

Happy Mother's Day to all you fine Midland ladies--I have thought of you so much lately -- especially as I look at Jen holding our precious little Cory, I can't help but be reminded that I need to soak up every minute of my daughter and her little girl, and I just want to watch them all the time. Larry finally made me come home today, he wanted his wife back, but he told me if I needed to I could stay longer -- but alas, we are more than just our daughters mothers, aren't we? I just can't get enough of that sweet little girl..I think of her every minute. Jason is BESIDE him self HAPPY! I can't wait to watch him with his own baby. I know your Mother's day was bittersweet, and I am glad that you have such beautiful blessings to help you heal. I love you!
