Leaves on a Pond...

We went to my Mama's house for a visit yesterday, and I went for a walk.

Leaves gather on a pond.

I love to walk in this neighborhood, because it doesn't seem like a neighborhood.

They had such a good time!
We are finally feeling better, and it was so great to get out of the house!

Tea and a Pity Party

"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't. And contrarywise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?"
~Alice in Wonderland~

I am drinking tea & honey to soothe a sore throat and keep the coughing at bay. And feeling a little sorry for myself, although I shouldn't. And looking around on Etsy. I like this print from couragemylove.etsy.com.

Remembering When:

I was looking through Savannah & Isaac's baby album and thinking about how tiny they were! The top picture is right after they were born. Isaac is on the left, Savannah on the right. The bottom picture is after we brought them home. Savannah on the left, Isaac on the right.
Savannah was 6 lbs, 2 oz, and Isaac was 6 lbs, 11 oz.

For me, and for Joe, looking at each other and hearing our babies cry for the first time was the most amazing and miraculous experience we have had. There is nothing else like it in the world!

Psalm 139: 7-14
"Where can I go from Your spirit? Or where can I flee from your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, you are there.
If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there Your hand shall lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me.
If I say, "Surely the darkness shall fall on me," even the night shall be light about me;
Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, but the light shines as the day;
The darkness and the light are both alike to You.
For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb,
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made."
