I Remember

I tried all day yesterday to download this image and failed. Or rather I could download but not size correctly.   It sure troubled me !!  Finally the "Birthday Girl" my youngest daughter found the time to do it for me.
So my special daughter Happy Birthday entry a day late!

A young man who lives down the road in his deceased grandparents home
sometimes comes to the rescue when I have a problem.
While on the tractor yesterday a small limb became lodged in the blade.
I called him and he came and was able to pull it out.
On my calendar is marked "twin baby girls due first week of September."
I quickly inquired how was everything going
he shared the babies arrived 6 weeks early and now were home.
I went to see them later in the day.
Oh, how precious were the two little ones laying side by side in the bed.
Both a little under 5 lbs with little heads covered with dark hair.
Morgan and Abagail welcome to the world....

This brought back memories of my fourth baby - Jamie.
She was born 3 weeks early and when I brought her home she weighted 
not quite 5 lbs.
I remember that your sisters and brother played with you constantly.
My first babies I was so careful with and you experienced more freedom
You were put in doll buggies, wagons and when a toddler your brother put a helmet on you
and would take you on go cart cruises with him.  Mary would change your outfits many times daily and tape little ribbons in your hair :)  They loved playing with you and I did not seem to mind.
To think you survived :)
You were and are very loved.

Again, Happy Birthday on August 10th.
You, Alan and those two little girls bring me continual love and joy....

Tabor, thank you. Yesterday was so filled with computer stress that I had thoughts of further simplifying and throwing it in the woods :)

Computers are so nice....but just when they work :)
I was looking at that picture and saw the same chair that I had when my son was born.
Happy momories for you today...Balisha
