Finally, I have gotten the pictures loaded onto my computer and had a minute to sit down and blog! We had to put Jessica's party off the first time because she was sick. Then the following Sunday...Kenny's Mom and Dad were sick, my Dad was out of town and Mom had some kind of eye infection, so she came but wouldn't get close to anyone!!! BUT-we had a good party with Jeff and Austin, Karen and Ervin AND Samantha and Laurie from Montgomery!!! Also this was our first family party with kids, Stephanie and her family moved down during the summer so they were able to come to the party, too. Once again, Karen did a great job on the cake! It's hard to believe that "my baby" is 9! What a blessing she has been to our family. Please keep her in your prayers as we are going through an issue with her neck--nothing serious and in fact we got a good report from the neuro-surgeon in Augusta but it is something that we will have to keep an eye on! We are very thankful for the happy and heathy life that she has been able to enjoy and pray that this will continue!
A meeting was held quite far from earth, It was time again for another birth. Said the angels to the Lord above- "This child needs much love, her accomplishments she may not show. And she'll require extra care from the folks she meets down there. She may not run or laugh or play. Her thoughts may seem quite far away. So many times she will be labeled "different", "helpless", and "disabled". So let's be careful where she's sent. We want her life to be content. Please Lord; find parents who will do a special job for you. They will not realize right away the leading role they are asked to play. But with this child sent from above comes stronger faith and richer love. And soon they'll know their privilege given in caring for their gift from heaven. Their precious charge so meek and mild is Heaven's Very Special Child."
