Today is Son #5's 15th Birthday!!!!  He is another miracle baby for our family.  I had a  bleeding placenta with him and we were not sure if he would make it.  But God gave us a miracle and we praise Him for our son! 

Happy Birthday Son #5!
We love you!!!!

Things to Share

Ahhh!  I actually have a few minutes, stolen ones, to 'catch up' on sharing a couple of projects.

Son and Daughter-in-law had there precious little bundle on October 14.  She is amazing!  Love all the newbie of a newborn, but I do not miss the endless sleepless nights.  Maybe it is because I have been out of that for several years.  An occasional sleepless night I can handle.  So I can hardly wait to start having sleep overs!!!!

Okay, here are some pictures that I have taken of the antique rocker that belonged to my great-grandmother.  We refinished it for another generation to be nursed and rocked!

The Chair (I forgot to get a picture in the staining process)
The Fabric
The Seat (base and cushion)
The Tool (yes, an electric carving knife!)
 The Finished Project

We were very happy with the finished project!  Here is to many babies and memories!!!!!

Now for Daughter is a picture of her baby shower invitation.

Time Flies...

Well, I guess it has been a 'few' days since I have posted.  My days have filled with being wife, mommy, teacher, taxi driver, problem solver, seamstress, activities director, etc.  There are not enough hours in the day to get done what needs to be done.  I find myself often saying I need 48 hours to get done what I need to do in 24 hours!  Hmm...then it hit me today, I am not content!!!  

In Philippians 4:11, Paul talks about being content.  The second part of the verse reads. "...for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content."  I guess I have not learned to be content!  I want to be content, sometimes I think I am, but it is hard!

My days are spent serving others...yes, I know, as a child of God, follower of Christ that is what I am to do.  J.O.Y.  J=Jesus--He is first, O=Others--family, friends, Y=You (well, me).
No surprise in serving when being a wife and mommy.  But, there is very little time left for what I want to know, create so…
