The Last of the February Birthdays

Today is Son #1's birthday!  He came into the world 28 years ago today, at 4:36 am, weighing 9 pounds 3 ounces!  He was only 3 days over due and was my longest labor...eight hours!

Hubby and I had gone out to eat with his folks. (Hey Laurie, we were at the Red Coach Inn!)  I was not hungry and was making "railroad" tracks in my mash potatoes.  Not being hungry should have been a clue that something was not right! *smile*  After we were finished with our meal I started to get up and sat down very quickly!  As I stood my water broke!  The restaurant we were eating in was the busiest it had been in a long while!  And of course we were sitting very near the back!  Thank goodness I had my coat with me, but my shoes squeaked as a walked! They were leather and very, very wet!

Needless to say my love for the wee one out weighed the humiliation I felt.  But I left a very big mess for the waitress!



  1. I'm very behind on reading your blog! I can't believe our oldest are 28!! Ah, yes, the Red Coach Inn...Mac memories at their best! Remember the fun in Lamaze class ;) Fortunately, I never had any water breaking experiences. I can't imagine the horror!

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!



Life on the Homestead

Life is keeping us busy.  We have had grans over, a couple family dinners, running teens to friends homes or a church activity. We are helping out a family friend who fell and broke a wrist. Now summer is in full swing and warm and humid!  The air conditioner has been doing its best to keep the home comfortable.

Next week our school age kiddos will be leaving for church camp.   That leaves us with the three adult children who still live at home.  This will be a first for us!

This week we have welcomed two, new to us, vehicles and next week two new licensed drivers....

Well.....I have been trying to get some pictures to upload but am not succeeding! Eeerrrrrr!  I will try again later, when I am not so frustrated!  I will try to keep calm and carry on! ;)
