A December Birthday

I can not believe that today our baby girl, Daughter #7, turns nine!  It seems like it yesterday this tiny, 31 1/2 week premature baby came into our lives.  I spent just shy of two months on bed rest with her between home and hospital.

Daughter #7 is probably the most dramatic of all our daughters.  Not a drama queen, but a funny dramatic!  Sometimes we wonder where she comes up with her wit and drama, then we look at the great teachers she has had in her life! 

Daughter #7 is not only the youngest daughter, but the youngest child.  She is the daughter that has played with her baby dolls longer than the other girls, probably because she has not "grown-up" with a baby in the house.  Nieces and nephews are great, but they do not live here all the time. 



  1. Oh, I hope your celebration of your daughter's birthday was terrific and blessed! I'm sure you all rejoice in the wonderful gifts of family that you have been given by our generous Lord Jesus and it shows in your love for them. I wish we were next door neighbors :)
    May you have a wonderful blessed CHRISTmas as you worship the coming of our Savior. We were just talking about that He didn't despise coming as a baby in the likeness of men. How amazing is that!!??
    Grace, mercy, joy, and peace to you, Christy and to your whole family. God bless you all now and in the year ahead.

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!
