I Have A Crazy Announcement To Make

Oh My Goodness!  That is all that I can say.  I am in shock, still trying to figure out how this happened!  I know it is truly an amazing gift!  Happy is the man that hath his quiver full! Psalm 127:5  I can't stop writing exclamation marks!  Yes, I am going to have another baby.  Get fifth child!  I will be forty this year and I thought we were done!  I guess God has other plans for our lives.  I am thrilled that he chose us to have another baby but sometimes I think, Lord I am going to be forty, can I handle this?  I know that he knows what he is doing, I just have to keep reassuring myself that God will be there to hold my hand.  Aside from my shock, my kids are so ecstatic.  They can't quit talking about the baby and telling everybody, I mean everybody.  My four year old told three people while we were out today that I was pregnant.  Then I took my mother-in-law to the doctor the other day and the doctor said, "Is this your first?"  When I told him that it was my fifth he had a very disturbed look on his face and said, "How do you do it?"  I think he was meaning, how can I manage five!  Well, let me tell you, only by the grace of God, my friends.  Pray for me ya'll!  Pray for me!

A Tribute To My Mom

Sarah "Bonnie" Roberts

My Mom has always been there for me!  
She is one of those self-less mothers that would do anything for her children.  
She was there to cheer me on when I graduated from nursing school!  
She made my wedding dress!  
She made all of the food for my wedding and catered it. 
She took care of my Daddy when he was dying of lung cancer.  
She wouldn't sleep anywhere but by him on the couch when he was dying in the hospital bed.  
She was there for me with every birth of my children.  
She raised my sister's daughter.  
She has been a shoulder to lean on for my other sisters. 
She has praised my husband for his intelligence and his love for me.  
She has helped to watch my children when I had appointments. 
She has come over and cleaned my house when I had just had it!  
I can't tell you how many loads of laundry she has folded.  
She has always been there for me!  
She is my best friend!
What a Mom!
