This morning I met a fellow blogger, Katie, for brunch. She lives in Georgia but her parents live near me so because she was here visiting for a week she invited me to meet her! I almost messed up and missed her because I'm so bad with e-mail (if you read my post yesterday and add in a ton of constant e-mail hopefully you will understand). I'm so glad I didn't miss her. She was so sweet and her little girl Bella was precious! Thank you so much Katie - it was really fun!
Harper did not agree. She spent most of the time crying. She just was in need of a nap (the good sleeping took a hiatus last night). Oh well - it was good to know you sleep - come back and visit sometime. She crashed when we got in the car so I made a quick stop for a few groceries. I ran into Laurie and the girls which was fun only for some reason people don't love it when you take up the baking aisle discussing your girls, life, and laughing. I can't understand why??? ha!
Doesn't she look cute in yellow? I saw this little romper at TJ Maxx and couldn't resist. She is my sunshine.
I want ya'll to pray for two things today:
- I am just sick today because Monica was one of the first people I added to the prayer blog and I was so excited when she became pregnant. This morning I got an e-mail from her and her husband letting us know that their little boy Duncan's heart stopped Monday at 25 weeks and they had to induce her and he was born last night. I can't imagine their grief. My heart is SO heavy. I love the blog world but it starts to feel as if there are rarely ever babies born healthy anymore. Do you feel that way? It's because the world has been made so small through the internet. I've discussed with my friends a lot lately that I'm terrified to have another child because I know of so many things that can go wrong. I don't understand why these things happen. But I KNOW who is in control and how much He loves us. Please just keep this family in your prayers today.
- Sweet little Bentley is having her heart surgery today. Please pray for a success and a quick recovery and for peace for her family. I can't imagine how I would feel if Harper had to have major surgery.
Okay - it is BEAUTIFUL outside today and I refuse to waste such a wonderful day. So we are going out for a walk at the park and maybe do some yard work. This is the kind of day that makes you happy to be alive and you just can't HELP but smile and drive with the windows down and put your toes in the grass! And if you'd like some free ice cream to go with a day like today - go check this out!
