Today I have company. A little bright-eyed girl. She must have caught her brother’s germiness. I do not like for her to be under the weather…but I always enjoy a baby in the nest. (The Mr. is nodding…while reading this.)
This little bright-eyed girl who grew under my heart, has always been a gentle soul. She was born in November right on the heels of 9/11. A gentle soul was exactly what this world needed. The first time that I held her in my arms, she was doing this gentle little cooing as if to say “It’s okay Momma…we did it…I’m here.”
A little while ago she was over on the couch playing on the iPad. I could hear screaming. When I asked her what she was playing…she replied “Rag Doll Blaster Deluxe 3.” Okaaaaaay. (The rag dolls were screaming…not her.)
I feel blessed beyond measure to be a mother. I take it very seriously. The Mr. and our children are my heartbeat. They let me know that God is full of mercy and grace and that He definitely will…give beauty for ashes.
Have a wonderful day, Dirt Roaders. I’m gonna stay here with my baby…while she blasts rag dolls. Wish us luck!

I hope she feels better. My youngest son was born just a few weeks before 9/11. I was holding him in my arms when it all unfolded on the tv screen. A baby is God’s opinion that the world should go on. 🙂
Stephanie…thank you. I’m sure that she will. It was very hard wasn’t it? There really aren’t any words for the depth of sorrow that I felt during all of that. Yes…God has a plan. I’m glad that part of it…included babies for you and I. 🙂 k.

Beautiful post! I love what you said about God giving beauty for ashes. Hope your sweet babe feels better soon!
Kelly…Thank you. I sure hope that she does too. We are so ready for spring…and sunshine and outside…along our stretch of the dirt road. It makes me want to run around with a can of Lysol…spraying it and saying “Germs be gone!” in my best British accent. (Jums be gone!) lol! k.
