Our Family Feels so Blessed this 4th of July.


I am so proud to be an American....Oh Beautiful for Spacious Skies, God Bless America....all songs that have played in my head all day. Each of those songs touches my heart. I just love patriotic songs. I can never remember a time our nation was more in need of prayer.
Since we have had quite an emotional and tiring two weeks, our celebration was low key. We have much to celebrate! We spent the afternoon visiting our new little one and then watched the fireworks show at Harrah's Louisiana Downs with the other three grandsons. It is so hot here, that none of us were for up for any long period of time outside. Here are a few snapshots from our day.
SAFE AND SOUND
Aunt Manda's first time to hold me.
Jack is not sure he wants his Mom to hold me!
POP holding his new little BUDDY!
I finally just kissed her. She is smitten!

Micah, Amanda, Parker and Jack....

Teresa = Sweet Post. Sweet Pictures. Sweeter Family. I understand the tired part. This is the first day I've been able to make it to the computer since last Thursday. The old leg just didn't like it when I got out of the chair. Hopefully (prayerfully) my electric wheelchair will get here soon. That reminds me, I need to call and make sure there is a way for me to prop up my right leg. It will never work if there isn't. Now I'll remember because I've told somebody.

Thank you for putting up with my rambling. I've had my bedtime pills and they are beginning to kick in.

Take care and God Bless,
Mimmy
