One more sleep till Dakotah turns 5. Wow...5...I remember holding her in the hospital while they did her blood tests when she was born and it seems like yesterday. It is hard to believe it is almost 5 years. Five years ago right now I was busy sewing a doll dress. My Mom was in hospital. About 12:30 am I got the call that Nicci was in hospital and Dakotah was about to be born. After she was born, James wanted to take Dakotah to see my Mom who was in the same hospital but it wasn't allowed as there were too many bugs floating around the med/surg floors so early the next morning James went to the area Mom was in and got a wheelchair and took her for a ride to maternity. Boy was she surprised.....the baby and Nicci were in the hospital for several days so Mom spent a lot of time on maternity getting to know her new little great granddaughter. I spent a lot of time there also and eventually drove them all home from the hospital. And now I have been baking cupcakes for her to share at preschool tomorrow. Time sure does fly by.
To believe is to know that every day is a new beginning. It is to trust that miracles happen, and dreams really do come true. To believe is to see angels dancing among the clouds,To know the wonder of a stardust sky and the wisdom of the man in the moon. To believe is to know the value of a nurturing heart,The innocence of a child's eyes and the beauty of an aging hand,for it is through their teachings we learn to love. To believe is to find the strength and courage that lies within us, When it is time to pick up the pieces and begin again. To believe is to know we are not alone, That life is a gift and this is our time to cherish it. To believe is to know that wonderful surprises are just waiting to happen, And all our hopes and dreams are within reach. If only we believe.
I am a mother of two grown sons and gramma to 4 darling little grandchildren. When I can find the time I enjoy reading, gardening, sewing, walking, visitng friends on my computer and my doll hobby. I also enjoy travelling. I lived in Hawaii for many years and miss being there a great deal. In recent years our destination of choice has been Southern California where we always have a wonderful time and the weather is fantastic. Computers are not my strong suit, nor is technology so I am just stumbling my way through and learning as I go along. Thank you for visiting my blog!
