God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."
---Muhammad Ali

"We are driven to create at this deep wordless level of the soul because we are all fashioned in the image of a God who is an Artist." - Michael Card, Scribbling in the Sand.

Wow I forgot how much work a new baby is. Sabrina was up about every 3 hours last night and I was up with her. But, she’s a trooper, she gets Mikaela fed and changed and back in bed pretty quickly. Mikaela was a little slow on learning to latch and drink because they had to suction her so deeply when she was born but she has the idea now and is doing great. She’s taking about 3 oz a feeding and then sleeping about 3 hours before she needs fed again. And Mikaela loves her swing if she’s’ a little fussy put her in her swing and get it going and she never moves. It’s her favorite place to hang out.

We have ran a few errands came home and took a nap, did a couple loads of laundry and cleaned the upstairs. Tomorrow I’ll try to get all of the down stairs cleaned up.

Jake and Cortes are both so good with Mikaela. They both pace and don’t understand when she cries but they love her and want us to take care of her.

Well not much else going on…I need to get off and think about fixing something for dinner. Have a great Friday.

Hugs and Love,
