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.

I never thought I would say I’m glad a weekend is over! It was a long weekend; I really appreciate all the support all of you have given me.

Tonight I get to spend some time with my sweet Mikaela. I get to spend this week with her I think she is so special. I love the way that she will look at you and grin when you talk to her.

Sabrina and Mikaela are spending a couple of days with me and visiting with family and friends. I can’t wait to spend time with them. Mikaela is growing so fast. It’s amazing how fast babies grow. As a parent I don’t think you notice it as much because you are so busy with trying to take care of the baby, working and all the parts of daily life. But, as a grandparent you can take the time to slow down and really notice.

I don’t have much time today but just wanted to say thank you again for all the kind words! I am really blessed to have such amazing friends.

Love and Hugs,

Jane

Jane, i think you are right about being a parent...you don't notice how quickly they've grown up until they are almost gone from the house. I was so anxious to get through each stage, I didn't notice how much they had grown till much later. Enjoy your time with Mikaela!
