I say we are 'terminal DIYers,' and we try it all: Home/Kitchen Design & Building, Cooking, Baking, Sewing, Gardening, Woodworking, Homeschooling... But the seasons are changing, and in this one I plan to rediscover the artist in myself. I'm stepping out with some ideas and seeing where they take me...and us...at Our Home for Ten (RHome410)!
After crying off and on for sad reasons all weekend, and still not forgetting the continuing heartbreak of others, I have now been shedding a few tears of absolute joy.
I just found out I'll be getting a new brother-in-law! Not that he'll seem new, since he and my baby sis have been together for a long time, and he's shown strong love and devotion to her and her children... and the rest of the family, especially in helping care for our parents, for several years. We've already considered him a beloved part of the family. But it's so exciting to look forward to their wedding, and I rejoice with them in this new step!!!!
Plus, now that Prince Steadfast and Princess Sassy have had a chance to tell everyone who needed a more personal announcement, I can tell you that Hubby and I will be grandparents this summer! This new precious life is busy making Mama very tired and very nauseous. But we've been able to peek in on him or her through ultrasound, and were thrilled to see a beating heart, waving arms, and kicking legs. Princess Sassy thought the ultrasound image looks similar to a baby owl, and has called the baby "Little Hootie," for now, because of it.
"Little Hootie" at 9 weeks
Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring
a reward from him.Like
arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth.
Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. Psalm 127: 3-5
