GRATITUDE

Today, I am linking to Seasonal Sundays at The Tablscaper and Gratitude Sundays at A La Carte.
I am grateful for the sunshine coming through my windows today (even though it doesn’t allow me to take a head-on picture of my Valentine tree).

I am most grateful for the health of our newest grandson.  He weighed 1 pound 14 ounces when he was born on November 30th.  He is still on oxygen and in the hospital, but he now weighs over 4 pounds.  He is a little miracle, and our family is so grateful for all of you who have been praying for our little Cooper.

Laurie -- thanks for the update on Cooper...so glad to hear good blessings for your new grandlove. We will be looking foward to hearing all about his upcoming adventures with his marvelous grandmother at her home aka The Holiday House! It will be fun to see him as he becomes a part of all the celebrations through the year.

Oh, Laurie, I am so glad to get this wonderful update on Cooper! I didn't realize it until you have his birthdate, but he was born on the same day as my new granddaughter Emily! I know his parents cannot WAIT to finally take him home. I hope it's not much longer!

Wonderful news about baby Cooper, Laurie!
I am grateful for a hubby who laughs a lot, for safe travel for my Chickie this weekend, for a home we enjoy, for the privilege of making a home for my family, for God's omnipresence.

That is such wonderful news about Cooper. My mother had a rough start and born at home. I've always thought she was as strong as she was because of that rough start. She was feisty and a scrapper.:-)

Palomasea said...

Bless you, sweet friend...
