I was the only mom at church today with a corsage. And what a beautiful one!! The girls (& Nathan) special ordered a corsage for me with 9 roses...one for Autumn, Meagan, Krissy, Erin, Heather, Laura, Kara, Leah, & Nanna...and an unopened bud for Lainey. The little girl that sat beside me in Junior Church pointed at the unopened bud and said, "It didn't grow." I had to blink the tears away. How very true! You can bet this corsage & card will be stashed away with my keepsakes.
Krissy made our favorite coffee cake last night for a special breakfast this morning. Then for dinner, I had a ribeye steak done to perfection...well, perfect to me with a little black around the edges. Gary said he could hardly stand to throw that good ribeye on the hottest flame to do that to it, but that's just the way I like it. We had baked potatoes and peas to go with it and brownies with frosting for dessert. Then I took a nap.
It was a great day all around. It's amazing the changes in a year's time. Lainey is no longer with us, but we have a son-in-law and a grandson and Baby Stratton on the way.
God is good all the time, All the time God is good.
