And His Life Has Begun

We sat around the computer.....waiting those last few seconds until the clock said 5pm..... 

We didn't come into parenthood easily!! Month after month and year after year....we hoped and prayed for a blessing...just one, please Lord.....just one!! And then....after 1400 tests confirmed it......our prayers were answered!!

At 7 1/2 months......Brady took off walking and we beamed with pride and chased him from here to there fearing he would fall and get hurt. He didn't cause he was ready!!

At 2 Brady was my ever present little helper. On one shopping trip to get lumber he became impatient and asked how much longer we would be.....I explained we were getting 10 boards and that I had 8.....Brady responded a firm...."well get 2 more and we go!!" Indeed.....he was ready!!

At 5 when it was time for Brady to begin school.....he proudly entered.....then after only the first month declared he would now read.....Brady sat down and read every book in his collection that night....because he was ready!!

At each and every mile-stone......I have worried.....and he assured me.....because he was ready!!

At 5pm tonight....Brady received the letter......Columbia University in New York City has asked that he attend as a member of the Class of 2017. I worry......I fear......and yet I know......he is ready!! I am very proud of the young man with whom I have been blessed!! And yes......he is ready for his life to begin.....and so it shall!!

Stacey,
proudly......Brady's mom!!

It's My Prerogative!!

Yesterday I had an early morning doctors visit........ YUCKY!!!
Hubby took the day off to go with me........YEA!!!!!



Got a little light-headed.........YUCKY!!!
Hubby ran into Canton's Circle K and they had Pumpkin Spice cappuccino for me.....YEA!!!!



Laid on the couch the rest of the day with the heating pad.......YUCKY!!!
Hubby laid next to me......YEA!!!!


 Rejoice always, 
pray continually,

What a Grand Day

First......I got up this morning and walked across the hardwood and.....

 
......left footprints. Now some would say that means it's time to clean right....however....there was only one set soooooo......the Good Lord was obviously carrying me so I left them!! :O)
 
*******
 
Then......I learned that one of the president's secret service is a "shape shifter"
 
 
You can hardly tell tho' and soooooo..... that's really comforting!! :O)
 

*****
And.......remember willy.....
 

...he made it to freedom and is now offering wonderful online advise on how to increase your "man-hood". He goes by "big willy" now and emails me every day......I was tempted at first.....but then I decided our neighborhood has enough men already!! It is really heart warming tho' that he is free and really making something of himself!! :O)



Soooo......see what I mean......my day is grand indeed!!

I pray you are equally as blessed!!
