Sunday, Jan 29 -- We were honored to host Pastor Neil and Lisa, Summer and Andrew and Mom and Dad for a luncheon of home-made Carnitas, tortillas, Mexican rice, salsa, guacamole and cabbage! Yum! We had a great time swapping stories of the proverbial skeletons in our familial closets.
Monday, January 30-- Baby Emma Davis was only with us for two days before she went into the arms of the Savior. She is the daughter of two very precious people, Jim and Marie who love her so very much. Today, she passed from this world. I have to believe that this was a mercy of God to spare her from difficulty here that would have arisen from her too premature birth or some disorder we don't know about. Her tiny pinky was like her daddy's and we grieve with he and her mama.
Tuesday, January 31-- I made a new friend last week in Katie and we met for lunch today to swap stories about our lives, share about our church family and to talk about my business endeavors. She's in partnership with her mom to help new businesses gain financing. Pretty cool stuff. We enjoyed our time together and found we have a lot in common.
Wednesday, February 1 -- There is banana warfare going on in the school-room today. No one knows how to contain it!
Thursday, February 2 -- Bean is a very funny dog. Just prior to this, he'd been smack in between Jeremy and I as we hugged good morning. Then, when J started his morning push ups, Bean parked himself to stand watch. Funny puppy.
Friday, February 3 -- A self-portrait today. It's one of those things where I saw something in the mirror that I liked, but I wasn't able to capture it and so I got this. I'm not thrilled with it. It's ok. But its not wonderful. It's certainly not me looking my best. But it is me and I'm trying to remember that it's ok not to be a supermodel, LOL.
Saturday, February 4 -- This is an image of poor Bean the dog who is very uncomfortable when a camera is pointed his direction. He just isn't comfortable with his own handsomeness being recorded.
There you have it. Saturday was also the day for the service for Baby Emma. I was amazed when at least 200 people showed up and there was only standing room left in the church for the service.
