Addison's Bag

I've got everything ready for the baby... the baby just has to get here.  The Birdie Scraps made a cute bag. The quilt is going to be rolled and tied with ric rac and bound over to its new home.

If the pictures have seemed a little dark lately--- it's because they are.  I love outside pictures.  Everyday for a week it's been cloudy and rainy. We've really needed the rain, but a compromise of rainy nights is definitely in order.

Chelsey and her sweetie parted ways last week.  Both are great kids-- sometimes things just don't work out.  Like I told Chelsey, "He's just not the one..." Doesn't softened the tears though.  I guess I need to be this constructive parent and point out the faults on both sides, but there is nothing to be gained from doing that. She just needs to find her smile again. Doing the right thing isn't always easy.  Her brother will be up this weekend.  He's taking a class at the hospital in the town she lives in.  They will be the dynamic duo for a month. It be good for both of them.

Such a cute and thoughtful gift once again.

So sorry about your daughter and her boyfriend. Those days are so tough on young people. I'll send some prayers her way.
It's also hard on parents when our kids are bummed:(

We could use some sunshine down here too. The rain is nice in that it's not heavy and just enough to make the gardens (and weeds) grow. But we could use a little drying out.

Blessings to you

I love the quilt and the bag. Beautiful job! What a treasure for that mom and baby!

I'm sad to hear about Chelsey's breakup, but what amazing timing for your two to get to spend a month together. I hope that will speed up her recovery. Our children will never know how deeply we feel their pain until they are parents themselves.

Love and blessings

I love this quilt and bag; I'm sure the mommy will, too.

Sorry about Chelsea and her fellow. I think I always hurt as bad as the kids did when this happened. Someday I'm sure she'll look back and see how things turned out for the good. In the meantime, I'll be praying for that day to come soon.

Oh the quilt and the bag are adorable!!!

Thanks for the encouragement on giving up diet Coke. I laughed when I read your comment about praying every time you think about wanting a diet Coke..Girl with me it will give a whole new meaning to praying without ceasing!!!!!

Blessings to Chelsey~♥
