~ Mammaw's Birthday & The Beach ~



Hi friends~

First, I wanted to thank you all again....so many times when I read your comments your words bring tears to my eyes. You all mean so much to me....I'm truly blessed to have such special friends. THANK YOU!

Now, time for Mammaw's 74th birthday!

See her pretty flowers. :)


{ sorry the pic. is a little blurry }

The next morning we watched the sunrise and wondered if it might rain...

and it did.....all the way to Galveston Island....

But then just before we crossed the bridge....the sun came out....

The beach was beautiful...

clear skies....with gentle waves....


Then we HAD to stop for frozen yogurt....it was soooo good!


We had a pedicure~


& played in the sand...


Mammaw wore a cute hat

and we all

posed for pictures.... then shopped on The Strand.


It was a great day! Later that evening we met my in-laws for an Italian dinner and then we went to Cirque de Soleil.....I failed to take more pictures ( I was too full...lol. ) but the show was amazing and we enjoyed the good company. Thanks 'Mil & Fil'. :)

Happy Birthday Mammaw~ We Love You So Much!

Thanks everyone for coming over to celebrate Mammaw's special day.

Big hugs~ J

Thanks for stopping by and being concerned about me too. I'm running on close to empty right now. I'd much rather have this type of thing happen to myself than to my kids. The risks of this procedure are so high and I'm worried day and night. I know it's all in God's hands but I'm a little selfish and want it in mine so that I can somehow make sure he'll be okay. The stress and weariness shows greatly in Jill's features. She's carrying a very heaving load. Nicholas doesn't let on too much but I know he's worried too. He's a pretty private person (like his old mom) and doesn't like all the attention but relies heavily on our prayers....does that make sense? My brain is only about half here anymore. Thank you for your constant support. I know it's summer and you're busy but I need this kind of friendship right now and it's appreciated more than you know. Me

Make that Jill is carrying a "heavy" load not "heaving" load. See, I told you I was tired. The old brain cells need a nap!
