Those of you who know me know that I don’t get emotional often. But this hit me so hard and I just started crying. I had to turn away and busy myself just to get a handle on it.
I don’t know what time Johnathan was born. Before 9AM, I think. He was 6lbs, 7oz, and 19 inches long. Those extra 6 weeks he got beefed him up compared to his brother’s 3-pounder birth. Like with Scott, I was too sick to see him after his birth, and he went straight to the NICU. When Gregg brought me pictures, I joked that his nickname didn’t need to be Jeb, it needed to be Biff, because he looked like a little football player.
Ten days ago, I left my home in Kentucky and headed south to Tallahassee, Florida. I got into town Thursday afternoon, visited friends, and went to another friend’s house for the evening. Friday morning I did some business at the courthouse, had lunch with friends, picked Kaylee up from school, had dinner with friends, and went back to a friend’s house for the evening. Saturday morning, we headed south toward the Florida Panhandle’s coast, picking up a friend of Kaylee’s on the way, and took up residence in a little beach house in Mexico Beach.
I am SO excited to be participating in the 5 Minutes for Mom Ultimate Blog Party. Having the opportunity to meet so many other bloggers is extremely exciting! I love parties. I love mingling, networking, trading business cards, admiring shoes. So, if you’re here visiting from another blog, and attending this Party, it’s wonderful to meet you. I’m Hallee Bridgeman. Here is my card:
This Easter Sunday, I will divert from the Creation debate to share with you 1) why I think that spiritual recoil had such an impact on our household, and 2) what I think we are going to do as the spiritual leaders of our family for ministry as a result.
The Easter holiday is barely removed from its pagan background. Easter even gets its name from the pagan goddess of spring, Eostre. The myth has it that she rescued a bird whose wings were frozen from the winter wind by turning it into a rabbit. Because the rabbit had once been a bird, it could lay eggs. And there you have the modern Easter Bunny and Easter eggs.
The other day, Gregg instant messaged me from his work and I told him I was making him some Cinnamon Chip Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, and asked him if there was anything else he wanted me to send him. He asked for waffles.
Yes, waffles.Pin It
