Yardwork and aching muscles. But much more relaxed after my weed yanking and pulling. I love working in my flowerbeds. My flesh may cry and whine, but the mental benefits are always worth it. I just seem to forget until I get started. Then I loose myself in what I am doing and start thinking on God's amazing power. If God can take care of the flowers and create all this beauty, I need to remember He can take care of me and my family. And just like the weeds I am pulling out of my flowers, I need to pull the ugly out of my own life. Worry, doubt, fear...all the things that pull down my spirit. Replace it with the beauty that God gives us all...peace, joy, eternal life. So even though my knee is saying "change the ice bag please", my mind is much calmer. Good trade I am thinking :o)


Anyways.........did you know I am going to be a great aunt? Yep...our own Hillary is blessing us with a baby in November. This would be the dd/only child to our eldest sister Debbie Jo LOLOL (She just had her birthday this past week, so couldnt resist the lil poke.) We have given her all OUR ideas for names. She told us to and I quote, get out of the 80's. I think that is hilarious! Cause to me, the 80's was like what? 5 minutes ago? LOL She said we were offering up too old fashioned names. I like old fashioned names thank you very much. :o) She wants something different and unique. So we are all on pins and needles to hear what they come up with. My dh and I suggest Mercedes Louise (Louise after my mamaw who loved Hillary to pieces.) and call her Sadie Lou. This is assuming of course the baby is a girl! LOL We are such the bossy family. Healthy healthy baby is the main priority. Then be a girl! We offered up boy names also. Just in case. She shot down those also. LOL You would think this was HER baby? I know she doesn't read this. Right Deb?????

Of course, Hillary was born in 1987.... but it does seem like only last week when we brought her home from the hospital.

Well,Angela,I think it would be fun to see if anyone out there in blog-land has baby names that aren't "80's" sounding.lol

This could be fun! Folks?

I don't often respond to blog postings . . . but a little boy born recently in our church was named Deekan, pronounced like Deacon. I thought that was very clever. For a girl Teagan Grace is adorable . . .

Deekan and Teague Grace are both great! This almost makes me wish that I was the mommy-to-be and not just the Momma of the mommy-to-be!

Naming a baby is so important in shaping their lives I think.

Thank you for sharing with us.
