** Due to the increasing severity of MY ILLNESS, it has become impossible for me to continue to post on a regular basis. Unfortunately, as much as I desperately long to, I am also unable to visit each of your blogs often or reciprocate all the loving, supportive comments many of you continue to leave - even though at times it may appear as though you've arrived at some long ago, forsaken blog! With that said, I really want you to know that I miss every single one of you and that I really am still here! I'm just too sick and too weak most days to be able to sit up long enough to create a brand new post...or even read one. However, I absolutely do receive AND read every new encouraging word you leave (and, often, the old ones, again and again!) and I cherish them now more than ever! I truly appreciate your love, support, and, most importantly, your precious time spent on your knees in prayer for my family and me. It ALL means the world to me and I am truly blessed to have friends like you!

FYI: All comments come to my email, which I can easily read on my phone. I also enjoy Facebook on my phone because I can catch up on A LOT in a very short time there. Soooo, if you're on Facebook, come 'friend' me there! {{HUGS}} **

Today my oldest grandson, Connor, turns 7 years old!! I am totally amazed and somewhat frightened at just how quickly time seems to be passing these days. It truly feels like only yesterday that I was giving birth to Connor's mom and now she has a child turning seven! It is so crazy! I was definitely a very young first time mom, and so was she, but it still doesn't seem possible at all that I am already old enough to have grown children, much less a grandchild who is quickly approaching double digits! **sigh**

Oh well, they say having children young keeps you young. I used to think I agreed, but lately I'm not so sure. I have been feeling mighty old!

Connor celebrated his birthday this past weekend at Cochran Mill Nature Center. He and all the other kids invited had a fun time playing with all the different animals and wild creatures they have there.

Here are a few pictures from his party that my daughter shared...

and holding a yucky snake! Ewww....

Forget the presents! He is loving the money!

Connor and his 1st cousin, Harper
Harper was born on the very same day, just 30 minutes later!
Don't they look like twins??

Connor, I hope you have a wonderful birthday today! I can't wait to see you soon!

Happy Birthday! My mom worked for a Conservation Guild as a volunteer when I was growing up and they had a Nature Center I adored. I wouldn't have been brave enough to hold a gater though!

Returning your visit from Lady Bloggers! :)

It's my first visit to your blog, and I can't believe you're a gramma. Wow!

I'll be back. Thank you for opening your life to us and for sharing your faith. Even those of us who have faith need a dose from others now and again.
