I've been offline for the last couple of days my desktop decided to crash. But I had to figure out a way to get online specifically for this...
Can you believe that one morning, not too long ago, I received an invitation to be a part of an online baby shower?! Totally amazing and totally something I wanted to be a part of! I was blog hopping one day a few months ago when I ran across Leslie's blog and I've been hooked ever since! She is an absolutely amazing lady and her personality really shines through in her posts, her love for her family, her amazing faith, her honesty, I just had to be in on this surprise that was sure to bring such a special lady such joy.
Hand-made gifts, Leslie's language of love...but I'm not crafty and talented like a lot of her other blog friends so I had absolutely NO IDEA what to make her darling baby Cade. It took me a long time to decide, but finally I figured I'd crochet a cute baby blanket and a couple of hats...so I went online and picked a cute pattern (turns out it was the exact stitch my Welita (TxG) had taught me how to crochet---visually, pre-pattern reading---when I was first learning)! Many wonderful memories I relived, many positive thoughts and prayers went into each and every stitch (and many sweet hugs from Da'Gorgeouses so excited about the gift for the "tiny baby"). I had my entire family asking about Leslie, how she was doing, and sending up prayers for her.
awaiting the news that your darling boy is here.
Peace, love and prayers we've sent you my friend,
but the secrets we've shared and saved for the end.
So happy, so eager to share in your joy
as you shower with kisses your dear baby boy.
Gifts from the heart, the things we have made,
to welcome with blessing your sweet baby Cade.
Mommy, Daddy, Ry-bug will soon add one more,
making them a healthy, happy, and loving, family of four!
