In the past weeks, we celebrated 2 birthdays from a hospital room...
and a "repeat" celebration in a darling Cafe Chocolate Pi in Tampa. We also blessed (a BIT similar to a baby christening, for my Catholic friends) darling Gwendolyn at LifePoint Church.I bought the white with pink trim dress for Gwen in Sevilla that she's wearing for the baby dedication.
My sweet mama after 2 surgeries, and some hard challenges, back here in ICU, where we watching (sleepily) a worship service from LA together.
Tampa Tribune is the name of our newspaper locally... and since I'm spending time with my wonderful family here during some special highs & lows, I thought it appropriate to share some of those ups and downs. When Bruce and Heather got married, Mom was recuperating from another surgery (up & around, but still going slowly), she reminded me recently. And I was in Germany having back surgery and missing the whole thing. It certainly seems, doesn't it, that sometimes our biggest blessings & our deepest valleys run on "parallel tracks."
