It was about this time exactly one year ago that our sweet Helen entered this world. She was about three weeks early and we were anything but prepared for that to be the day of her birth. She has taught us to take life less seriously, relax, and enjoy many, many early morning sunrises as she enters most days at dawn.
We had a nice birthday party with family and friends on Saturday. Big brother was his usual sweet self, enjoying the festivities with love and devotion for his little sister. I am still amazed that I, a woman who never considered myself capable of raising children, let alone keeping a simple green plant alive, now have two beautiful and healthy children. Just another example of how good God is.
