LOVE..just got bigger

 Love,  it is an all encompassing word.  
You can love pizza
You can love to run
You can love to create
You can love to explore

My life is so full of Love
I love my family;
I love all my pets;
I love all my friends, near and far;
I love the way the sun shines in my kitchen window;
I love watching cattle graze;

I love being in my studio and just piddling around
and never knowing what my finished piece will look like until I am done..

What would we do without it?

Just when I think I can not love more...
We get this gift from heaven..

My beautiful stepdaughter delivers the most precious baby boy...

 Colt arrived Thursday, Feb 9th
7.2 lbs 19.5 "

A head full of dark hair like his mom and big strong hands like his dad.

The sweetest, most beautiful baby.
His big brother is pretty proud..

My heart just grew in size 10 times over.
My life just got more joyous
Love just got bigger...

on a side note..
I will be in Atlanta for the next week or so.  I will be there taking my dad
to his radiation treatments.   My parents are staying with my brother who lives close to Emory University Hospital.  My brother  is a Delta captain and will be flying, so I am taking over for the week.   I am looking forward to spending time with my mom and dad. I love the Decatur area where I will be staying.  My first priority is to take care of my Dad, make sure he is comfortable.  But I do want to get my mom out to a few good antique shops if she is up to it.

I am wishing all of you a very Happy Valentine's Day that is full of

Blessing to the new arrival and may there never be a day that the lord is not in his life.

Much prayers for your dad and your safety in your travels.

Oh Cindy...little Colt is a darling!!! How blessed you are indeed. I loved reading all the things you are grateful for, and it makes me adore you even more to know more of your heart. I believe that those who take time to count their blessings have more blessing to count in the end : )
Take care of yourself and your sweet parents. I will keep your dad in my prayers.

CINDY!!!!!!! I am late in responding; late night from school, you know..... is a VERB! It is what we do even to the unlovely and tough-to-love.....and that is a daily lesson I must learn. I know it, but OH does it take practice!!!!!!!!

Your dear little addition is just SWEET AS PIE! AND thank you for your visit and kind kind WORDS! I am lovin' being in my studio on the weekends; I have barely enough time to fill my shop, but thank you for mentioning it. It is fun and this summer when I have time off, I plan to fill it with more silly and whimsical things.
