birthdays!. Today we have two birthdays in our family.
One year ago on my MIL's birthday, Charley was born, both into this world and into our hearts!
Behold, children are a blessing from the Lord Psalm 127:3a
It was a VERY long day, especially for his mama who did a great job with what all we mama's know is HARD!!! They didn't just come up with the word labor for no reason!!!
Meme was patiently or not waiting.....I just realized I didn't get a picture of her with Charley that day. She was in taking care of HER baby, Charley's mama.
