The First Saturday In May

April is gone and I won't even ask where it went. May is a busy month around here starting with Mothers Day on the 10th, Josh and Eric's birthday on the 12th, Isaac's 4th birthday on the 26th, my great nephews 5th birthday same day as Isaacs, my great nieces 2nd birthday (have to check the date). So, it's a busy month and I need to stay "awake" and not daydream so much. I've been doing a lot of that lately instead of doing the things on my "to do list" that need to get done. I love having all the doors and windows open in the house and listen to the birds outside in the trees. I can always tell when it is feeding time because I can really hear the babies chime in.
I love the hummingbirds that come right up and shower in the sprinkler while I water the plants by hand. They are so sweet! Poor Amos the cat has been getting harrassed by a huge bluejay that has a nest in the tree above the patio. Her babies are practicing jumping out of their nest and learning to take little flights. She dive bombs on him and though I feel sorry for him, I understand the mother instinct she has for her babies. I get lost sitting out there and listening to the sound of the water fountains and windchimes tinkling. I just get lost:) This is how I daydream and talk to God at the same time. I am praying for Kayleigh and her parents as they face such darkness in their lives. If you have a chance, click on her button and read the last few posts. She is alive but brain dead after surgery. Her parents face such hardship in decisions for her and for their finances. Stellan is back home with his family and living day by day with his condition that only God knows. I have found two new Trisomy 18 babies to pray for who are due later this year. Three babies who have Anacephaly (sp?) who will be born soon, Noah and April Rose, and one baby who is ten weeks old with this condition and doing well so far. I don't know why I get pulled into these families, but my heart hurts for them so much.

And, I am so excited for Kristy as her little girl will be born this month!! It has been a long road for her and Howard, losing Isaac and Asher, and waiting for this baby girl who appears to be perfect in every way. God promised them that He was doing a NEW thing in their lives, and this little girl is it. Praying for hope and joy to replace any doubts and fears as they wait to meet her face to face and look into her eyes. Your prayers for her would be so great. I can't wait to meet baby #5.

So, this is what I have been doing this past week and I think I better get busy and get my day going. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and do a little daydreaming along the way.

Love and Hugs, Laurie

I, too, have been praying so hard for Kayleigh. It has been such a hard stuggle for that dear family.

I believe that the blue jay and the mockingbirds must be related. They are similar in shape and they, too, are attacking our poor cat due to a nest in a bush where our cat rests.

Hope you have a wonderful week.
