I love me Uncle Dan!

When counting my many blessings;

I first thank God for Wyatt…..

And then I find that I am so glad to have my home, my refuge, to come back to when I’ve been away

So glad to have my little Chihuahuas who love me even though I have so many faults

So glad to be able to sit right here and be at peace….


Me, my ‘bobba’ and Uncle Dan

So glad to know that Wyatt has a grandmother and an uncle, (and a whole big group of people here) who love him beyond all reason….Who will try their very best to protect him from all the evil in this world.


When Uncle Dan sings; I listen!

So glad to have the good Lord to hold me up, even when I don’t think I can do it anymore on my own…..


Yes, maw-maw, I’m Riding backwards in my car seat in the shopping cart! I can see better this way!


I don’t care if my pacifier is pink!

Tonight, I find that I am truly grateful for all that God has given me…

All my many, many blessings….

Though it may not seem like much to some…

It is a whole heck of a lot to me


Thank God I am loved.

and I thank You God.

Oh, what precious pictures! And when I think of all you've been through, I thank the good Lord for sending you these blessings. You so deserve it. I wish I could give that baby a hug myself!

Sometimes we just have to sing His praises for all the blessings we do have. Our hearts are full to the brim for all the many blessings and we are so thankful for them

OH I just love your Wyatt Carlene. He has the most loving face and eyes... he looks so much like my Nicholas did. They are come to us from heaven's throne these babies and so very precious. Yes I am so glad he is surrounded by the love and protection of good parents and family and a loving grandma like you are. One can never be too careful these days. Yes we have so many blessings.... so many... I am thankful God pulled me through that custody battle and so many other things over the years and has blessed us beyond measure. You have such a kind and sweet spirit Carlene and I always feel and sense it in your entries and am glad you are my friend. May God bless you even more in 2009.

Hi Carlene,

I can hardly remember what life was like before my own grandson Roman was born, I`d didn`t think it was possible to have such a great love for another child but it was there from day one. Only us grandmothers know how much we are blessed. My own son is Daniel so Roman, like Wyatt has his own Uncle Dan. Take care of that gorgeous baby boy. :o)

Love and ((Hugs))

Much Love!
