A week to remember

Tomorrow I will be heading home after spending one of the best weeks of my life with my daughter and her husband and baby Makiya.

It has been such a blessing to be able to share this first week of Makiya's life with her parents. While I have been here to help the new parents out a bit, I have received the most abundant blessing I am sure, as I have seen the love that they have for each other spill over onto this precious little girl.

I take home with me precious memories of this week that I will hold in my heart always. It will be sad to leave tomorrow, but I leave knowing that God will keep this family in His tender care, and filled with gratitude for this experience.

I hope Linda you get to go back really really soon! I spent three weeks with my daughter when ours was born and leaving was hard--I'll be thinking of you. What a blessing you had to be there! She will remember it always.

How wonderful for you to be able to spend that time with your daughter and her family! I'm sure it meant the world to them too. Beautiful baby!

As to you comment about Bears! I have to tell you - when I was a little girl, I had this recurring dream that I'd be taken from my family and when I finally found my way home, I'd go knock on the door (knock? on my own door?) and bears would answer the door! laughing....my family would have all gone away and a family of bears would be living there....
