Today I just worked on some more things for Miss Oakley...it's so hard to be so far away from them right now. Tomorrow our little Oakley Ann will be born, I wish that there weren't so many miles between us. So grateful though that they have some family there with them, that will be a big help to them and to Big Brother Kai ( whose world will be changing very soon ).
I am so excited to see her sweet little face, and pray hard that all will go well with her and her Mommy tomorrow. I sent this afghan to her and they got it today just in time! Of course she will only need it indoors with air conditioning, because Texas is pretty hot this time of year. Still just want her to be wrapped up in something from her Nana!
She will be born on July 31st, that is a very special day because that was my Aunt Ina's Birthday. She was the woman that we lived with for the first 10 years of my life. She was like a 2nd Mother to me and someone that I loved dearly. She died when I was only 10 years old, I was pretty sure my (10 year old ) world was ending when she died. She left me a quilt and a few photos and they still hold a very special place in my heart and home, and to this day I still miss her!
How sweet that my 4th granddaughter will be born on her birthday.
I hope I can sleep tonight, I am soooo excited!
I just love being a grandmother and realize that I am so blessed to be able to be a part of these sweet children's lives. Now, another sweet grandchild will be here to teach her sweet Nana ...all the things that I will need to know about life!
Good Night dear friends!
