Thankful For Spring and So Much More
We have had beautiful spring days here and our family has really enjoyed spending some time outside.

We did school outside a few days and it was so enjoyable to sit at the table and talk and take in the sunshine. I know the hot hot hot days of summer will be upon us before I am ready so I intend to drink in every moment of each spring day.

Paige loves the sunshine too because that means she can go outside and ride her bike. I'm sure her Dad will love the fact that she is riding her bike in her baseball uniform, cleats and all.













I love this little girl so much. She has come so far in overcoming her speech, language and developmental delays. When I watch her my heart is filled with thankfulness to a God who listened to this mama's cries and worries over her child and has worked a miracle in her life. We have been blessed with people who care so much about her and her progress. I know this little girl can truly do anything and I am sure God has something very special planned for her. She has such a sweet and gentle spirit. Her teacher's are always commenting to me how kind she is and how she cares about the other kids in her class. That tender heart will probably cause her much pain at times but I wouldn't change it for anything. It truly does make her who she is.

Well, I'm off to take a shower. Garrett has a basketball tournament this weekend. Yes, you read that right. Not baseball, but basketball. This is the big tournament weekend that ends the season and his team is playing for first place today at 11:30. So, I guess I better get moving.

Pictures to follow, I promise grandma.

What a sweet post. Thanks for sharing it! I was just commenting to a friend that being Mommy to these treasures is such an amazing gift, isn't it?!

Thanks for those reminders -- I have a daughter who struggles with speech and language and I worry, too. It's good to know that God has a plan and that He is in control.

Oh, a Disney Princess bike...I'll be sure to keep my kids away from seeing your blog for a while :-) The love in your words for Paige is so sweet to read. You are a great mom. She is blessed to have you!
