Food for thought

"we women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. we have
to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is
comfortable for us. we have to develop the maturity to stop trying
to prove something. we have to learn to be content with what we

Loss is hard.  It is hard on the one who loses.  It is hard for the one's who love the one who has lost.  It is hard to know what to say to someone who has lost.  Most times you want to take away the pain of the loss from that person.  The worst thing in the world, especially as a parent, is to watch your child hurt.  To not be able to take away the pain that they are feeling from their loss.  Erica and Albert have suffered a tremendous loss.  They have had a miscarriage.  My heart breaks for them.  My  heart breaks because of all the things I can do as a mother to protect my child I can't take away this pain and loss.  Please go to to read how amazing my daughter is.  I love her!!

Do You See It?

Do you see the new pregnancy ticker that is up there? That's right -- Erica and Albert are expecting again. Didn't they just have Ruby you are asking? Well, yes they did. Did they get pregnant on purpose? Well, yes they did. Were we so totally excited that we wet our pants? Well, yes we are and yes I did. (Not really but that's because I was sitting down. But I'm sure I would have if I was standing up.)

Baby Holmstrom is expected to arrive in late April or early May. We can't wait!!

Grandbaby Number 3 Is On The Way!!!

I can't believe it! We are so excited. Grandbaby number 3 is coming April/May of 2011. I won't tell you who the proud parents are just yet. I need to give them the honor of announcing it. (Hint: It's not Amber and Erik because they are currently pregnant and due in January 2011 and I have not heard of someone being able to have two pregnancies going on at the same time.) Stay tuned!!!
