"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

Four Generations under One Roof!

As some of you know, my Mom and Grandma were out here for 5 days.  It was a pretty special time.  I really enjoyed having their company during the dreary weather days.  It was wonderful that our kids could get to know their great-grandmother.  I also learned some things about my own great-grandmother. She miscarried 2 children after having four.  Both were boys, one at five months along, and the other at 7 months.  My Grandma remembers burying the second one in a shoebox.  He was much the same size as Rachel, a little doll.  Hearing that made me wish she were here so I could ask her about that experience. 
Here's a picture of 4 generations of girls. (and one very silly boy)
