I'm Distracted

So much so that I almost burnt my house down. A Bisquick box never belongs on a stove top especially when the burner is on. Not a good idea. Not to worry - The Hubs caught it and saved the day. I was just standing around thinking - What is that smell? Smells like something is burning. Huh! Maybe it smelled like it because SOMETHING WAS!

I am distracted because our really good friends gave birth to a beautiful little girl on Monday. Daddy delivered her on the bathroom floor after the hospital sent them home. Trust me though when I say if there was any one I would trust delivering a baby other than the doctor and perhaps The Hubs - it is this guy. Truly amazing he is! Mama too. What a trooper!

So - things have not been so easy since and little Baby J is having some complications. She is now at Children's Hospital and has tested positive for Downs Syndrome. She is beautiful and seems to have a strong spirit - a real fighter. Her pictures are gorgeous and we can't wait to meet her.

So I am distracted and wish I could be there instead of here. I wish there was something I could do. These friends have been with us for every one of our three deliveries. They are truly amazing people and such special friends.

But I am here, what seems to be a million miles away, wishing and sending up prayers. Lots of prayers. So I am asking for everyone to pray with me. Please send up a prayer for our friends and there little blessing from above. Every little bit helps.

Have a wonderful, safe, and blessed New Year's Eve.
