home again

I find that I've been making a list in my head of firsts since I've been home: first cup of real coffee, first shower in my own shower (without sandals on my feet!), first night sleeping next to my husband again, first bedtime prayers with my kids, first time running a load of laundry, first time calling my friend whose number was outside the area codes allowed by the hospital phone, first time watering the azalea on my porch.

We were too blitzed to plan anything for Valentine's Day this year; Adam and I didn't even remember to say "Happy Valentine's!" to each other until the morning was half over. But you know what? I'll take all of these firsts for Valentine's this year and be very, very happy indeed.

peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell

Hi Jessica- I hope this is you, my niece. I found you by searching for you on google. I had wondered if the twins had been born. I have been praying for you and them. I am making them quilts, just as I did for the other kids. You have a huge task on your hands raising these 4 little ones. Blessings on you all. Love, Aunt Bonnie
