NEW BEGINNINGS

It seems like the laughter at Gus Birdwell Elementary just ended.  Summer is now officially past.

822 is so close to the playground I can hear it from my backyard...but today...the laughter will be different

Grace was born in Hansford Hospital and I think I might have been the only patient besides her...it seemed like we were in a spa...except for the ouchie part

But, when Charles was born, I was in a very large hospital on the maternity floor and he was one of 5 baby boys born that day

when they would wheel those hungry little boys down the hall

I promise you...I could hear his little cry over all the rest as he came my way

Today and this year...the laughter at Gus Birdwell Elementary will be different...

because mixed in with all those precious little voices will be a voice...the one giggle...that I will be able to hear above all the others...

Look at that beautiful face. I can almost hear the laughter and giggles, too. Thank so much for visiting, Gina!! Hope all is well, and construction going smoothly.
Take care,

This touches my heart--as it would any mother. What a sweet memory! She is precious--gotta love a girl with a wide-open laugh. Pure Joy!

A smile and a tear at 7:30 in the morning - thanks for sharing this sweet thought. There is nothing like hearing the sound of your granchild laughing. We live beside a little park and the local daycare brings the little ones here every day for a walk - love to hear them playing even if I don't know any of them.
