Here are a couple of pics, taken Monday night, right after Brodie was born. I think Janelle looks beautiful. How can a mother go through so much and still look like that?
I have to say...God knows what He's doing when he gives the babies to the young. I don't recall ever being this tired, and for ME to say those words..that's saying something. This week has been both one of the best of my life, and one of the hardest. My job blows---I have had to be at work, on time, and as for the work load - it has never been bigger. But I have managed and produced and stayed upright throughout the days-and then the nights. Mark and Craig and Nick are taking care of the Ice Cream Store in the evenings and this weekend. I am doing baby duty will Janelle, although---to tell you all the truth, she doesn't need my help. For all the times I asked God "what are you doing, giving a baby to this daughter of mine that can't even take care of herself?", I'm sorry. She has proven me (delightfully) wrong.
And now I have to get up and going...I overslept this morning, just turned that alarm right off. And now of course, I am late. Happy Friday to you all.
