...this is our sweet punky Maude at 9 months.
as you can see
she rarely slows down enough to take her picture.
no naps for this girl.
no sleeping through the night for this girl.
she just might miss something important
if she were to close those
big hazel eyes for just
Poppa and I (nie, as loud as you can scream it)
are so fortunate
to be able to spend a few hours
with Maude on Fridays.
Her mama doesn't have help on that day
and even though she works
the little one can keep her too busy.
It is such a special time
and one that I cherish more than words can describe.
So long ago,
when I was diagnosed with
type 1 diabetes
I was told by the doctors that
I would not live to see
I prayed every day
(and still do)
that I would be
beyond my understanding
and able to share in the lives of
I am so thankful.
