In the wee hours this morning I received a wonderful phone call - the one I've been waiting for! No matter it was just after 2 a.m. All things come to a screeching hault around here when a baby is born...even if it was in Menifee, CA! At 2:10 this morning Mom called to tell me my little sister, Erin, had their baby girl. At first I was confused when the phone rang, thinking maybe I was dreaming it, but when I reached over, pressed the button, and heard Mom's voice I just KNEW it was good news. When she told me Erin had her baby I was thinking, "Oh, what wonderful news...and on the 4th of July, too!" Well, it was the 4th here, but not there yet. No matter, a baby was born! Hon and I want to congratulate Jack and Erin on the birth of their second daughter, Jordyn Lea. She was born at 10:22 p.m. last night and although I thought Mom said she was 8 lb 15 oz, Dad's email shouting his joy to the world says she is 7 lb 15 oz. ...oh, and 19" long. No matter what the weight. I was half-asleep relaying the info to Hon anyway. I do remember Mom said she was screaming her lungs off when she talked with Erin. Hehehehe - I hate to laugh at that, but Eldest was a total screamer and I swear spent the first six months of his life hollering. A big congratulations to Jack, Erin, Jackie, and Jordyn! May the years ahead be all you wish them to be!
Now today is another special day in the history of our country. I'm sure all of you out there know it's Independence Day. You know, the 4th of July. Whether you're sleeping in, swimming, working, or hanging out with the family...whether it's hot dogs and hamburgers, ribs, marshmalows, or a t.v. dinner...remember the hard work and determination our kin from long ago America went through to give us what we have today. Enjoy the day no matter what you're up to. Sing God Bless America...sing God Bless My Underwear if you feel like it, just sing something that stirs your soul even a little bit in rememberance of everyone that made our country what it is today and continues to be ~ FREE! Smiling & Waving, Sharon
