New born in the house

Sorry for the lack of posting. We have a newborn baby in the house. My sister-in-law is very sick in hospital and my mother-in-law is looking after her son. A new mother again in her sixties. So tonight I am giving my mother-in-law a break and we are looking after my 3 week old nephew. He is a beautiful baby, and I am super enjoying having him with us, but obviously I want my gorgeous sister-in-law well and back with her little man. We are hopeful that all will be well soon. The doctors seemed positive today. So, no Wednesday post, but I will be back on Friday. (Sorry.  I am amending this to Monday. I will be back Monday. We've been at the hospital all evening and I am beat. I want bed.)

  24. I wondered where you'd been! You showed interest in guest blogging at Southern City Mysteries a while back, and hadn't heard more...let me know if you still want to do that! I'd love to have your unique voice on my blog.

    Also, my prayers are with your sister. Congrats on her new baby boy, but I really hope she gets well soon. I can't imagine how hard that is on all of you. Good side: I hope you are enjoying that sweet infant!

    Prayers,

  37. Hey, I'm new. I hope your sister in law is well asap and that everyone gets some rest. I read your previous post and I can so relate. Maybe sometime you'll be able to check out my poetry blog (linked through my regular one). Words have been my therapy, too.

    I'm glad you have been able to work through so much and bless your husband!
