Happy St. Patrick's Day
May Joy and Peace surround YOU
Contentment latch your Door
And Happiness be with YOU now,
And Bless YOU evermore.
Isn't this little St. Paddie's Lady just the cutest thing ever??!!
My heritage is Scott-Irish and would love to know more about my family in the old country.
How many of you have seen the TV series that takes famous people and searches their genealogical roots?
So, fascinating and has made me want to take what I already know about my heritage and go to the next step. I've joined Ancestory.com and hopefully will add information to my family history particularly on my mother's side.
Here is a picture of my favorite little leprechaun
James spending time with Aunt LaLa
This little leprechaun stood for 30 minutes with minimum support last week in physical therapy!! As most of you know, James has Cerebral Palsy and he is making such great progress! He is currently enrolled in Horseback riding lessons which mimics to the brain the act of WALKING!! Isn't that miraculous???
James must work hard to keep his balance while on the horse and the slow gait of the horse makes the brain think that James is walking. I never realized how important walking is to all stages of development across the board.
James WILL WALK independently one day and what a glorious day that will be!
I've heard from several Grandmothers out there who have grandchildren with developmental issues and I am amazed at the unconditional love we feel for these precious gifts. Our lives are richer for having them in our lives!
BTW, here is an interesting contest so I thought I would bring your attention to it just in case you're interested. I did something wrong when I copied the linky info but you can read the address at the bottom of the picture.
Today's post is short...I have lots of quilting and sewing projects to complete. I am in an apron swap which needs to be mailed out on Monday!
SEW.....let's go SEWing!!!
I know...it says Happy new Year but I thought it looked more like St Patrick's Day than New Years so I used it anyway. I can do that if I want...I'm a big girl now and can do whatever I choose.
May the hinges of our friendship never grow rusty
Old Irish Blessing
