I have been thinking so much about the most precious baby girl in the world, baby Abigail. She is the 2 month old daughter of my oldest friend.
  • Baby Abby
  • She was born with a blockage in her intestine and after 2 surgeries that was fixed. She is a very strong little girl. Now she may be facing a blockage in her liver. In researching this condition, which in its most severe form is called biliary atresia, I found this blog, also about an absolutely beautiful girl baby,
  • Team Serena
  • I hope the author (Mira)doesn`t mind, but I have to quote her here as I pray for both of these girls to get better.

    "In the famous questionnaire by Bernard Pivot, famously used by James Lipton, Pivot’s final question is:

    If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

    To that, my answer is:

    “Now Mira, now I’ll tell you what I meant for humankind to learn by allowing children to suffer with illness…”"
    That is exactly what I`d like to hear God say to me too.

    About Me

    My photo
    I'm just a mom in the world. A crunchy Catholic mama of 6 trying to make sense of it all and stay positive. 5 boys here & 1 in heaven. One awesome man who I get to grow old with. I help new moms breastfeed. I`m happy. I don`t go to shows or dance clubs every night but I would if I could. Where`s the nanny? When I see her she`s SO fired! One of my boys is super sweet and sensitive, another one is a holy terror. I learn a ton from all of them daily. Like Nigella says, as any parent of small children knows,there comes a point in the day where you can`t go any further without a drink! I love cocktail hour. I`d like nothing more than to be with my family and some good friends surrounded by tropical plants drinking a margarita listening to the Eagles. I don`t care about trendy, I like that grungy 70`s vibe.
