Saturday Centus #101 ~ The Birth Announcement

Happy Easter All! Today for Saturday Centus #101, Jenny has given us a prompt of : in your Easter bonnet and as many pictures as we like. Well in these changing times, a lot of down sizing has gone on. People are out of work and taking all kinds of oddball jobs to make ends meet. Why should it be any different in the make-believe world?

And now onto my contribution....


A bundle in your Easter bonnet,
ten little piggy’s wailing a sonnet.
Flowered Chihuahuas pink and frilly……

Delivered our baby, and her name is Lily.

Lily is my only granddaughter. My daughter prayed for 17 years  for a little girl. She was an only child growing up and I think she always wanted a sister. I was so young when my daughter was born, and we were so close,  it was as though we were sisters. After being blessed with four sweet boys, my daughter finally received her little girl. She worried about her age, she worried about genetics as she did with every pregnancy because she was born with Cerebral Palsy and was deaf. She only had to be patient, and trust in the lord,  and oh what blessings she has received!

Please stop by Jenny Matlock's blog for other Easter contributions:  off on my tangent  May you receive and recognise the many blessing in your life!

Happy Easter!~Ames
