If you've followed my blog for any length of time, you'll recognize these adorable faces. In fact, you can read more about them at The Howell Quints. It's an amazing story.......I go and see them every Monday......I am one of many volunteers (maybe the only one who blogs about my blessing!) who have seen these amazing babies grow from 2 and 3 lbs. each to currently crawling and pulling up and learning to eat solid food, etc. To think that some doctors encouraged them to "selectively reduce" the number of babies in Ellen's womb....hmm, which one would NOT make this picture complete???? I shudder at the thought!! I admire all that she went thru to honor the sanctity of life, to put her own health at risk, to honor the gift given them by God. What brave, brave parents! And it's such a blessing to be able to help care for these little people.
Some other news for this Monday I wanted to mention in case anyone else is having this problem, which I'd like to get to the bottom of.......in the case of blogs (some dear blog friends!) whose comment box is listed right underneath the content of the blog, rather than having a link to a different page.....well, I am unable to post a comment on these blogs. It's a relatively new problem, and I wonder if anyone else is experiencing this? They are all blogger blogs, I think, but they don't seem to recognize my blogger account when I try to post a comment. Other blogs that have a "Post a Comment" link to another page, I have no problem with. Some of the blogs I normally read and comment on that I now am unable to are: Lisa at Hospitable Pursuits, Jill at Controlling My Chaos, and New Day, New Season blog....these are just a couple I've noticed. If you have any insight into this, please, please leave a comment......and if I've not been leaving comments on your blogs, it's because I've been prevented. I am still a reader!
I was able last week to get the front yard all into beautiful shape, with no more weeds, some fresh annuals, and some brand spanking new mulch. I'll show pics in a few days. It's so nice to pull into the driveway with a refreshed front yard! Now this week, I hope to tackle the back.......it's a little more intense work. I started last week, and there were actually brambles in some of the flower beds!!! Egads!!! Our property at one time was a large pecan orchard, so it can revert to it's natural overgrown state pretty quickly if left untended.......what can I use to prevent them from coming back, my gardening friends??? So I'll be taming the back yard most of this week. It's a jungle out there! :)
Hope you have a fabulous Monday...I know mine will be filled with happy babies!
