Golden Birthday-Golden Boys

Kavian and Calvin
MATT 18:4  Therefore, whoever humbles himself
like this child is the greatest in the
kingdom of heaven.
5"And whoever welcomes a little child
like this in my name welcomes me."

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me,
and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven
belongs to such as these."
Do you KNOW what miracles you are?
Do you KNOW how much your Grandma loves you?
Do you KNOW how happy you make me?

5 years ago, November 5th, I was saying goodbye to Mom-and saying hello to you two. Mom loved babies so much. She loved you from the moment she met you, 1 day old, just a bit over 2 lbs. apiece, there in the ICU, she said, "They look good"!!! We discussed your progress each time we were together. She celebrated each ounce with me. She celebrated you with me and FOR me! Thirteen weeks we watched and waited while you were in the hospital. Those 13 weeks I shared you with your great grandma. She said, "Life goes on"...and so it does.

You came home the end of January.
She went home February 3rd.

Your mama worked so hard to save you-to give you life.
Thank you Brittany and Brandon for this gift.

Two faces to wash and four dirty hands,
Two insistent voices making demands,
Twice as much crying when things go wrong,
Then four eyes closing with slumber song.
Twice as many garments blowing on the line.
Two cherubs in the go cart, soaking up sunshine.
Work I do for twins naturally comes double,
But four arms to hug me repay all my trouble!

-Azalete Bolger Wells

I am not sure what I did to have God smile on me this much but "when it comes to blessings, I'm richer than most."
I love you forever! Grandma Carol
