Today is our boy's birthday! Reb is 11 years old! 11 years ago today our first (and only) son was born. He is a joy and a delight to our family. He has come to the place in his life where he lives and breathes baseball. We are so proud of him! He is playing for the Morgantown Angels this year. If you'd like to show your team spirit, come and join us this May to root on our home team. Go Angels!
Today would have been my Mamaw's 91st birthday. I came across this poem the other day and I want to post it in honor of her. She has been gone for over 11 years, yet she is still greatly missed. Her laugh was so contagious, and her smile could lighten any room. Home was her favorite place to be. She loved her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren with her whole heart. She was so very dear to me, and I love her so much.
She Always Made Home Happy
In an old church-yard stood a stone Weather-marked and stained; The hand of time had crumbled it, So only part remained. Upon one side I could just trace "In memory of our mother"; An epitaph which spoke of home Was chiseled on the other.
I've gazed on monuments of fame, High towering to the skies; I've seen the sculptured marble stone Where a great hero lies; But by this epitaph I paused And read it o'er and o'er, For I had never seen inscribed Such words as these before.
"She always made home happy." What a noble record left; A legacy of memory sweet To those she loved bereft; And what a testimony given By those who knew her best, Engraven on this plain rude stone That marked their mother's rest.
So then was stilled her weary heart, Folded her hands so white, And she was carried from the home She'd always made so bright. Her children raised a monument That money could not buy, As witness of a noble life, Whose record is on high.
A noble life, but written not In any book of fame; Among the list of noted ones None ever saw her name; For only her own household knew The victories she had won, And none but they could testify How well her work was done.

Another January birthday has come to our house. Katie is 14 years old today! She keeps growing by leaps and bounds. She is now taller than her 2 older sisters (the ones that are still at home) and she is proud of it! She loves to keep everyone smiling...smiling is her favorite. :) Although she is getting older, she is still young at heart and I love her for that.
