Birth Days

     It’s official, I have a nephew!  Yesterday my sister-in-law gave me the best gift ever, a healthy, beautiful baby boy named Cole.  Luckily we hadn’t left for home when we heard the news she was in labor so we headed south to the cities before making a 180 back up to the Gunflint Trail. 

     Like most babies Cole is perfect.  A wee little baby compared to my first born, Abby who arrived almost full grown at 9lbs. 1oz.  Cole came about a month early and tipped the scale at just over 5lbs.  His features are perfect and his long fingers will be perfect for playing piano or throwing a football.

      Today is the birthday of my brother-in-law and his daughter, my niece, Paige.  It seems like yesterday when she was the perfect baby who my sister brought to Easter Church Service when she was just a day old.  That Easter there was alot to celebrate.

     The miracle of birth.  What a wonderous event.  Take time to celebrate the birth of your loved ones, not just on their birth day but every day.  It’s a gift to be grateful for day after day.  Happy Birthday Everyone!
