I was just thinking of you this morning as I diverted from my blogging routine in the morning to prepare and open up my GARAGE SALE! Oh Koralee, you have been in my prayers! I have missed you so much, but I understand very clearly about school. Today marks my official start of summer vacation! Last week was finals, but this Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, I had to attend teacher meetings. Our school starts early this year on August 25, so this will be a very fast summer.

Now for YOUR NEWS! My friend, I wish you so much joy as you experience a new phase of life as a grandmother! I know you are going to be so great at it: YOUR BEST SELF!

Missing you, and wishing you a relaxing week. I will watch for the news of the blessed arrival! XOXOXO

Just want to say "Congratulations, Grandma!" There's nothing like it, grandchildren are wonderful. Also want to thank you for your beautiful and inspirational blog, so different from the rest. I love it.

OH my SWEET friend , very soon you are going to experience the magic if life to the Max !
Being a mother is magical . When my SECOND child was on iets way I was not sure how that would be because I loved my first one so much .... We have enough love for more ..... That's for sure .
When my firstborn had experienced the MAGIC of becoming a father himself I saw it in his eyes ......
When you become a grandmother that will be so so much more than about the grandchild ...... It will also be about your daugther being a mom , your huisbrand being a grandfather , your girls being aunts .....
So so much newborn LOVE will come into the world , into your family .......bounding all new wonderful happiness between all of you .
I pray all will be well for all of you my friend .

Koralee~I'm so happy for you! I know the amazing journey you are about to embark on.
At this moment I'm sitting on the train heading home from visiting our grandson. We celebrated his 2nd birthday. The joy he has brought into our life has been amazing!
The first time he utter the words Gamma & Gammpa brought us to tears, we were overwhelmed with emotion.
You will love every minute...and I know you'll embrace this time with open arms.

Sweet wishes,
