Okay, so this is going to be somewhat of a quickie.  I realized last night that I had not posted anything about the Reba/Kelly Clarkson concert yet!  Duh.  I will try to do that tonight.  No promises though.  Let me just say what an awesome experience!

Yesterday was my birthday and what a great day I had!  Ashley spent most of the day with me which was really nice.  He had flowers sent to me and they were gorgeous.  He bought me a new desk for our office and took me to dinner.  It was so great to get to spend some quality time with him.  We both have been so busy  lately that we don’t see much of each other so any amount of alone time I get with him is priceless. 

We have decided to hold off on the baby making.  Ashley just isn’t ready and I cannot force the issue with him.  We both have to be on the same page before we decide to be parents again.   I was sadden by his news but love him enough to wait until he’s 110% ready. 

Work is still going good.  Stressful but it’s going. 

I posted previously about the passing of Maggie Dowtin and wanted to pass on this information for anyone who wanted it.  Her parents set up a scholarship fund in her name and if you’d like to donate here is the info:

Austin College
Office of Institutional Advancement
Maggie Dowtin Memorial Scholarship Fund
900 North Grand Ave.
Sherman, TX 75090

Okay, I better go as I’m at work.  I will try to get the Reba pics up soon and post about that!  I’ve kind of been in a funk lately so forgive my boring posts. 


Welcome, Deslin Alonzo!

I just received this email from Venus (Parker’s nurse) regarding her grandson.   

 “Delsin Alonzo Jones is here.  He was born Sunday January 13 at 6:52pm and weighed in at 3lbs 12oz.  He is doing well and breathing on his own.”

Thank you to all of you who prayed for this family!  They are very special to us and we are so glad to report that all is well with mom and baby!

Venus’ (Parker’s nurse) daughter went into labor at 28 weeks and is in need of some powerful prayer.  She is pregnant with her first child, a son, named Delsin.  She is currently at UNC Chapel Hill and they are trying to do everything to stop labor and save mom and baby. 

 Please keep this family in your prayers.  They are very special to us! 

Thank you!

Congratulations, Aytekin and Emel!

Our friends from Turkey are expecting in mid-March with a little girl!  They lost their son, Mert, on  July 15 from CDH.  They are such a wonderful family and  we are so excited for them!

 Please say prayers for this family as well!
