    Week of November 11th

    This past Friday I was in awe.  I did not know what to say.  As you know, I try to celebrate each birthday at some point.  Never-ever have I thought about the children doing something for me.  Wow!  Well, Gracie made me a banana cake.  She even had candles.  It was precious…they did the birthday song and all that goes with it.  It was wonderful!!! I know you all have your hands full with being moms and raising these wonderful children…plus all the other things you do…you all have more than one hat.   I know you go to bed some nights thinking did I get anything across to her…
