Grammy and Khloe Day One ~

Went to bed excited last night thinking about my first full day with my little Khloe
yet at the same time,
feeling sad for my DIL Katie knowing how difficult it is on that
first day back to work to part with your baby.

This mornings read;
She made me promise not to cry until after she left.
She gave me my instructions for the day
I offered to take a photo of her with Khloe.
The answer was yes to me as I heard her say, 
"lets take a photo on Mommy's first day back to work."

She handed Khloe to me (with a tear on her face) and headed for the door.
I wanted to say, I meant to say, "have a great day and don't worry"...
the words wouldn't come without the risk of me crying for her
but I promised.
All I could get out was, " bye "....

As she drove away our Khloe got an extra long hug.
My thoughts then turned to nothing but Khloe.

She isn't usually up this early....
as the photo below shows,
"can you please just put me down to sleep now".

Down she went and fell fast asleep.......
for 3 1/2 hours.

Woke up happy as a clam !

After several photographs it was time to tune in to Baby Einstein.
Today we were learning to count to five in
Spanish, Italian and Mandarin.
It's gonna take some practice.........

We had our lunch and then had a good hour or so of playing!

I'm fairly sure Khloe knows what to do when she see's the camera....its as if
she were used to it :-)

It's been a great day,
this is what echos from my heart today......

Is She Cute or What?

So, it's possible I have said it before but seriously, she is so cute :-)
Khloe's Grampy put together her new chair today....I think she liked it!

Always a fashion statement to be made.

 Taking a snooze on Grammy's couch.

 Khloe and her Grandma Kaiser

She is happy to have some time with her Grandma Kaiser,
safe to say Grandma Kaiser feels the same!

This little one is not lacking for love
this is what echos from my heart today....

Promises in December and Always ~

"Let God's promises shine on your problems"

                                    ~ Corrie Ten Boom

As we begin the month of December I thought it would be a good reminder
to us all
  that we can rely on the promises of God.
  December, a month and a season
that often times can become difficult, 
often times overwhelming.

For many it's the thoughts of those who are no longer living
among us. 
No longer part of our Christmas traditions.
No longer present to hug and hold on to.
Oh how we miss them.

Sometimes it's our current situation.

Financial issues, especially in a world that 
makes this time about gifts.
It's about time with family and friends.
friends, the Gift is Jesus....

If its a relationship issue,
He never leaves us, He wants
nothing more than a relationship with us.

Health issues of our own, or
genuine concern for another during this time is hard.

The worst, loneliness...
In fact, we can feel alone in any of those situations,
even if we aren't
alone at all.

My hope is as we head into the month of December that all of you will be 
reminded of His promises daily.
Maybe someone around you doesn't know of His promises.
Maybe, we need to be sure they do.

Turn first to Him in every situation.
We are never alone if we are in relationship with Him.

I'm preparing by reading up on those very promises of His.
His promise to be there in every situation.


This is what echos from my heart today..........
