i am so in love.
i have a new niece.
meet roslyn morley joy barclay.
i was there, with my mom and my little sister, while marie, my sister-in-law, was in surgery on friday. my brother, tommy, was racing back and forth, updating us on her progress while simultaneously trying to check on marie and text everyone else. it was so sweet. he is smitten just like the rest of us.
we're grateful for a healthy baby and a healthy mama. marie's still in a lot of pain, so if you would pray for a quick recovery we would really appreciate it.
"there is a sweetness, a delicacy, in new life that brings out the best in us...the best in families. a gentle, quiet recognition that we are whole, that we are one, perhaps more whole than we were before, even though we were unaware of any lack prior to this day."
rosie cheeks has made our family whole. and when another little one comes along, or another husband or wife, we'll grow just a bit more and wonder how we ever got along without them.
