A New Baby and A Book

I am going to gush. I just thought I should warn you. If I had buttons on my shirt they would be popping off. My oldest daughter, Kessie, just had her forth baby. Susan Patrica came into the world at 9:39 A.M. she is 7 pounds 2 ounces. Kessie said, that she is already making her demands known. I am so thankful that my Grand baby number eight has made it into the world safely I prayed so much last night, I remembered my babies and I thanked God for giving me this incredible life. As a person who has made more mistakes, dropped more balls and made more stupid decisions. I am so thankful that God has taken the crumbs I have offered and has blessed me beyond anything I have ever dreamed or asked. So that brings us to an even number, Ben and Megan, four boys. Kessie and Ryan one boy and three girls. All of them are six and under.


 The next thing I wanted to share. Kessie, has been a writer and artist. She is also a very good mother. Not to mention she cooks everything from scratch. So in those departments she has far surpassed me.

She has spent the last couple of years writing  books. So yesterday while in labor, her book became available to buy on Amazon.http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GS012TE

It is called Storm Chase by K.M. Carroll.  ( A Spacetime Legacy) It is written for 12 years and up.
She worked so hard to get the book ready to go before the baby came and she did it. So she had two babies. I am so proud of her. I loved having my babies and my kids and now, I love watching them do life.
All of them have far surpassed anything I ever dreamed. I am so thankful for God and how He has kept His hand on their lives.


 I told you I was going to gush. I will give you my apologies here. If you had known me when I was young and all of the many ways I messed up my life. You would be in shock too. All I can say, Is God has been far better to me than I have ever deserved.

So I can only give Him the praise and the Glory.

Now, I will cry the rest of the day. That is what I do, now I can fall apart. :)

  5. I think you have been very moderate in your gushing. :-) CONGRATULATIONS! (See me jumping up and down) It makes me very happy that you share as much as you do of your family happiness, and I'm sure I feel similarly to all your readers. And we probably all agree as well about how God rewards us not according to our worthiness or our good deeds but according to His amazing love and compassion. So I am REJOICING with you today!

  6. Kim, that was *beautiful*. Like you, I cannot believe the life with which God has blessed me - it is *nothing* like I deserve.

    I soooo loved hearing you 'gush' ... your love flowed out, and that is always a beautiful thing to hear.

    God bless ALL your grandchildren... what a wonderful blessing. I truly am rejoicing with you :)

  25. Will has had my Kindle and its uncomfortable for me to read on computer or phone so I am snuggled up in a chair catching up on your blog. I bet you did cry all day. I used to do that when you and Jennifer were having your babies. I was so thankful when all of you were safe. Susan is beautiful. I miss you and love you. I will feel better now that I can read your blog. I get really homesick at Thanksgiving.
