Joys & Sorrows

Yesterday our newest family addition was born, a healthy 8 lbs.  2 oz. Zoe Melia Price, 2nd daughter to my 1st born Brandon & his lovely Laura. Carys is a big sister now.

This morning my father passed away rather suddenly from congestive heart failure. A blessing that he didn't have to endure Chemo or Radiation for his lung cancer. We are on our way home to Michigan today, so blogging won't be resumed until after May 9th....see you later, & thanks.

So sorry for the loss of your father, Deb. It's always hard, no matter the circumstances.

I am so glad you also have a new joy in your life.

When God sends us suffering he also sends us blessings...sometimes they are obvious and sometimes a little harder to see.

Safe travels.

Hugs and Sympathy Deb. ( we had a death in our greater family yesterday also. )
How lovely to have a new Grand child. Congratulations. I hope Mum and baby are doing well. (I noticed the Price Surname - that is one of my family names on my late Mum's side of the family. )

I'm so sorry Deb :( My dad died of lung cancer 4 years ago and it is such a slow painful way to go, your dad surely is blessed to go in this way. Take care of yourself and your family.

What a blessing you had the big birthday party for him last year when everyone was able to laugh and enjoy eachother. Our sincere sympathy.

Congratulations on the new granddaughter.

I think Zoe's middle name is Melina because Darian's is Meleah. But it would be cool if they decided to go with Melia instead, then she and Darian would have the same middle name! :-)
