Did someone ask for pictures of Adalina? Oh, please . . don’t twist my arm!
A yawning baby!
This is my current favorite picture of her!
Every time I see that picture, I want to start packing for a trip to Missouri!
Nicole is so good about sending me pictures real often. Every day I’m thankful for that girl! They got some bad news this week. Her mom hadn’t been feeling well, went into the ER with what they thought was appendicitis but in they process, she was diagnosed with colon cancer. They don’t know any details yet and are hoping to find out more on Wednesday. Please say a prayer for her mom and the family. There are two daughters. Nicole’s sister is away at college and I know she’s having a hard time being away and dealing with it.
When Chad went into management with Wal-Mart, I hoped that Nicole would be ok with all the moving that will be required. Moving often is all Chad has ever known but Nicole was born and raised in the same little town . . where her parents, grandparents, aunt, uncle and cousin live. Within two weeks of moving way, they get the news about her mom. Even though they’re only two hours away, their only vehicle is Chad’s truck and with a four month old baby, being any distance from home at a time like this just adds extra heartache and stress. I feel so bad for Nicole. Yesterday when she got the news, she said all she wanted to do was go to bed and cry but Addie wouldn’t go down for a nap and Chad was working his usual 12 – 14 hour day. She’s a strong, smart and level headed young lady so she’ll handle it but I so wish we lived closer so I could be there when she needs a break or dinner cooked, or a shoulder to cry on!
My next scheduled trip is in January but I can go any time they need me to be there so if Nicole truly needs me, I’ll be there in 10 hours!
