A Double Redheader Day

On the morning of March 15 we welcomed Louissa Elaine into our family. Her peach covered little head clued us into her coloring before we knew if she was a she or a he. Her older sister, our first redheaded daughter, excitedly received her as her very own early birthday present. The next day would mark her seventh year.

Needless to say, Mom wasn't baking many cakes that day or the next. So, a dear friend, Gloria Pierce, whipped up a cake and delivered it in timely fashion on the 16th, and we celebrated Danica Lee's seventh birthday while we rejoiced in our brand new baby as well.

This month finds them turning 25 and 18. A dear friend is in town and asked if we could celebrate early so that she could share in the joy. And joy it is! Who wouldn't rejoice at such treasure? Such treasure, indeed.

So tomorrow will find us trimming a table, lighting some candles, wrapping packages, and creating cards that will hopefully convey love and fondness for sisters and daughters who rank above most (doesn't a mother have the right to say that?) It will be a lovely day because of two lovely girls. My Lord is gracious and good.

Happy birthday to them both! How I wish I could be there, but maybe, as you said, when the weather changes. I have always admired the love among your children and I pray that I´d be able to instill that in my own children as they grow. For now, Elena is happy talking to the baby (which I think she thinks it´s the sticking-out belly button!) but I do want to start early! I love you so much!

Birthdays are times to put the brakes on and see what the Lord has done!
Revel in your beautiful red-headed girls.

Happy early Birthday to both of them.
