I hope you all are having a great holiday season! I definitely had a Thanksgiving to remember, but I’ll post a separate post about that another day. I also realize another Milestone Monday has passed without a post, so I guess my self-fulfilling prophecy came true--“you’ll never actually keep up with something like that every week!” In my slight defense, we haven’t had power the last two Mondays (and most days between for that matter, but who’s counting??), and a post about Monday should obviously happen on Monday, so there’s that.
Beauty died this morning, and we buried her a couple of hours later. As premature as she was, we knew her life expectancy in a country like this was not great, but it still breaks our hearts to lose her. I think we all just thought that after all the times she’s almost died but we’ve been able to revive her, she would make it through this time as well. But this morning she stopped breathing and her tiny little lungs couldn’t do it anymore. She was a blessing, and I’m so thankful she was born. She now has heaven for all of eternity.
|Maybe my favorite picture of Beauty. I love how her legs look in those newborn socks.|
