But I will be sad to leave this great group of girls. And their mothers! That was the best thing about going to dance was getting to talk with all the wonderful mothers! Half were Christian, the other Mormon (so I'd say we were all Christian), and we were of like minds and similar priorities. We enjoyed each other's company so much and helped each other in so many ways. One of my friends there (Dianne) is a L&D nurse at the hospital where I go, and it naturally came up one day that I was 12 weeks pregnant and would hope to see her there in a few months, and we were all so excited! Then the following week I had to tell them that I had lost the baby, and such. Right then and there, they formed a prayer circle around me and prayed for me the way Christians do, with my Mormon sisters right in there too. We are all mothers and we all know the heartache. It was their way of showing love. Even the secretary was in tears!
Wanting to remember this dear time in my daughters life, and continuing with the crazy spending spree, and asked my friend to take some pictures. I realized I hadn't had any professional pictures of Leia done ever. Actually, when you think about it, we save so much money not having to drive to and from school daily, or to buy uniforms and lunch stuff and all the extras that go with attending school, we probably still saved money... Below is one of the professional pictures my friend DeAnn took. They are all so sweet. To see them go here:
And she makes me laugh! A recent quote from her: "Mom, I know why God was mad at Jonah. He didn't want to go to Vinegar."
"Ninevah, Leia. Ninevah."
