But in spite of it all, life goes on.
We have to keep moving forward. Life insists.
We had a baby shower for my youngest this past weekend.
Happiness reigned, in spite of a few tears.
We are all excited and can't wait for Baby Dale.
My bff knitted her this beautiful little sweater.
Morgan looks like she is going to bawl.
It's ok, it's washable.
In addition to lovely gifts, everyone brought the baby a book, to start her library.
At the last minute, I made this chenille baby blanket for her, and that was her favorite thing of all
the things I made.
Maybe because I have always had a chenille bedspread since I was a little girl.
And now her little girl has one.
The party was held at The Tailored Tea and it was perfect.
My mother has long stopped knitting, but about 10 years ago, when she still had her needles out, she made this sweater, "for when Morgan has a baby".
Perfect color, right on Mom.
This did bring on the tears.
Don't you wonder sometimes how kids think.
I often wish I could still think that way.
Geesh, this is a PARTAY!
A while back, I wanted to show you all a sweater that I was knitting, but I couldn't, since my daughters often check out what I am up to. Hmm.
Here are some shots I took when it was done.
Whenever I think that life is hard, and I am overwhelmed, I think of them.
They are SO worth it.

Morgan on the left, my baby, with her best friend, and my adopted daughter, Jo.
And let's not forget Dale's Daddy.
Life may be hard sometimes, and sad, but it can be so good, your heart feels like it will pound right out of your chest.
Isn't that the truth?
