Someone is One Month Old Today

Miss Ellie is one month old today!
She has no idea of the behind-the-scene goings on these days and that is the good news because these words are unfortunately a part of the day as well:
Worry. Fear. Concern. Anxiousness. Adjustment. Some pretty serious words here as we surround Jed with love and care following his recent emergency surgery. Ellie is spending lots of time with her Gramma these days and the out-of-town Grandma is on her way in. Somehow, though, there is much to celebrate as Ellie reaches this milestone of one whole month out in the world. She sleeps as I write this blog, just a few short steps away from me. And I am filled with gratitude for so many reasons. Grateful that Ellie has so many people who already love her so much, grateful for her Daddy getting medical care in time, grateful that Anne had delivered a month ago instead of a day ago, grateful that our City Nest is walkable to the hospital and can serve as a haven for any who are in need of comfort and shelter.
Please keep Ellie's little family in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you.

Thanks so much for the comments on Facebook, everyone. It means so much to have your prayers and support.

Jed was able to walk around a bit last night which was so good to hear!

Oh, we are worried what happened to Jed, you did not say on the blog... but it is good to hear he is feeling better! We will keep him in our thoughts!
And how about Miss Ellie? She is adorable! I cannot believe one month went by! Wow!

Heard from Diann that Jed is home-hurray!!!!

And I must say that Ellie is getting cuter every day.

Our prayers are with you all.
