Posted on the YG, but I have to say again, "CONGRATULATIONS"! I am so happy to hear this from you! Did Duni give you any ideas about court? Can they *squeeze* you in with us and the Coen's :) So fantastic--many prayers answered (I was SO praying that you wouldn't have to endure another long week!).

Hurray!!!! Andrea, were you the mystery number on my phone yesterday (it looked like it might be your number, but since I don't have it memorized I wasn't sure)? I totally missed the call but saw a number on there last night...and was thinking of you, sister!

I'm so happy for you and so thankful we can celebrate this beautiful news this week! AAAHHH!!! This is me screaming...but oh-so misty-eyed & thankful & happy & relieved!

Praying Gabrielle will be home sometime in the coming 4-6 weeks! Yay! I'm just so...beyond...beyond...

Sigh. Can't write.

Love to you & many, many praises to the Lord!

Thank you, my beloved Andrea and Pete, for bringing another exquisite grandchild into my life. I look forward to holding her in my arms, kissing her precious face, and whispering my special Grandma-things in her ear. She will definitely like my dippy side -- I just feel it!
