Circle of Life

It has been a week of heartbreaking sadness
 grieving the death of a dear friends husband
and great happiness with the celebrations of
the upcoming arrivals of 2 new baby girls

It's the Circle of Life.

The funeral on Thursday was a bittersweet reminder
of how short life can be and how it is really important
to live each day like it was your last.
It was hard to watch the sadness of the ones
left behind, but uplifting to know that the strong
faith that they have in God will see them thru this.

On the other side of the spectrum I had the great joy
of celebrating the April arrivals of sweet baby girls.

On Saturday one of my jazzercise instructors
taught her last class until after the birth of her baby.
After class we had a little shower for her.

and today I attended the baby shower of a young lady whom
I've had the privilege of watching grow up.
Her mom made some great centerpieces for the shower:
This is a tricycle made of diapers
and receivng blankets
The cake table was decorated with picture frames
that spelled out the baby's name.
These will grace the walls of the nursery.

The baby carriage below was also made of diapers.

And at the end of the shower she passed the
"Grandma to be" banner off to me!
