We celebrated my youngest girl’s birthday this week.  Baby Lucy is ONE!

If you want to feel young, get around a baby.  It doesn’t have to be your own of course.  It can be a grandchild, neighbor’s child, baby in the church nursery…just as long as you don’t cling to a perfect stranger’s baby at Target!

There’s nothing like chubby little fingers around your neck and that baby giggle that gurgles and spouts to make you feel incredibly alive.

I’m very thankful to God for giving me the chance to have a baby even as I enter my forties in the next year.  I’ve got to keep young to keep up with her (now and someday!).

By the way, the watermelon in the picture was carved by my talented dad who has recently retired.  He has no watermelon carving training, nor has he been doing it for very long.  Just goes to show you’re never too old to learn a new hobby!
