The Next Generation.....

Way back when....
when Hubby and I were first dating, there were children already.
She was 9 years old and he was 5.
He was such a cute little blond boy with a never ending supply of energy and questions.
His excitement at daily living and pure innocence were always infectious for me.
His tender heart; even with the ups and downs of growing up,
it has never lost it's softness.
Now a little over 20 years later....he is the brand new daddy.
He is going to be really good at it too.

Welcome to the world Little Abbigail!
You are such a miracle blessing.
So many doctors said you would have problems but we knew the truth.
We knew that you were resting in God's protective hands the whole time.
Oh how I wish we didn't live 6 hours apart.
I am so looking forward to holding you and whispering God's precious truths in your ear
that you are a princess, a treasure and delight with a purpose and destiny
made special just for you and you alone.

    Bubba was bragging to his boss one day, "You know, I know everyone there is to know. Just name someone, anyone, and I know them."

    Tired of his boasting, his boss called his bluff, "OK, Bubba how about Tom Cruise?"

    "Sure, yes, Tom and I are old friends, and I can prove it." So Bubba and his boss fly out to Hollywood and knock on Tom Cruise's door, and sure enough, Tom Cruise, shouts, "Bubba! Great to see you! You and your friend come right in and join me for lunch!"

    Although impressed, Bubba's boss is still skeptical. After they leave Cruise's house, he tells Bubba that he thinks Bubba's knowing Cruise was just lucky.

    "No, no, just name anyone else," Bubba says.

    "President Clinton," his boss quickly retorts.

    "Yes," Bubba says, "I know him, let's fly out to Washington."

    And off they go. At the White House, Clinton spots Bubba on the tour and motions him and his boss over, saying, "Bubba, what a surprise, I was just on my way to a meeting, but you and your friend come on in and let's have a cup of coffee first and catch up." Well, the boss is very shaken by now, but still not totally convinced.

    After they leave the White house grounds, he expresses his doubts to Bubba, who again implores him to name anyone else.

    "The Pope," his boss replies. "Sure!" says Bubba.

    "My folks are from Poland, and I've known the Pope a long time."

    So off they fly to Rome. Bubba and his boss are assembled with the masses in Vatican Square when Bubba says, "This will never work. I can't catch the Pope's eye among all these people. Tell you what, I know all the guards so let me just go upstairs and I'll come out on the balcony with the Pope." and he disappears into the crowd headed toward the Vatican. Sure enough, half an hour later Bubba emerges with the Pope on the balcony. But by the time Bubba returns, he finds that his boss has had a heart attack and is surrounded by paramedics.

    Working his way to his boss' side, Bubba asks him, "What happened?" His boss looks up and says, "I was doing fine until you and the Pope came out on the balcony and the man next to me said, "Who's that on the balcony with Bubba?"
