It’s my happy day for two reasons……@absltmom

Cute quote for twins and parents of the baby

Well today and more to the point Thursday were very happy days for me. My husband and I became grandparents for the fifth and sixth times as our twin grandchildren were born on Thursday. It is always such a thrill and a miracle to welcome a baby into the family, but to welcome two was beautiful and a gift from God. The babies, a boy Miles, and a girl, Madison, came into this world weighing five pounds and five pounds eleven ounces. They are beautiful children so welcomed by not only us but the entire family and friends. Mother, Father, brother, and the grandparents are all doing well. One often forgets, because time passes so quickly, the joy of holding a newborn child in your arms, and now I have that feeling times two. I want to hold onto that for as long as I can.

Thought of the Jay!: Happy 1st Anniversary!

The other event in my life, not quite as memorable as our twins of course, was the fact that I have been blogging for a year. I was inspired by my dear friend, Jennifer, another Southern girl, who started blogging a bit before me. She encouraged me to take a chance and I have so enjoyed the experience not to mention the wonderful people I have “met” along the way. Add to that, I have a wonderful reading partner, Jan, who, even though we live miles apart, is a fantastic sounding board not only for all things book related, but also as a dear confidant. (plus also being grandmothers to recently born twins). I have certainly come out a winner in all of this.

So thank you dear friends for the happiness of not only seeing your reviews, but the ability to share something we all love to do…reading books!

    1. Absolutely right, Jan! We are super fortunate to have these wonderful families that continue to give us love and happiness. And the double births we both have had is truly a blessing from God.

      We have read some really good books and not so good, but it has been a wonderful experience sharing not only our love for reading but also our family and our thoughts. Here’s to many more years of friendship and reading!

    1. Thanks so much, Jennifer! Yes,my reading and book blogging has diminished recently, but all for a wonderful reason. Hard for me to believe, but there have been days where I didn’t read a single word.

      As I said you have been my inspiration about starting a blog. I might be somewhat remiss on responding, but know I do read all of the blogs and so appreciate all the books I am looking forward to reading because of you.


  6. Aww thats wonderful Marialyce! So much happiness in your life. ❤ Twins, oh my!! I know Jan has some recent twins too. We have one set in my family on my hubby's side. Cute and Busy!
