Rain pounding on the metal roof woke me this morning. As I turned to look at the alarm clock and saw only blinking numbers I was reminded that the power had been off during the night for the power company to make some updates.
The rain didn't last long and it had stopped by the time I went out to do the morning chores. I dumped only 4/10ths inch of rain from the gauge so an all night overnight rain that was forecast must have turned into the hard shower this morning.
We got ready and headed out to church.  As we drove down the driveway we spotted a newly born calf  with mama watching over it closely .
I was a greeter at church this morning to begin the service. The sermon continued in Mathew 5 today.After church we had everyone here except Tif who was working  for grilled pork chops, mashed potatoes, green beans,corn, glazed carrots, biscuits for a birthday lunch for daughter who turns 32 today !!
Wow !!! 32 years ago this sweet baby made me a happy mama after I had two boys already I was sure ready for a little girl.
She was a special addition to our family all along as she started school.......
And graduated high school with honors.........
Graduated from UNCA with a Bachelor of Communications degree.......
Worked in TV for several years until finding her true calling as a high school teacher and coach.

Last year she entered into another most important phase of her life as she married Josh in a truly "fairy tale" wedding.
And here she is today about to embark on another very important phase of life called motherhood as she welcomes a little girl into the world in June.
Happy Birthday daughter dear,   we are so proud of you and wish you all the best that life has to give.
A rousing game of baseball started on this nice mid 60's but cloudy day between g-son and his uncle ,#2 son.
And this is a new pouting position for a "tooth cutting" unhappy g-daughter !!!
 After everyone left after a nice visit hubbie and I settled in for some March madness basketball games as we watched South Carolina defeat Florida for their first ever final four appearance and then watched UNC defeat Kentucky to make their 20th final four appearance.
The clouds parted just for the sun to peak out for a few minutes just before sunset this evening.
Just after dark tonight the rain poured down again for the first time since early this morning.
Thankful tonight for a very blessed day and for the love of the family and friends that He has put into my life.
God Bless and Good Night

A belated Happy Birthday to your daughter. She sounds like a beautiful person from the way you "talk" about her. Blessings
