"BLESS US ALL"

Little tiny twin girls....

We never dreamed there would be TWINS in our family....

Never had been before....

The doctor said " they have to start SOMEWHERE "

;O)

They were so tiny, sweet and as different as DAY and NIGHT....

I almost kissed their little skin off....
These are some precious, sweet," full of wonder "pictures I have hanging in my bath.....

Such sweetness and cute, cute, cute "little" people.......

LITTLE BABIES MAKE THE WORLD GO 'ROUND

I can surely see why little children are favored by GOD


Now, his mom and I thought this little suit was just about the cutest thing, EVER....


His daddy, on the other hand, hoped this was the last time the little fella had to wear that CAP!

LOL *grin*....


I love it! That little mouth was ALWAYS open or grinning.....(my heart is melting, just looking at this picture!)


WESTERN DAY at school....Oh, so handsome...*sigh*

Bless her little heart...no hair for ever so long. You should see the long , blond hair she has NOW!

AND MOVIE STAR LOOKS, FOR SURE


Our little gymnast.....


Even when young, if I tried sitting like this, both legs would fall completely off.....

Amazing picture, hu? Her mom took it at a tumbling meet.......


It's like this BABY DOLL is saying,


"Awh, MAN....I've been here ALL DAY LONG!"



I am pretty sure this picture could have won all kinds of awards...
I mean...REALLY !!!!!


I have a huge one hanging in a bedroom. Our first GRANDSON.......


ahhhh, the look on that little face is worth a thousand words! :) "Be still my heart".....

He is the one on my sidebar...graduating from high school this month
****************************

I have lots and LOTS more pictures but


I KNOW WHEN TO STOP !! lol :)

I know you have some pictures that make your heart sing or giggle each time you see them....

show them to us, if you will.


I would dearly LOVE to see them...

MY BIGGEST BLESSING IS MY FAMILY

AND

I AM SO THANKFUL


HAVE A BLESSED, SAFE AND LOVING SUNDAY

*****************************************************
CHILD PREVENTION AWARENESS

Please say prayers for all our little abused and unloved children AND do what you can when you see or hear of a child being abused

My heart breaks, as I know does yours, at just the thought of someone hurting a little child

I have gotten into trouble several times by interfering in a stranger's life when I witnessed child abuse....

on the street.....

sometime in a store....

a couple of times in cars....

I was told to "mind your own business"
and
told more than once "where to go"....

but I will do it EVERY TIME I see someone mistreat a little one.

IT IS OUR DUTY, RESPONSIBILITY AND OUR DESIRE TO DO ALL WE CAN TO STOP CHILD ABUSE

What a darling family! Just love all those sweet baby pics! Myself, I can never resist a baby and will make faces and coo at any baby I see anywhere. My ex used to think I was nuts, but it was so fun to see those little faces smile and laugh!

Good for you for interfering when you see children abused!!! We need more people like you! You would not believe the horrendous stories of abuse that I hear from my clients. You're an angel for doing something about it. I once had my son's friends all very angry at me because my son told me about his best friend being punched by his father and I called Child Protective Services. The father was arrested and had to take anger management classes. They thought it was none of my business, but any child being abused is my business! Also, I'm a mandated reporter so have to do this. And I never regret it.

What wonderful pictures...

I sure miss the pictures of my kids growing up... We lost most of them in the storm...

There have been so many reports of child abuse in the news in the last year, and every one of them breaks my heart...

iea said...

Just dropped in to see your site and I am so glad I did. Your post is adorable and the grandchildren so sweet. I adore my g-children so much. Your concern about abuse is well founded. We can't imagine how much children are abused. I have a few (thousands) :) well lots, anyway,of photos to share one day.

BJ,

Lovely photos of the babies. I always enjoy seeing them and there can never be too many.

I too have interfered when I saw a child being abused. However, a social worker friend of mine told me never to do it. She said that oftimes the abuser will take it out on the child. Instead, she suggested taking the license number of the car and reporting the abuse to Child Protective Services. I'm not sure which way is correct but we should not tolerate child abuse.

Blessings,
Mary

bj said...

There are many different ideas on how to handle child abuse that you witness...it depends on the situation, I am sure. YOU have to decide what to do...sometimes on the spur of the moment.If it can wait, do notify authorities...if you feel it can't wait, do what is nccessary at the time.

Creating Myself said...

You have beautiful grandchildren...you are indeed, blessed.

Meggie said...

I think every child deserves to be born into a loving home. Unfortunately that doesn't always happen. Isn't it sad?! Your photos are so precious, BJ. It's easy to see that they are very much loved.

Joanne Kennedy said...

Those really are some darling pictures. Thanks for sharing.

Good for you for standing up for the children. Of course someone who picks on children would get mad if someone stood up for them. The cowards don't know how to deal with adults.

Keep stepping in whenever you see anything that is not right. If we had more people like you in the world maybe we wouldn't have so many sad stories about child abuse!

God bless you!
Joanne

I love all those sweet pictures Bj :)

I do the same thing you do, EVERYTIME. Abuse makes me so mad I can't be quiet about it.
