They Found A Beautiful Way...

I adore this new family picture.

And Parker is getting to look more and more like his daddy every day!

But I have to be honest.

I guess I really didn't think this family of his would ever happen quite so suddenly or in exactly this way. And I'm trying to go back to the place where I was when I very first imagined exactly what or when it would be.

And I'm not sure what I expected. I just love that word... expected...

What I do remember easily enough though is how my hormones would twitch a bit at times and my overies would all but scream out to me "Dagnummit! Don't you dare dig us this grave quite yet!!!" when I would see various and sundry pictures of him, like these...

But, of course, I'm navigating perilously close to off topic here...

So yeah, at risk of being reduntant... I really don't know what I expected. Until now. Because hind site is always 20/20 of course. And I think I can honestly say, now, that this is all really sort of perfect. As David Foster said on the Dr. Phil Show the other day... "They found a beautiful way." And they did.

I can't imagine a human being better suited or deserving to be a daddy. In fact my eyes tear up, and yes my ovaries still twitch, at even the thought of it.

I believe they will be the most wonderful family, even through any of the thicks or thins that may cross their paths which I imagine may be many. Still, I think that baby Parker may just be one of the luckiest little boys ever.

And anyone who doesn't agree with me must not know Clay. Not that I know him that well, per se. But I think I know him, well... enough.

The title of your blog says it all: "They found a beautiful way ..."

Well, not everything, because the photos and Marie's montage provide more of the story and contribute to your thesis that Clay was meant to be father. Though we know less about Jaymes, I think she was also meant to be a mother. And they found a beautiful way.

Sorry I missed your previous blog. The jack-o-lanterns are kewl.

Thank you for your kind remarks in the Veterans Day blog.

Have a great week!
