How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! Romans 10:15

I want to tell you a bit about my sweet youngest daughter. First I want to say how BLESSED I am to be the Mom to 4 WONDERFUL (grown or mostly grown) children. I am proud of each of them -- they are remarkable people and I am always in awe that God trusted me with raising them!

Youngest daughter reminds me a lot of myself at her age (17) -- she is very passionate -- and loyal and so ready to push her sleeves up when she is needed. She has been a stanch pro-life advocate since she was old enough to understand what that was and all about. This was a position that really was tested for her last fall when a dear person in her life decided to take his own life. Recently, she befriended a young woman that she works with. This young woman, B., was expecting a baby and had made the very brave but heart wrenching decision to give her baby up for adoption. Daughter decided that she needed to be there for B. and she was and still is. B.'s baby girl was born last week. When there was no one else to be in L&D with B., daughter was. When baby spent the night in a room at the hospital with her adoptive parents, daughter stayed all night with B. She has made sure that any physical need B. had this last week was met and has spent many hours visiting with her. This afternoon I mentioned to daughter how proud I was of her -- she just brushed me off and said, *Mom, it is important that my FAITH HAS FEET*!! I LOVE THAT GIRL!! Mental note to self -- give your faith feet as often as possible!
