Personal Post: Meet Ruby

Those who have read this blog for some time will be aware that I don't make it a habit to share personal information with my readers.  My sole purpose is to share coupon information to help you save money while shopping local and online merchants.

My loyal readers will have noticed the absence of posts recently (this last week most significantly).  This little angel is the reason:
Meet our newest grand-daughter, Ruby.  She was born four months early on 11/12/11 and weighed just 1 pound 3.8 ounces.  She was 11-1/4 inches long.  We've just returned from a visit with her and our son and daughter-in-law where we were able to kiss her forehead.  She is now 2 pounds 10 ounces, 14 inches long!  Many prayers have been answered and miracles abound in and around her.  She continues to beat the odds.  NICU nurses say she is 'feisty'.  She has shown a strong will to be a part of our family.  She will need that will to live combined with the constant prayers of family and friends as she works to overcome the many challenges ahead.  There is no doubt in our minds that she will succeed to grow in strength and stature.  She is my hero in combination with her parents who have shown an inordinate amount of faith and love.

I know you will understand when I am absent from home and unable to post.  When we visit with this family, they are our single focus.  This blog is a one-woman show!  Thank you, friends, for your continued support and prayers on our behalf.
