I Have Such Exciting News to Share!!!

Hello, Dear Ones!! Oh, I'm so excited and just have to share some very special news with you today! My Alaskan cruise post will just have to wait!! This is so exciting I'm just about to pop!!

Our Dear Daughter and son-in-law joined us on our cruise, but before we sailed we ate dinner with them at their home. After dinner we were handed a sweet little card with a paper folded up in it. I read the card and it was darling. Then...then I unfolded the paper...and guess what it was?

Do you have any idea why we look so happy in this picture? Can you see where my Darling Daughter's precious hand is resting?
Have you guessed yet? Yes! Yes!! Yes!!! I'm going to be a grandmother!! I'm so excited and couldn't wait to tell you Dear Ones! I went almost hysterical when I saw this...

Meet my grandbaby!! This is the first ultra sound...
This is the second ultra sound - a week apart. In this picture the doctor said the baby was stretching! Isn't this just the sweetest!!! My unborn grandbaby has just snapped for us!! Woo Hooness!!

Oh, we are so thrilled. You all know we don't have any grandchildren and I have oohed and ahed over yours and now it's my turn. Hallelujah!!

I would like to ask you all to keep my daughter and our grandbaby to be in your prayers for a happy, wonderful and healthy pregnancy! I'm going to be a grandmother!!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~


Before you had a name or opened up your eyes
Or anyone could recognize your face.
You were being formed so delicate in size
Secluded in God's safe and hidden place.

With your little tiny hands and little tiny feet
And little eyes that shimmer like a pearl
He breathed in you a song and to make it all complete
He brought the masterpiece into the world.

You are a masterpiece
A new creation He has formed
And you're as soft and fresh as a snowy winter morn.
And I'm so glad that God has given you to me
Little Lamb of God, you are a masterpiece.
And now you're growing up your life's a miracle
Everytime I look at you I stand in awe
Because I see in you a reflection of me
And you'll always be my little lamb from God

And as your life goes on each day
How I pray that you will see
Just how much your life has meant to me.

And I'm so proud of you
What else is there to say?
Just be the masterpiece He created you to be.
~sung by Sandi Patti, Mr. Precious and Me!!

  27. Well, Sheila, congratulations to you, Mr. P. and the whole family. I'm telling you that you are in for an unbelievable journey.

It's a whole different relationship to cherish. Thanks for always commenting about how adorable my grandkids are -- now it's my turn. Your little blob on the ultra sound is a "sweetie"!! With you as a grandma, how could it be anything else?? Enjoy the ride. Sally

  60. Hi Shelia,

    Congratulations! I can understand your excitement-this is great news.
    Take care,


  61. Congratulations! this is wonderful news....thanks for sharing...Pat H

  62. Hi Shelia!!! How could you wait this long to tell us!! *tigggght hugs*. I know you have wanted to be a grandmother for the whole time I've known you here..*s*..and now you will be one. What a blessing. I am so very happy for you all...truly..*hugs*.
    When will the little one be born? Oh Sheilia looking at that ultrasound I'd say that baby looks just like you....
    Wonderful...have a blessed day.

  63. Woot!! Yay, Shelia, I am so thrilled to hear your news! That is just wonderful, can't wait to see all the snaps!

  64. Hi Sheila,

  65. Miss Sheila,
    I am soooo very happy for you....what a very special blessing coming your way!

  66. OH MY WORD Shelia.. I'm so excited for you. You will be the BESTEST grandma in the world.
    Love to you and your precious daughter and son in law.
    I thought of you several times on our trip to N.Y. My BFF and I took pictures in Tiffany's . I will send them soon. I'm off to visit my beautiful 90 year young mom 8 hours away.
    See you soon
    Love Claudie

  67. I'm very happy for you! Oh, the joy that will fill your life is indescribable!
    I truly believe there is not a nicer word in all of the English language than 'grandmother'.
    And you will see that there is no word in the English language that describes what you feel for your grandchild. It is so much more than mere 'love'. I always tell my grandchildren, "I MORE than love you." I did a whole post on it in my personal blog earlier this year.
    Joy To All!,

  68. Congratulations! That's big news! For a little inspiration on this life-changing event, I invite you to check out this short video -- -- about the aha moment of a fellow new grandma. Hope you enjoy it.


  69. Hi Shelia,
    I don't have a blog, but I so much enjoy reading your writing, and your pictures are beautiful. You seem to enjoy life and have a good time doing it. My kind of folks! God put us on this earth to be happy and sing his praises.
    It's because of folks like you that I hope to meet through blogging, that I hope I can retire in a year or so and can join the world of blogging. You all sound like the nicest people.
    Congratulations on your great news! By reading your posts, I know you're going to be a wonderful grandmother and are going to have more joy than you can imagine. I'll keep your family in my prayers and will be watching for updates.
    Debbie from Bham, AL

  70. Let me add my congratulations to everybody else's Shelia--that's fabulous news! You are going to be a terrific grandma!

    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  72. Congratulations Shelia:

    What wonderful news and you are going to love being a grandmother. When I visit I only do it once a week so I can visit everyone so I also wanted to add how nice to go to Alaska and your table scape was so pretty. Love the milk glass.

    The Raggedy Girl

  73. Hallelujah!!!! There's nothing better. Nothing.
    Someone told me that becoming a grandmom filled an empty space inside that you didn't even know was there...
    After my Ellie was born I found it to be true...She's the light in my life.
    Hugs to you Sheila and warm congrats
    All Things Heart and Home
