 Hi friends! Yesterday was our little Flossie's first birthday. Look at the pretty girl she has turned into. 😍 Happy Birthday Flossie❣️ We love you❣️

🌞🐩Now that Henry is 14 years old, his hair grows slower. I know. It does not look like it, but along his back is the main issue. In the winter months I have noticed he is colder, especially at night. He cuddles right up against me in bed. Yes, he sleeps with us in bed. 🥰 I told Brian I wanted to get him a little t-shirt. We found this one at Walmart the other day. PERFECT for our Henry! 
Size XS of course. I only wish he would wear shoes or socks. Ha! His feet are cold. He will not do it. Yes. I tried. 😂
I am still punching away on my intricate, miniature needle punch project for the State Fair. I have 19 leaves done out of 24! Hooray!🎉

My nerve pain is sloooowly settling. I continue to do the PT exercises daily.

He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted.  

                                               Isaiah 53:3-4

We will be going to Mom's for Easter lunch tomorrow. I am taking sweet potatoes by request. 😉 We are missing Jacob and Kristen this year. Jacob simply cannot get off for this weekend. He is at the bottom of the seniority for his department. 

Brian and I are Orthodox Christians, and as such we ourselves are still in Lent. Orthodox Easter is May 5th this year. The reason Orthodox Easter is different is that it always follows Jewish Passover. The reason being, Passover comes first, then Christ dies, then He is Risen. The Orthodox never changed calendars. The Catholic Church switched from the Julian to a Gregorian calendar in 1582. A little history lesson for you today. 

I do wish you all a Blessed Easter my friends. Thank you for stopping by! Enjoy your time with your families. Cherish them!!

Punching and praying,
