Choose Life

H1, H2, & Big Boy Life on the (L)edge

Begun in the aftermath of Katrina, this blog was a way to keep family and friends updated as the family struggled to return to a semblance of normalcy. Now, more than four years later, the memories are still strong, the family is, to some extent, scattered. However, life did go on, and this is our story.

November 25, 2006


This weekend marks the end of the liturgical year. Next Sunday is the 1st Sunday of Advent. It is a time to reflect on how we are living our lives as Christians. It's a time for penitence, and a time for looking forward in anticipation to the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

I pray that during the 4 weeks of Advent leading up to Christmas you will find the peace and joy of Christ in your lives. I pray, too, that throughout the hustle and bustle of the "real" world, you will not be distracted from what truly matters in this, or any, season. May love of God and love of neighbor rank first and second on your Christmas wish list.

Molly Grace was Christened today. We welcome our newest little Christian into the family that is the Church of Christ. She was, and is, a precious little bundle of joy.

It was good to see Heath and Emily with their kids, in from Chattanooga, and Heath's parents Chris and Keith. H1 and DIL1 were headed back to Houston right after the Christening so that H1 could go to work tomorrow, but H2 convinced them to stay one more day. We miss them bunches, so we'll take whatever days we can get.

Although K'Leen had to return to Orlando for a UCF football game, it was truly wonderful to see her over the Thanksgiving holiday. The rest of the family stayed for the Christening. It's been a great visit so far. I wish they could stay a little longer.

Patti and Jerrod put on a grand spread for the post-Christening party. Their friends David and Shauna were there, and Dan and Jack made an appearance as well. BB's friend Mya and her Mom and brother were also in attendance.

KenEllie and Ian, and Matt and Brian rounded out the family members, and Justin and Britney, friends of H2 and Kenny were there as well. All in all it was a well attended affair, and a great way to bring Molly G into the fold. Seeing the whole family together over the last few days has been awesome! Almost like old times... you know... Pre-K...

Please include H2 and Chris, along with a NY friend, Elaine, in your prayers for good health. Also, please pray for June's sister, Madge, who passed recently into the next world and is now at peace. Thanks for all the prayers!!

Take care and God bless!!!

I'm soooo sorry I missed Molly's special day. I hope P&J know that I am truly sorry I missed the special event. This working fool was soooooo exhausted and when I got home, I went into a "coma". I will continue to do what I can in order for H2 to have the time to get better. I've missed hangin' with the "H" family.
I send "Happy Get Well" thoughts to H2 everyday ... not sure if they are getting received though.
