HouStoN We HaVe a PrObLeM...

Hello there my wonderful fellow bloggers!!! Thank you so much for keeping me and my family in your thoughts and prayers through this difficult time..I can feel the love from all of you with all the wonderful comments you left me..truly you have touched my heart more then you know..and my family appreciates it too.;)I am flying out on June 26th and the funeral is tuesday..all of us kids are standing up and sharing our thoughts and funny stories/memories about our mom..I am just hoping I don't lose it on the spot or clam up..I don't like public speaking..never have..and this is an emotional time for hoping I can do..infact..keep us in your prayers that we can all do this.:) I will be back on July 1st..I miss my mom and the thought of never speaking to her again is very hard..but I know she is truly happy and at peace and I know I will see her again that brings me some peace..
Okay onto a brighter subject..this little one above has certainly stolen our hearts..she is just so much fun to be around..a total character..she is into everything..Okay for the title in the post..we have decided to change her name as hubby just didn't like Thelma..I do..but I want us both to be I talked to my little sister and she didn't like Thelma either..I thought she would..she mentioned Lucy there you have it folks..she is offically Lucy Lou Cooper:)
(above on my lap taking a siesta)
the funny thing about her name is Hubby comes home and talks like Ricky Ricardo and says: Lucy I'm home!!! so it she is bonding with the dad man..oh don't you just want to kiss those baby girl toes..

she was tuckered out..
I love this one too.;)
playing with my flip flops..she loves to play in the curtains, shoes, crawls in and out of everything..if she can get in..she does..
no she isn't passed
here she is in her new bed sound asleep..(she is there right now)..and the funny thing is she has slept every where the others usually sleep..she loves to give kisses and bites..a true little snuggler..she falls asleep at night on my chest..then when I turn over I put her next to me..
This was taken this morning..she decided to explor the garbage can..she got in and out of it..she is a little monkey.:)
this was also taken this morning.sitting on my lap surfing the net, checking emails etc..I will certainly miss her while I am gone as we are still hopefully hubby will pick up where I have left off so she doesn't get lonely..she has her 1st appt today for her free baby exam..thats in 1-1/2 I best get off of here and go eat and get ready.;) thank you again for the wonderful friendship you offer me and taking the time to leave me comments..I really appreciate this..Take care and I am hoping to be back tomorrow..:)(((((HUGS to you all)))))))


  1. I'm so glad you feel up to blogging. Always remember that your Mom will always be with you. I feel my Dad watching over us all the time. That little Lucy girl is certainly a doll. Every picture is so cute I just want to kiss her little face.

  2. Now that is a name!
    Lucy! You got some splainin' to do!
    She a delightful diversion.
    You have enough courage to speak in your Mom's behalf. Just decide and go for it! She will be smiling down on you with pride.
    Travel safe. Keep your chin up. Smile when you can...
    Big ((()))s,

  3. Lucy Lou is precious! Continued prayers for you and your family.

  4. I am not one to speak in public either. I spoke at both my Gram & Paps services. I believe God gave me the words (I wrote them down before the services) At first I was very nerves but I believe God gave me the strength as He will you also. Prayers & Blessings!

    Thank you for your kind words. They mean alot.

  5. Hi Gina,

    P.s. Lucy is just adorable.

  14. Oh Gina my dear Blog Friend I am so sorry to hear of your Loss..Seems the good Lord Sent Miss Lucy Lou to you just when you needed her most to give you comfort and joy in a time that is the hardest for all of us. Each of us are called home to be with our father in heaven. It was your moms blessing to go home and into his loving care. It's hard for those left behind to pick up the pieces and go on, but Your mom will forever be in your heart.. all you have to do is close your eyes and see her and talk to her and hold her memory close.
    Know this when you speak... god will give you the strength to say all the wonderful things you want to share with your mom and those here. Her love is your strength for nothing can change a mothers love.
    Travel Safe celebrate your mothers passage into the arms of our Father in heaven where she can glory in all that is good!!

    Hugs and prayers are with you...
