Good And Bad News

Well, the good news is that I was able to finish the remaining requests that I have. The bad news is that it wasn't how I wanted to. I have been very sick this week due to a lovely flu that my daughter brought home from school. While I was sick, my husband went to do some work at the old house. He was repainting the walls and laying new carpet. Well, he got really energetic and cut the grass too. This was something that was going to have to be done since we were going to have to give the house back, but I didn't want him to do it yet! He didn't know that I still had requests to fill and that I still needed that grass. So I had to figure out a new plan for Micah's newest little friends. I was able to find a small patch of grass in the back of our new back yard that would work just fine. It is pretty beat up from the winter weather and no care at all, but I found some nice blades to put the names on. This grass is a very different grass from our old grass. It is furry and is easily maneuvered. At first I didn't like that it was furry because you can see all the little hairs in the photos, but once I thought about it a little more the tiny hairs reminded me of all the tiny hairs that cover the body of a newborn baby. It seemed sort of sweet so I decided that I like the little hairs. I really love that I can move it however I want and make it lay flat. It really makes photographing and writing easier. An added bonus is that the blades are much wider too. I absolutely love this because it was so hard to write legibly on the skinny blades and to get the camera to focus that close was nearly impossible. I am not sure if this grass will be my new patch of grass or not because it is in the kids' play area. I think I may need to plant some grass in another part of our yard where the kids don't play. Also, there isn't much of this grass at all to add more names to. So I must still keep requests closed for now, but at least now Micah's newest little friends have a place to "grow" and "play" together. It is simply beautiful to see all the little names on the blades of grass blowing in the breeze. Please join me in remembering these newest little angels and their families as I post their photos in the next couple of days. I look forward to the time that I can open requests again and remember all of your little angels with you. God bless you all.
