Today, Allyson's Warner Robins Grandma, Ms. Joyce, turned 70.
Ms. Joyce is very special to us. She keeps Allyson a lot. Sometimes with less than a day's notice. She and Mr. Tom look out for us since we're not very close to famly. We know that we can call on them anytime for anything. Having them in our lives is a wonderful blessing to us.
We went to her surprise party today after church. It was at O'Charley's. Mr. Tom was able to pull it off without her knowing. Mr. Tom and Ms. Joyce eat at O'Charley's most Sundays following morning services, but this Sunday a big party showed up to celebrate the special day.
By the way, I got a shock today when I put Allyson down for a nap. She looked up at me and said, "J-E-S-U-S."
I said, "Allyson, did you just spell Jesus?" And, she did it again. I'm so proud my little girl spelled her first word today. I'm even more proud that the first word she learned to spell was the name of our Savior. It makes me feel good that we are reaping the rewards of faithfully taking our daughter to Bible class each week.
It was a wonderful Sunday to go along with our wonderful Saturday. An almost perfect weekend!
Happy Birthday, Ms. Joyce!
