DEBI - Just a note to let everyone know that our daughter, Debi, is doing well. Debi had surgery last Tuesday and had her gall bladder taken out. She came home from the hospital on Wednesday. I baby sat our grandson, Alex, so Eddy could be with Debi. They are now back home trying to get back into a routine with the baby.
MOM - My mom is now back at her home for the first time in about 4 weeks. You may recall that she went into the hosptial for compression fractures, had a pace maker put in, had a punctured lung and was really down and out. She spent a week at my sisters and went home yesterday. She is week but coming along.
We pray that everyone stays healthy now!

Today I have had time to reflect on the events of yesterday and how blessed I feel I am. My daughter and son-in-law requested that I be the extra person attending the labor and delivery of my first Grandson. I am reflecting what I gained yesterday....
Besides a beautiful gift from God, Alexander Elias Ruiz, I also was able to be blessed in other ways....
- I was able to feel like I was an integral part of delivering God's gift.
- I was able to see the gift of true love and dedication that my daughter and her husband have for each other.
- I was able to experience the true love that the children have for me.
- I am able to realize that aging is a wonderful gift from God as I am given more blessings along the way.
God was with us in that labor and delivery room and his presence was felt. When I was handed the baby for the first time...maybe 10 minutes after he was born, God led my hands as I didn't plan it, but I made the sign of the cross on his forehead and blessed Alex in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.
What more can I ask for in life..........................

I just wanted to let everyone know that it doesn't look like ALex will be born on his due date which is tomorrow...instead, if he is not born by Monday September 17, 2007 I will be induced at 7:00am. The doctor still thinks that he will come before that, although he has been saying that for two weeks! Eddy and I are extremely excited and just tired of waiting! Hopefully the next time you hear from us there will be pictures of our little boy attached!

15 years ago today we were walking around in a fog. The previous night was spent huddled in a hallway on a soaking wet floor.....praying that we would live through the monster that was trying to destroy the home we had built and lived in for not even a year. No words were spoken during that storm as the winds were deafening but a volley of prayers were aimed at the heavens and our Father to keep our family and friends alive. We prayed for our daughter, Jessie, who was on a trip in the Bahamas and could not get off the island. We feared for her life and later found out that she did not have to experience the wrath of the storm like we did.
In a small hallway, my husband, our son Danny, daughter Debi and friends, Marcie, Phil and their children, Jonathan and Jennifer huddled together in fear.
We survived but we will never forget..................never!!! It was the hardest life lesson.....for the first time in our lives we felt unable to protect our children and that is a parents' job. Hopefully we will never again experience that feeling. We learned the true value of family and friends.
My youngest daughter always said afterward...."Mami....please don't let it rain." How does a mother stop the rain?

My husband has finally finished everything that needed to be done in my new sewing room. Saturday he added shelves to my closet and hung a peg board for my tools, etc. Take a look by going to the link below. It took me two days to stock my closet with the supplies I had in my laundry room/office. It was tiring work and I have decided that I could open my own craft supply/fabric store but hey...."She who dies with the most material wins!" I am a happy woman and I think my husband is happy too because I will be spendingmore time here! He can watch sports all evening long now. The only addition I want to make is a glider chair on the empty wall by the door and then I'll bring in my Ott floor lamp so I can do my hand sewing there. Hope you like it!

A Place for Pins....get the point?
This is a picture of my latest craft project. I really love pins and I could never find the one I wanted to wear or else I didn't know what I had so I decided to do something about it. I took a bulletin board and covered it with batting and muslim. Then I added a Christmas tree in Christmas material for the Christmas pin area, Easter bunny fabric for the Easter and spring pins, Halloween material for the fall and Halloween pins, heart for Valentine's Day and Flag material for patriotic. I also hung three ribbons from the board so that I could put the pins with clips on the back that I couldn't stick through the fabric. I then hung it in my bathroom by my closet.
