Just wanted to give an update on Katie... her water broke this morning. Around 8... she called me at work to come and assist with Kayleigh. I went to her house and was lucky to give her a big hug before she left for the hospital. I spend about an hour with Katie's mom to adjust Kayleigh as her mom was leaving also to assist at the hospital. I drove Kayleigh to Tanya's house as she was going to watch her and make it fun for her to play with Hadley! A few tears at the beginning in the car but all went well!
Hope you have a pain free labor Katie and can't wait to get the phone call for the announcement that 2nd Squires baby arrived to our beautiful world!
Lots of love
I painted this watercolor painting "Looking Up to Old Glory" just days after 9/11/01. I felt scared, anxious for what would come next in our country. My husband was on an aircraft carrier in the Gulf and I had not spoken (really emailed) with him since the morning of 9/11, I watched the news 24 hours a day hoping to catch word of his ship and find out where he was. To this day when I look at this painting and think about our world then, I get so emotional I can't control my tears. On this day, I keep all the families that lost a loved one or dear friend close to my heart -- and will look to Old Glory for comfort. #neverforget
