A Life of Grace

Our weekend in Portland was spent with an assortment of grandmothers and other relatives from Pat’s side of the family. I feel so grateful that my kids have so very many amazing grandmas, grandpas, and great grandmas. They are each treasures with so much to give and to share with us. Here we are with Pat’s mother and her mother, who’s house we stayed in.

And I love this picture here where I seem to be the calm center of a Sullivan storm. That’s Pat’s father and his father’s mother, plus her new husband. That was the first time in his entire life that he’s held a baby.

Here are the boys with their paternal great grandmother again. That was her first chance to meet Theo.


Theo is at a lovely stage of discovering and enjoying the people around him. I am so happy with how this little set with Pat’s mom turned out. It was hard to pick just 6 pictures out of all of them.



Camille (Pat’s step mother who, true to form, managed to avoid all my picture taking) had her surgery on Friday after we got back from our trip. I pray that the cancer didn’t spread, that she recovers fully, and that she is a part of my family for a long time.
