A Dream In The Making

October 14, 2010

Our friends (and former next-door-neighbors) Eric and Jamie Chappel are in the process of adopting a baby.  We are just thrilled for them; always eager for news updates as their dream of having a child unfolds toward reality.  It just puts a huge smile on my face every time I think about it.  So, I must say, I was very honored — as they begin to ready themselves to bring home baby — to be able to paint something special for them in the nursery.  Eric and Jamie decided on Winnie the Pooh, a personal favorite of mine.  It gave me so much joy to fill the room with those happy images knowing that before too long a much loved, and treasured babe will be laying there looking up at Pooh Bear and friends laughing, and kicking, and blowing bubbles at them.  Is there anything better than that?  I don’t think so!  Plus it was great to get to spend that time visiting with Jamie.  I admit I was a little sad when the project was finished.  But now finished, it represents a tiny piece of the dream becoming real.  A step in the right direction.  What was once just an extra room is now a NURSERY!  What a fortunate child to have such a love-filled home, such love-filled parents ready and waiting for him.
