There are times that really thrill your soul, your heart, and your thoughts. The birth of our first grandchild is one of those times. Trinity, Derek, and baby Addison Grace Nichols are doing wonderful. She came into this world at the Women’s Hospital, Tupelo, on Friday, November 7 at 11:56 a.m. This dark haired, round cheeked beauty weighed in at 6 lbs. 8 oz. and 17 ½ inches long.
I now know what others have meant by the word “grand” in the word grandchildren. This birth humbles us to know the goodness of God to my personal family. It also reminds us of the beauty and miracle of birth. It reminds us of how valuable every soul is and how important family is.
Thanks First Baptist Church and friends for helping us rejoice in these days. God is great! So in behalf of Darla and I, Frank and Phyllis Nichols, Uncle Trey, Uncle Kelvin, and the happy parents, God bless you!
