Dear Sawyer Joell~

I get to do labor and delivery with Wrex and Stef when Sawyer is born.  Stefane gave me a little note-taking book for the Birthing Class we took a few Saturdays back.  I didn’t take many notes (I did have 5 babies myself, you know), but there are some.  And I have decided to use the rest of the pages to write advice and parenting encouragement to Stef and Wrex or little notes to Sawyer for reading someday when she is grown.  Plus there are prayers and blessings and silliness, along with little doodles and baby quotes.  Somedays I write quite neatly and others (like this one), not so much.  I consider it the secret code to a treasure…Sawyer Joell will apply herself to learning about her beginnings someday and will have to decipher my code.  And I hope she will discover how much she was loved and highly anticipated before she was born, by 2 incredible parents-to-be.

PS To Sawyer:  And I feel certain I shall break into song, as well, with great joy at your impending  birth.  I’m like that.

  1. Oh, Jeanie Rhoades…what a gift sent straight from heaven you are to me. Thank you…for so much… It’s such an honor when I hear people speak so well of you and I get to say, “I know her, too…and I agree wholeheartedly with what you said.” It happened JUST yesterday, in fact. What a fabulous mom/nonna/adoptive mom/friend/mentor/coach/angel you are… I absolutely can not wait for Miss Sawyer to meet you, because I know she will join the masses who see you, speak your name and smile with giddy glee and admiration because of YOU. I love you!

  2. Good day! This is my first visit to your blog! We are a
    team of volunteers and starting a new project in a community
    in the same niche. Your blog provided us beneficial information to work on. You have done a extraordinary
    job!

  3. I’m extremely inspired together with your writing
    skills as neatly as with the format to your weblog.
    Is this a paid subject matter or did you modify
    it your self? Anyway stay up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to peer a great weblog like this one today..

  4. I think what you published made a bunch of sense. But,
    think about this, suppose you were to write a killer
    headline? I am not saying your content is not good., however what if you added a title that makes people want more?
    I mean Dear Sawyer Joell~ | Jeanie Rhoades // Thought Collage
    is a little boring. You should glance at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create news titles
    to get people interested. You might add a related video or a
    related pic or two to get readers excited about everything’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it might make your blog a little bit more
    interesting.

  5. Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was
    wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from
    someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  6. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
    though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking
    about, why throw away your intelligence on just
    posting videos to your blog when you could be
    giving us something enlightening to read?

  7. I just like the valuable information you provide to
    your articles. I’ll bookmark your weblog and test again here regularly.
    I am relatively sure I’ll be told many new stuff proper here!

    Good luck for the next!

  8. I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I
    never found any interesting article like yours. It is
    pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever
    before.

  9. Thanks for a marvelous posting! I quite enjoyed reading it, you can be a great author.I
    will be sure to bookmark your blog and will eventually come back at some point.
    I want to encourage you to continue your great writing, have a
    nice holiday weekend!

  10. I think this is one of the most significant
    information for me. And i am glad reading your article.
    But want to remark on some general things, The site style is wonderful, the articles is really nice : D.
    Good job, cheers

  11. Appreciating the commitment you put into your site
    and detailed information you present. It’s great to come
    across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same outdated rehashed material.
    Great read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including your
    RSS feeds to my Google account.
