Our small group welcomed our newest addition this week, Caedmon Michael Rossine. Caedmon and Mom (as well as Dad, Michael) are doing great hopefully coming home today. It’s so neat to see what community and a life intentionally lived with others can bring. Last night standing in the hospital room, I distinctly recall some memories with this precious family–meeting Michael and singing together at Crossroads, getting to know one another better through our small group meetings, celebrating at their wedding last June, supporting one another through tough times, hearing the news of the little one on the way at our Christmas feast…just a few of the many memories.
I have loved journeying with Melissa through her pregnancy as she updated family and friends far away. I love their sweet spirit, the love and energy they have for life and how they embraced the start of their family so openly and with great enthusiasm. Little Caedmon has so many wonderful traits and qualities he’ll gain from Mom and Dad.
It’s so great to be in community with others. We’ve realized over the past year and a half that summers are always a little challenging to keep a small group together with vacations and home renovations and babies. 🙂 We have enjoyed a few outings and a random night getting Cobbler a few weeks ago before the little man arrived (Mel had a cobbler craving so we had to go so she could get the craving fix!)
By the way. If YOU are having a cobbler craving and live in central Kentucky, Darlin’ Jeans Cobbler Cafe in Midway is THE place to be. I’m just sayin’.
It’s wonderful to have friends in the same phase of life that you can connect with and support (as well as have fun with!) The beau and I are so thankful for these couples, the exciting things we’ve already been able to celebrate with one another and the tough times in which life has given us a great safety net to fall into when needed.
So again, welcome little Caedmon! We can’t wait to have you around at smallies once we resume back to normal in the fall! (And we promise Rossines we’ll make sure in our reno of our house it is safe for the little guy!)
