I'm a new granny! Emma Laurel Martineau was born at 6:15 p.m. this evening. She arrived so fast Granny didn't get to see her birth. Why didn't someone warn me that traffic is horrible on a Friday night heading south? Oh well ... it proves that mother can deliver fine without Granny being there!
Well ... I'm just an ordinary granny with 18 beautiful grandkids, 7 fabulous children, and 1 fantastic husband!
My fantastic husband and I met while both serving missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints, in the Gulf States Mission. This mission included Mississippi, Louisiana, part of Tennessee, and most of Arkansas. While in the mission field we were committed to the service of the Lord and of course no dating was involved. But two dates after our missions we were engaged and married two months later. Life has been wonderful with my Lynn!
While raising our 7 children I helped suppliment our income by teaching vocal lessons, babysitting, and doing hair, all in the comfort of my home.
I'm currently employed at World Joy, a nonprofit organization improving health and education in the Atiwa District of Ghana, Africa.
It really IS a wonderful life!
