Amanda Elizabeth Billings

Henry do I look alright? Maybe I should change my dress. The gray one with the little white pearl buttons. Emily please stop worring,you look so beautiful in your new print dress with the tiny flowers and the smocking collar. You really do not think it is too much? No I do not you look wonderful. Henry...... Henry how do I look Victoria asked while tugging at Henry's jacket? Oh my Henry replied ;we are not meeting the Queen,only my Mother. For the final time everyone looks glorious!!!! Okay...... On that note he helped the ladies into the buggy for the trip into town. When they arrived at the church Mrs.Amanda Elizabeth Billings was waiting for them.She had already seated herself in the pew she shared with Henry since he was a boy. Good Morning Mother; Good Morning Henry. Mother I would like to introduce to Emily and her daughter Victoria. Good Morning Dears. Henry has spoken so kindly of you both. Good Morning Mrs. Billings it is a pleasure to meet you, Emily managed to reply. Victoria pushed pass them and looked up at Henry's Mother and said; are you going to be my Grandmother? At that moment time stopped for Emily. Amanda calmly placed the little girl upon her lap and said I belive that to be true. Would you like that my dear.?Emily squeezed her hand and said I think I would.

As the story continues, I am hooked. Mary I am sorry that you couldn't leave a comment on my blog. I checked and it seems that when you left the comment on my devotional, it only registered you as http://daisybouquet/ there was no blogspot.com

I imagine blogger will not honor it unless it has the whole name. I hope this helps in the mystery of why you are unable to leave a comment. But then again with blogger it is a mystery as to why things work or not.

Also when I went to leave you a comment I had a thought. When the google/blogger identity username comes up I have to type in my username and password if I am not signed in on my blog.

Hope this helps. Blessings, Kare
