Who is Flavia?

 Flavia said:

"Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same."

Today I saw this on a poster, also by Flavia.

"It's difficult to hold on sometimes, 
but someday beyond our 
tears and all the world's wrongs, 
beyond the clouds
and all we can see and touch, 
there will be love,
compassion, and justice and we will all 

Anyone reading this know anything about "Flavia?"  I looked the name up online and found several references to a Flavia coffee brand, but not much about a writer...Please let me know if you do. Thanks!

Grandbaby Number Six, but who's counting!

Meet our newest grandbaby and second grandaughter!
AP was born Sept. 10 in Alabama 
(one day before we could get there), but we saw her when she was only one day old until she 
was 10 days old, so that was okee dokie. 
Mom, Dad, little brother, and baby are doing super. AP was 6 lbs 3 oz and has surpassed that already at the ripe old age of 13 days today. Notice those cute forehead wrinkles and bright eyes!
 Brother J is very pleased with his new sister. So far so good. He hasn't picked her up by her feet yet, but he has loved on those cute little feet. He's been very interested in AP and so far calls her "beabee". It sounds kind of like "baby" with a southern drawl (to me).
We were all very excited and some of us were just plain worn out after a day or so.
Being a big brother is exhausting!
Sleeping most of the day and playing at night is kind of fun though. Grampy are you sleeping too?
I guess you earned a little shut eye.
What a wonderful ten days we had grandparenting in Alabama. We love you dear little family, and thank God over and over for each of you. Thanks also to all of our wonderful extended family for their generous hospitality and kindnesses to us while we were visiting. We are truly blessed!
