It's been a long two days.  I woke up with a headache yesterday about 6 AM, and lasted until about 9 PM this evening!  It was a struggle through both days.  I still went on Saturday visitation for church, and both services today.  But hopefully  it is behind me and tomorrow will be better!

I made a real cute card yesterday!   Of course I don't know how to upload a photo of it, so you will have to take my word for it!!!  I had hoped it would help "numb" the pain of the headache, but it didn't. 

Daughter #2 is filling out her info for college next fall.  She was accepted last October, but is filling out emergency numbers, med info, etc.  She is so excited about going!  I just hope she misses me while she is gone!  She says she will, but...  My mother always told me that God gave us children to give them wings, to let them fly. That is exactly what I am doing!  I would not want any of my children feel like they HAD to stay with me forever!

Well, tomorrow is school.  This time I do have my quizzes and test ready for the week!  Now,if I can get laundry caught up tomorrow......

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!



Life on the Homestead

Life is keeping us busy.  We have had grans over, a couple family dinners, running teens to friends homes or a church activity. We are helping out a family friend who fell and broke a wrist. Now summer is in full swing and warm and humid!  The air conditioner has been doing its best to keep the home comfortable.

Next week our school age kiddos will be leaving for church camp.   That leaves us with the three adult children who still live at home.  This will be a first for us!

This week we have welcomed two, new to us, vehicles and next week two new licensed drivers....

Well.....I have been trying to get some pictures to upload but am not succeeding! Eeerrrrrr!  I will try again later, when I am not so frustrated!  I will try to keep calm and carry on! ;)
