A Little Product Review

I do not normally reveiw products.  But sometimes you come across something you absolutely love and just have to share it!  Like Stampin' Up!  Love it, the best!  Sorry, but this review is not about SU!  I'll save that for another time!

This is a negative review!  Can opener!!!!  Ugh!  I think that has to be the MOST frustrating part of meal preparation if opening a can.  My 'best' can opener that came from "the kitchen store that comes to your door", gave up the ghost about 2 months ago.  So I settled for one of the shelf at the big "W" super center.  It cost about $3 and I got about 7 weeks use out of it.  It 'quit' working while opening a can while preparing supper. (go figure)  So a trip to the neighbor's home to open the can. 

I purchased a new opener at the Super "T" store.  My gut told me NOT to buy the "Chef Mate" opener.  It was $2 and since we were between pay checks I thougt it would last a week!  WRONG!  One can!  That's it!  One can!  So dear neighbor let us use her electric opener again!  And then again the next night!!!! 

Last night I went back to the Super "T" store and bought a "Kitchen Aid" for nine dollars.  I really rather have one like the original one I had, but this was a needed item now!  So, I will see just how this $9 can opener last.

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!

Graduation 2017 Post

Finally, here are pictures from Son #6 and Daughter #5's graduation.  I finally figured out what I was doing wrong downloading pictures!!

They Said "I Do" and Here We Grow Again!!

"I do!"  Lovely words.  Son #4 and Bride were married on the 31st of March.  After weeks of planning they are finally married and home from their honeymoon!  (pictures to follow soon)   We are pleased to have a new daughter in the family!

Speaking of new...yes, a new babe is growing...Daughter #1 and Son-in-love #1 are expecting their second child in the fall!  Grandson E told us!  At first we just looked at him, dead silence in the room, and looked at his momma...and she was smiling!  YAY!  Our "grand" total will be 11 come fall!!!!!!

Soon we will meet Granddaughter E...!  Eight weeks until her due date...but will probably meet her in the next few weeks!  Everyday in the womb is a day of victory!

That's all for now!  I have had to update this about 3 times!  It has been in my "save" for several weeks!  As soon as I get a few minutes of free time I will be back!
