Bits and Pieces

Life has been a bit busy here at home.  We, or should I say "I", am trying to get back to a normal life since Thanksagiving and Mother's death.  I am having a hard time.  I feel like I am just spinning my wheels.

I have a couple of pictures to share.  Here are three of my grandbabies!  The two young men belong to Son #1 and  the young lady belongs to Son #2.

We kept our granddaughter over night Sunday!  (Son #2 took his wife out for her birthday.)  It has been a couple of years since I have  had to get up for middle of night feedings!!!!  It was worth every bit!  Love my grandbabies!

This is what you get to look forward to
if you get your school work done first!

Christmas is right upon us.  We still do not have our tree up or gifts bought.  I know!  I still have one birthday BEFORE Christmas and one to buy for AFTER Christmas. 

Today is a busy day, as if no day is busy in our home.  We are going to church this morning to help serve with a Pasotr's Fellowship.  Every month, the Pastors of like faith from different parts of our state, gather together for a time of encouragement and preaching.  (Let's face it, even our preachers need to be preached to from the Word of God!)  Our church has the blessing of hosting the December meeting.  The morning consist of doughnuts, coffee, milk, and juice.  The noon meal is a big meal.  It is a lot of work, but it is a blessing to be able to go and serve these men.

Hubby has vacation days!  He is off Wednesday, works Thursday, and last day of work is Friday until January third!  Of course school will run as usual through the twenty-first.  It will be nice to have him home and not worry about going anywhere except taking Daughter #2 to work and church!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

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!
