A Quick Post

Just a quick post from Resurrection Sunday.  What a wonderful day!  If not for the cross and the resurrection there would be no hope of heaven.  I am thankful that the tomb is empty and that I serve a risen Savior!

Thought I would share a four generation picture.

Son #2, Granddaughter #1, Me, (Mammi) and my Daddy (Papa/Great Papa)
 I know everyone says Son looks like me, but really he looks like my
youngest brother and my mother.

Seventeen of us joined my daddy at the church he attends along with my two brothers and the majority of their families.  That made 30 from our family all together for church service.  This is the church I grew up in and served as a Sunday School teacher.  (I started teaching when I was in eighth grade!)

Sunday evening we were back attending our own church service.  I enjoy the church I grew up in, but the church where now attend and serve is home!  And home is one of the nicest places there is!

Here I am holding my little sweetie!  Grandbabies are so wonderful!
Makes up for all the hardships of training
and childrearing with my own!

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!!

A Couple of Pictures

I have a couple of pictures to share.  Here is a picture of our newest grandbaby!

Introducing "Mildred Millie Maude".  No, that is NOT her name.  Let's just say when Son #2 and Daughter-in-law #2 decided on a name, before she was born, I would refer to her by her name-to-be.  Not once did anyone ever correct me that I was pronouncing it wrong until about 5 days before she was born.  Dear Son asked me to repeat  her name, not once, not twice, but three times before I realized he was "making fun" of the way I was pronouncing the name. He is not the only one who poked fun at me.  I guess I put the emphasis on the wrong syllable!  So, this ol' Mammi decided to come up with a name until I can either take speech lessons and learn to pronounce it, or a nick name!  {just a side note, Son is NOT impressed with my "name" for her.  oh well, life goes on!}

Here is a picture of 8 of our nesters, and "guard" dog, Lucy.  This was taken last night, October…
