Chit Chat

Okay, it's been a couple of weeks since I have posted anything.  I have really been missing my mother and I have been in "slow-mo".  I am sure as time goes on the ache will lessen...

We are on the final count of school!!!  TEN DAYS LEFT!!!  We are out officially the 18th of May.  I am in so much need of a break.  I do really well until after lunch then I crash!  I am certain it is due to eating carbs.  I love bread, good bread that is, and I love making homemade calzones and pizza's.  I love the fact that for about $17 I can get five pounds of pepperoni at GFS!  LOVE IT!  I really need to change my diet.  But pizza is a weakness, so is fried chicken, pasta, hamburgers,...

I can not believe the price of gas!  It is over $4 a gallon!  Maybe because it is close to the Indy 500 and there has got to be a profit in someone's pocket!  Anyway, a real good friend sent me this cartoon via e-mail!  I am almost thinking it would be the way to go!

Hubby filled up the van yesterday with gas, he found it for $3.759--a real bargin!  It cost him $110 to fill it up--it won't a the week.  (we drive a 15 passenger van with no hopes of downsizing any time soon!)  We really need a second vehicle that is better on gas!

I trust your day is filled with many wonderful things and you are able to enjoy the spring where you live!

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!
