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!!

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…
