Mother's Day

So, tomorrow is Mother's Day.  My mom is spending Mother's Day with Jesus.  I have no mother to call and wish a Happy Mother's Day.  That is going to be really hard tomorrow.  But..I spent the day with my little sister!  We had a good time.  We ate at a local chain resturant, went to the educational store, children's resale shop and the a local beauty supply store.  The best part...we remembered Mom!  We smiled and held back tears.  We laughed and tried not to cry...guess we will do that in private when our heads hit the pillow tonight.

Tomorrow I will spend the day at church and then lunch with the majority of my children.  I will be queen for the moment and return to my normal duties by the end of the day.  That's fine with me.  You see, I am the mom.  "Mother of Miracles", "Mean ol' Mom", what have you.  My job title has ups and downs.  I love it, they love it.  We are the perfect fitted pieces to our family puzzle!

To the moms who read this blog, Happy Mother's Day!

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…
