Giving Thanks...Day Six

Okay, I had to change the title of my blog yesterday.  I had "Day Three and Four"!  It should have read "Day Five"!  Guess my head was not thinking well!  Mooshie brain!

Today I am thankful for friends!  Long time friends!  I have "old" friends, ones that we go back years!  (never talking about age!)

Here are pictures that I promised when our friends came from Kansas to visit.  They helped Hubby and I in the youth group when Hubby was youth pastor in Kansas.

I was only 19 when Hubby and I got married.  Ed and Karla were his helpers before I became his helpmeet.  (they drove to Indiana for our wedding!)  We had the best of times!  It was nothing for us to pop over to each others homes unannounced, or call and tell the other to put away what ever you made for supper, because they were making enough for the four of us.

Oh the late nights at the Red Coach Inn!  Okay, that sounds just not right!  It was a hotel with a restaurant!  We were always going out for coffee at the restaurant!

Eddie, (oops! I mean, Ed *wink*), Karla, I love you!  Thanks for the visit in September!

Hubby, Ed
Me, Karla

Best of Friends

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!
