Giving Thanks...Day Two

I am thankful for a healthy family.  Over the twenty-seven years of parenting, we have seen many childhood illness and survived preterm babies.  Though we have had monitors, oxygen, and life threatening events, we have been blessed with a healthy family.

Today we take Daughter #2 to a specialist in Ohio some testing on her eye.  During a routine eye exam it was discovered she has a "bump" behind the iris of her left eye.  She was referred to another doctor in town for another exam.  Still not being able to determine what it is, we now are making a trip to Ohio for testing.  The doctors feel it is probably nothing to worry about, but we need to know what is going on.

I am confident that no matter the outcome of the test, it will be okay.  God has seen us through many trials and we always come out blessed. 


  1. I have always said that my kids didn't go the doctor, they went to the! I was very blessed with healthy kids, also. We did have issues, my oldest had juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, which is now adult RA, but I believe it led her into her career as a family practice physician.

    I feel the trials we face make us stronger and we can appreciate the good times so much more.

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…
