What Happened...

...to Giving Thanks days fourteen through twenty?  Well, my little family ended up with all my attention and I did not have time to post.  I had four nesters that had the body aches and felt sick to their tummys.  Luckily, only two actually got sick to their tummys and that was only twice. *smile*  It could have been alot worse.

Our church also had a Baptist History Conference last week.  It was so good.  We had a special day for the home school families to meet and had a Bible and history lesson rolled into one!  I am very thankful for my Baptist heritage!  I pray that I never take it for granted!  It was exciting to see how many people who helped shape our great nation were Baptist!

Hubby and I were also able to fix our dryer!!  Thank you You tube video!!!!  Actually all thanks belongs to the Lord!  

Hubby has taken the week off work.  It has been a joy to have him home.  It has been wonderful for his help in school!  I was even to get out of the house for a few hours yesterday for some much needed "me" time!  That sounds so selfish!  But I really needed to recharge my self.

Today we are taking off school, well, its a "home ec" day.  I have been babysitting not only four grandchildren this week, but taking care of a dear friend's four children on Monday and than again today.  (Mommy is on bed rest and that is so hard when you have young ones.  Family and friends are pitching in to help out!)  I have some baking that needs to be done for Thanksgiving and since we have church tonight, it has to be done today!  We will have a total of 30 to feed!  We are doing our usual tradition...FRIED CHICKEN!  (I am so thankful for Kroger's!)  Everything else will be done from scratch, but 100 pieces of chicken would take me 'forever' to do!

Today, I am very thankful that Daughter #1 and grandson are flying home!  It is only a short visit, she has to fly back to NC early Sunday morning.  But she will be moving home December seventh!  I see many more busy days ahead!

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!







MERRY CHRISTMAS 2016

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS!!!!



Life on the Homestead

Life is keeping us busy.  We have had grans over, a couple family dinners, running teens to friends homes or a church activity. We are helping out a family friend who fell and broke a wrist. Now summer is in full swing and warm and humid!  The air conditioner has been doing its best to keep the home comfortable.

Next week our school age kiddos will be leaving for church camp.   That leaves us with the three adult children who still live at home.  This will be a first for us!

This week we have welcomed two, new to us, vehicles and next week two new licensed drivers....

Well.....I have been trying to get some pictures to upload but am not succeeding! Eeerrrrrr!  I will try again later, when I am not so frustrated!  I will try to keep calm and carry on! ;)
