What Happened... 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!

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…
