Last of the October Birthdays

It is hard to believe that Son #5, (child #8) turns seventeen today!  Where does the time go?  It really seems like yesterday that he came into the world.  He has a witty sense of humor and is very loving.

Not long ago he was working on some homework and put on a "thinking cap".  It belongs to Granddaughter J, but that day he got more use out of it than she did!


(soon I will have a post with some past birthday pictures!)


  1. This is what memories are made of...I'm glad you got a photo of him in the 'thinking hat'! Very precious!
    Have a blessed week and Happy Birthday, child #8 and son #5! Stand firm, young man, in the promises of Jesus Christ!

    1. Thanks Jacqueline for the encouraging words for Son #5. I showed him your comment and said, "Awww!"

  2. I hope he had an enjoyable birthday! My name is Heather and I just have a question about your blog! Please email me at Lifesabanquet1(at)gmail(dot)com :-)

    1. Thanks Heather for stopping by! I sent you an email just a few minutes ago!

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!!

Six years ago today my family's heart was broken by the death of my mother.  Today turned happy because Grandbaby number 11 was born!  Grandson W was born at 12:38 pm, weighing 8 pounds 15 ounces, and 22 1/2 inches long!  Daughter #1 and babe are doing well!!!!! (pictures will follow later once the parents have a chance to brag on their own!!!)
