Double Birthday

Today is a double birthday in our home.  Our youngest son, Son #7, turns eleven today!  We refer to this as the "railroad track birthday".  The saying comes from our oldest son as he was turning eleven.  He thought the number "11" looked like the rails of the train track! (Oh the sweet memories!)

Son #7 has been so excited for his birthday that he went to bed at 8:30 last night so his birthday would come sooner!  When I went in to pray with him he had the biggest smile on his face.  A couple hours later when I went in to pray with Son # 6, the smile was still on his face while sleeping.  So precious!

Today also happens to be my birthday!  Son #7 happens to be the best present a momma could ask for on her birthday!  He was born on my 39th birthday, so if my math is correct that would make me fifty!!!  Fifty is only an number, although Daughter #1 reminds me it is half of a century!

 
HAPPY 11th BIRTHDAY SON!
WE LOVE YOU AND PRAY
THAT THIS IS A WONDERFUL
DAY FOR YOU!
XOXO
LOVE, DADDY AND MOMMA

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…
