We have slipped into another month and I am afraid it is going to take wings and fly!  Yes, only four days into the month, but it will be Labor Day before we know it.

Well....this post is a milestone...number 400!  I know my blogging has been lacking.  The past twelve months have been rough, trying and faith stretching.  Today Hubby started a new job.  He has been unemployed since mid-August 2014.  He taught an English class and did a bit of substitute teaching the second semester of the 2014/15 school year at the Christian academy that is a ministry of our church.  His new job...teaching at the Christian academy again!  He is not full-time, but is there for all but one class and homeroom!  It has been an answer to prayer.

I want to share some cards that I  have been working on.  I have heard that I never take pictures of what I create!  That's not totally true, I do take pictures...most of the time.  Okay, some of the time, but I am lousy at posting them!  My computer runs slow and it can be a pain to upload them.  (So, Kathy, these pictures are for you!!!)

The cards were for various celebrations or visiting speakers at our church.  The Spider Man and Captain America were for two grandsons, the "Time to celebrate" was for Daughter #5's 15thbirthday. The card  with the "washi tape" cake was for my father's 86th birthday.  The snow men ornaments and ornament I did with my friend one afternoon last week.  The "hello" with the home I made along with another dear friend and sent it to a new family who recently joined our fellowship!  I know I have some more cards on my camera.  I need to get them onto the computer!  That will give me another excuse to post!!!!  :) I might even try to post some birthday pictures of the nesters!!!!


  1. So excited to see your post! I check in every day :)
    Your cards are beautiful. I feel honored to have received a few from you. So happy to learn that hubby is working again! Hugs to all!

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…
