Thoughts on 2020

I kind of think that most everyone will be reviewing this year in their minds, with family, and with friends, "Never thought we would see a year like we did this year."  Will we even notice when 2021 rings in a new year?  Or will we ring in 2021 with hopes that life will balance out and the virus will be only a memory?

I feel like the year has just been one blur of events.  It seems like yesterday our youngest grand was born, but she will be one in February.  Our youngest just turned sixteen...seems like she was just four years old just a few days ago!  Dad will soon be gone 5 months, and Mom has been gone just nine years.  Birthday parties became birthday parades, visiting family became a drive by visit.  We saw some family on a day to day basis....because you cannot babysit and social distance.  

As the year comes to a close and a new year draws near, one thing has remained the same....God.  He is still on His throne, not surprised by any of the events that have taken place.  Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever~~Hebrews 13:8.  Even though I cannot see the big picture in 2020 or any year past or future, I know that that He is always good!

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! My mother and her mo

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 tak
