Spring into Spring

Anyone else ready to Spring Forward?  Oh my goodness! Just enough nip in the air to feel like an early Spring day. The trees around Georgia are beginning to bud. I've missed my babies so much the past couple of weeks but this afternoon  I feel a little lighter.  It will be Easter weekend before I get to Nashville but I found this sweet little idea to make with the kids. We can go on a scavenger hunt and each Grand can create their own unique design.  I've not done much in my booth for Spring. I had a yard sale and this is how the carport still looks. I may have made $40. Ugh. It was cloudy day so, oh well. I'll price it all and put it in the booth this weekend.  The littles are doing ok. Our youngest GRAND girl, Claire has to wear a patch for a weak eye.  I think she's gonna be fine. She certainly daddy's girl.  She was excited about going to his office.  Our oldest GRAND girl, Cora, made the All-star team in basketball. She's a natural.  She loves to FaceTime!

All Things New

There's a contemporary Christian song that is sounding in my ear right now, All Things New by Big Daddy Weave.  I'm ready for the new. It's been a long winter. It's not been a cold winter here in Middle Georgia-just a long one. I love the cool temps but not the short days. I need the Vitamin D-not the kind that comes in a bottle.  It had been awhile since I've experienced a panic attack like the one I had a few days before Christmas. It was the morning after I had driven 8 hours to get to Nashville. I didn't sleep well. The kids were up early and I had anticipated a day of fun activities. We were going to make ornaments, paint Christmas trees, make and decorate a rice krispee train, bake and decorate cookies. I realized early that I had picked up the wrong bag of art supplies and had left most of my Christmas paint at home. It's crazy how one little thing can send me spiraling when I've pushed myself to the max with little time to rest. I could feel it c

The "All Things"

 Does anyone else look to a new year with a little fear.  Probably not.  I have been overcoming fear, it seems, for all of my life.  Maybe it started when my little brother got killed when I was 14 years old.  Until that time, I believed the verse, "All things work together for good..." to mean that "all things that work together ARE good."  Believe me, I'm not without faith and I've come to understand and appreciate the "all things" because I've seen that evident in my life. It is an evil world.  God is in ultimate control and He is Good.  Today, I'm learning to speak faith over fear!  I've learned that the "all things" do come together and we are made stronger and able to see God for who He is, Jehovah Jireh, Our Provider, Jehovah Rapha, Our Healer... Just today, I learned about the passing of Linda's son.  My heart is so sad in hearing this.  In our blogging world, we come to love each other as family, a relationship th

Christmas and A New Year

I got to Nashville on the 23rd and had lots of special time with all the kids and babies.  We had our Christmas as a family on Christmas Eve. Each family got our individual attention. We made crafts together with these.   And played games with these.  Christmas night we gathered with our best friends, my daughter-in-law's parents. Yes, we are thankful that we get to share our grandchildren.  Then I had a sleepover with these two.  The day I was supposed to go home, I woke up with aches, cough and fever. I tested positive for Covid and had to drive a 7 hour trip by myself. The Mr. had gone home the day before.  A couple of days later, most of the family, extended family and close neighborhood friends that had gone ice skating with our kids came down with it.  I've been recovering and we're all on the mend. This is the second time my daughter has had it, the 4th or 5th quarantine.  It helped that it snowed for them near the end of the quarantine. The kids were climbing the wa

Growing, Going, Gone

Do you ever consider how fast your children grew up? At the time, it seemed that the sleepless nights would last forever and the terrible twos would stay terrible forever, the pre- teens awkwardness and the teenage defiance would never end. And then they turn 16, you give them the keys and they speed off into the world...gone.   I expected that, somewhat, and I even learned to release my children as they grew. What I didn't expect was for the grandkids to go so fast.  2014 our miracle baby arrives. Our Christmas gift from above.  We enjoy the other two for our last Christmas in GA before moving to Tennessee.  2015 we enjoy our first Christmas after moving to Nashville in May.  2016 and we enjoy our first Christmas in our new house.  2017 the last Christmas the three will be the littles.  2018 new babies. 2019 the year before Covid and the last Christmas in our new home.  2020 the Covid Christmas gathering almost didn't happen. The kids considered not getting together. We were g
