They Say a Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Our "middle" daughter April who herself will be a mummy in Fall asked me to e-mail her some of her old baby photos. She's going to a baby shower and the hostess "Jolene" is going to do something with them.

Looking at those photos in the album takes both my husband and I back to when it was our turn. When did the time fly by? How could 30+ years go by so darn quickly? If we could relive this time, we would. Fortunately the camera was invented to help us remember.

There is nothing more wonderful than looking at the pictures, capturing the moments in time and memory. Their tender little smiles make us smile to this day.

Now we eagerly look forward to receiving new pictures of our grandchildren. It's our daughters' turn now. We pass the torch to the next generation. Now we know how Pappa and Granny and Oma and Opa must have felt.

(I tried to post some pictures here but failed One of these days I'll succeed. You'll have to take my word for it, they were so cute.)

The Angels had a Terrific Bowling Party This Morning!

Just when you thought you might get a little extra shut-eye, all cozy and comfy under all the covers . . .

The static on my clock radio indicating lighting, a thousand and one, a thousand and two a thousand and three a thousand and four and THUNDER enough to rattle the roof and rain enough to swamp our back 40! To quote an Advent hymn in With One Voice, one of our Lutheran hymnals, My Lord, What a Morning! Let's hope this rain helps the firefire fighters in our Province. And let's further hope it didn't start thousands of new forrest fires. I can't wait to go for a walk in our ravine later on today to see if West Mundy Creek is rushing by!

Happiness Is . . .

Time to sit and enjoy an extra cup of coffee instead of rushing off.

Going for a morning walk with your husband, in less than 100 degree weather.

Finding a DVD to enjoy on a Saturday night, one that will make you laugh.

Finding a rougue branch of a plum tree, ripe for the picking, and finding out how exquisitiely tastey they are.

Visiting your daughter and husband and 5 delightfully active and healthy grandchildren and being smothered with words, sounds, arms and legs and a lap that is way too small!

An e-mail from a happy daughter, ready for a trip to San Fransico.

Life is good. That's what Happiness Is!

Now I can send responses to anyone!

My darling daughter Cathy urged me to start up a site, I really just wanted to respond to babymerriman (sorry if it is mispelled)! Baby Ben is such a cutie-pie.

I am one lucky lady, with 5 beautiful grandchildren and another on the way. Basically I just like to read the blogs, but time will tell how much I will get into it.
