"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"!

a contented grandma speaks


I just dropped my married/mama girl off at the church where she will be standing with her friend as she gets married tomorrow.  I'm listening to the music coming from the guitar and voices that harmonize so beautifully in the other room... the aunties who wait patiently for our sleeping beauty to awaken.  Charlotte is napping and we are in charge.  Grin!

In a few more hours my boy and his girl will arrive with our son-in-law/brother-in-law from over the mountain.  And did I mention that Charlotte is sleeping in the other room?  Did you see my grin?







Blessings, Debbie

  6. Grinning, too. :) It is simply the best, isn't Debbie? Yes it is. We have our Charlotte here with us until at least June when the little family will, Lord willing, be taking up residence in an apartment in town much closer to my son's employer. Will miss them like crazy, but am thankful for this 1st year of the little grandbabe's life that we've been a part of her first 365. Good to hear from you! Blessings, Lisa :)

  20. Hi - you popped into my mind there and I wondered how you were doing. Hope you and your family are well. I imagine Charlotte will have you all wrapped round her little finger now -what fun grandchildren are. xxx

  21. Thought of you this morning, Debbie, and popped in to say "Hi!" and "I miss you" and "I think you owe us another photo of gorgeous Charlotte." Just sayin' ;)

    Hope that all is going well with you and your family! Hugs...

  23. It makes me wonder what happened that you went silent two years ago! Your granddaughter is so adorable and must still be. Perhaps there are grandchildren now. I also thought that you are now thirty-one years married. Any chance of an update?
