Being a Grandmother

I have the best job

The reward for being a Mom
is that you hopefully get to be a grandmother
By the Grace of God
I get to experience this wonderful Joy
at Christmas time it's magical

Who knew that being a Mom and a Grandmother
would be the best job in the world...

A New Years Eve Outfit

New Years Eve

Happy Birthday to me...
If I was going out for my birthday,
and I could actually find all of these items,
this is the outfit , I would wear
sadly, I am not going out...
I am babysitting the monkey's for my daughter and son in law,
so they can go out...
oh vey,
the things you do once you become a grandmother.

(Ali and I had fun putting this outfit together on polyvore. Of course,
she signed me up and unless she is around, I don't think I will be able to
manage it without her.  Her being computer savvy and all.  I'm like,
how did you do that?  Show me again...basically, driving her crazy)

A Midi Skirt

This is the perfect summer outfit
I love skirts,
anything past my knees , makes me look frumpy
one of my weaknesses when I shop at thrift stores, are skirts
I have a closet full of skirts
I can't help it
I usually send them to a seamstress to be hemmed

Mushroom Head

Is it just me
or does Ali look like she has a mushroom
growing out of her head?
This was taken way back in May
before another tragedy happened
We lost our favorite Aunt
a Mother almost to most of us
she had moved out to our little piece of the world
to be closer to her sister
they did everything together
almost to the point of driving my Dad crazy
my poor Mother
her world has been rocked
our world's have been rocked
life is too short

Deep in Sadness

Nothing can prepare you
losing your dad
some days I have perpetual tears streaming out of my eyes
like a crying doll
He lived 84 good years on this earth
and it seems too short
I want him back
how selfish of me
I will miss the hanging groceries at my front door
and so much more
I have so many questions
about life after death
I thought there would be time to say goodbye
but there wasn't
he went peacefully

I heard this song the other day
and it helped with the noise that is inside my head

Happy Weekend

Doesn't this look like the best place to sit
and have a cup of coffee
with a piece of chocolate cake or two?

Happy Weekend...

A New Year

No New Year's resolutions for me this year,
I am going to live my life by quotes...
and I vow to eat more peanut butter, wear more dresses and live in the sunlight.
