As we celebrated Mom on Mothers` Day
A gift from her son in a fashioned way
Mom’s not able to open presents now
It`s sad to know she doesn`t know how
If she really knew who her present was from
She`d say, "oh, it`s a housecoat for Mom!"
If you`d only come to see her now and then
You would know the kind of gifts to send
Mom doesn`t wear housecoats anymore
She needs something warm as she paces the floor
If you only knew of the things she could use
There`s a lot of gifts you could choose
We celebrate another day for bearing presents
With her soft warm smile and thoughts so pleasant
She`ll be looking for your gift and who it`s from
Knowing it`s always "a housecoat for mom!"
You May Run But You Can`t Hide
Someday you may wake up and easily find
You have forgotten you`re losing your mind
Someone was here for you with arms open wide
You may run but you can`t hide.
You’ll be sorry you left us and I’m sure you will
For one day you may find your world standing still
Your mom raised you and stood by your side
You may run but you can`t hide.
In years to come you’ll see you were wrong
That your mom just needed to belong
Never let you down although she cried
You may run but you can’t hide.
So think of it brother you are her son
She just wanted to love you and needed someone
She may have forgotten but Mom had her pride
You may run but you can`t hide.
It’s Too Late Now
After watching mama suffering so
Many places she could go
Sisters shared the caregiving somehow
Why dear brother, it’s too late now.
You sat back while we all worried
In our daily lives being rushed and hurried
Never cared if we wiped a brow
Sorry dear brother, it’s too late now.
The time has come for mama to leave my home
So many times I felt alone
Now you come in and want to take a bow
Think dear brother, it’s too late now.
One day you may think about this and see
What your ignoring did to me
You’ll stand outside that Pearly Gate
Think dear brother, before it’s too late.

Celebrating in Heaven…
Today is the birthday of our Mother, so dear
In our hearts we mourn her so
Memories of our loved one we hold so near
Never wanting to let her go
Hold on to her hand ever so tight
Dear loved ones who have gone before
While she celebrates in Heaven tonight
Our dear Mother whom we all adore
She'll watch down while we are at her grave
Placing flowers to commend her birth
She was loving, gentle and oh so brave
While she spent her time here on earth
Vickie, hold her tight and give her a kiss
From all of us left behind
We know she is happy and in pure bliss
She is free now and not confined
Her memory returned to her that sad, cold night
When God called this angel to stay
To dwell in Heaven with all of you tonight
Celebrating today, her birthday!
Happy 89th Birthday, Mama
We love you and miss you-
Judy, PeeWee, Sylvia (Tip)and Elaine
This is on Christmas Day 1972 after a gathering of all the family at the Alamance Lutheran Church Clubhouse in Alamance, North Carolina - oh the times we as a family had spending Christmas dinners there with loved ones. So many years have passed by - times have changed; families don't gather as they did in earlier times. It was the utmost importance to our mother we always visit and do things together - as a family - we do try and do things together always and for Mama ...
You remembered then where you came from
You remembered your life and all of your years
You're now in Heaven without any fears -

Obama spoke of a ``new era of responsibility'' and of ``our collective failure to make hard choices and prepare the nation for a new age.''
``At these moments,'' he told the nation, ``America has carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high office, but because We the People have remained faithful to the ideals of our forbearers, and true to our founding documents.''
He spoke of himself as ``a man whose father less than 60 years ago might not have been served at a local restaurant'' yet one who now could take its most sacred oath.
Ladies and Gentlemen; our new President -
On this special day in the history of the United States - Senator Ted Kennedy had a seizure during the innagural luncheon with President and The First Lady. I pray for his speedy recovery and that he will soon be well.
Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., ``It took a lot out of him. Seizures are exhausting.'' Even so, Dodd quoted Kennedy as saying, ``I'll be OK, I'll see you later'' as he was put into the ambulance. ``The good news is he's gonna be fine,'' Dodd added.
T0day exactly 48 years ago, John F. Kennedy was sworn in as President on January 20, 1961... May he rest in peace.
President Obama and the First Lady walks along the parade route to the White House greeting the people who braved the cold weather to be there and get a glimpse of this day of history.

These photos were made Monday, October 6th, the day Kiara got her cast wet taking a bath. Out of concern for problems I took Kiara to Durham to the doctor so it could be checked. Much to my surprise the break had healed and the cast taken off - Yeah, much freedom to Kiara and look where we ended up after picking up Katie after school!
More jewelry to see -
Jungle Green - 8" Bracelet
The look of this bracelet made with two different shades of green and silver spacers was an idea after spending the day with a few of my little ones. I have to sometimes call them " my little monkeys" the way they climb and play.
Smokey Ice - 18" Necklace
I love the smokey look of the beads in this necklace, accented with small black shiny beads and clear with a touch of black seed beads sets this necklace off for an elegant look for any evening out or for the office!
Champagne And Pearls - 7 1/2" Bracelet
A delightful looking bracelet on anyones' wrist made with cream colored pearls and champagne crystal beads.
Rootbeer Float - 18" Necklace
Made with brown and beige beads accented with rootbeer colored spacers. This reminds of the sixties when I was a young girl going to the Davis St. Pharmacy on Sunday afternoons with my cousins and sisters to get an ice cream cone or a famous 'Rootbeer Float'.
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT AND I WILL COME COMMENT AT YOUR SITE!

I want to personally "Thank" all who participated in the care for my "Lil' BooBoo" - and a big "Thanks" to Julia's bestfriend, Jennifer Bryd, without her holding Kiara and Mawmaw crying we would probably still be there -hehehe!

Fall is my favorite time of year!
Time for canning fruits of the harvest -
corn, tomatoes, cucumbers (pickles)
anything that will keep in a jar ...
Beautiful - Wonderful Fall - Enjoy!!!!
All summer I canned salsa and spaghetti sauce
and passed it around to family and friends.
Kosher - Lime & Bread and Butter Pickles
Fall means apples from trees so tall
She thoroughly enjoyed the masher before it went in the sink!
Cleaned it all the way to the end...
Up so early in the morning
Before the sun begins to rise
Stretching, yawning sleepily
Splashing water to my eyes
Breakfast feast is on the table
Grandpa seated in his chair
Oh such a glorious feeling
Welcomed spring is in the air
Down the food and clean the dishes
Out the door we go
Grandma is ready for the planting
While Grandpa works the hoe
My job now is to follow along
With a bucket of water and a dipper
Birdies singing in the trees
Makes us all feel so chipper!
Throughout the summer
We hoe and weed
To care for the cultured land
Plants of all kind are growing
At the sun and rains’ command
Now the time has come to pick
Bending, stretching what a bargain
With pure delight of our finds
From Grandma’s veggie garden.
