Yesterday, when I came home from work, Kelvin and Amanda came over and brought me two Knock Out Rose bushes from Wyatt and William for my Mother’s Day gift! I love roses! Then I got to watch Wyatt while Amanda and Kelvin went to a movie and ate out. Jessie was kind enough to watch little Will for us.
My Knock-out Roses
Then this morning, Amanda, Kelvin and the kids surprised me and came to church! Charity and her children were there also! It was so nice to have family there ! I even got to see one of my cousins that I hadn’t seen in a while there!!! Charity’s two daughters got up and sang some songs and they were so good! Wyatt loved their singing so much that he stood up in the pew and started swaying back and forth, clapping his little hands, and God bless his little heart; singing along with them, the only song he knows…
OLD MCDONALD HAD A FARM…E - I – E – I - O!!!
Sitting in Church with Maw-maw
After church, I was taken out to eat at the Chop House in Madison…with my all my kids (Kelvin too!) and my grandchildren there…We had to wait a long time outside the restaurant, they were that busy, but it was worth it…the food was delicious! This was the best Mother’s Day that I have had in a long time and the best part was having my young-uns sitting beside me at church.

Dan and I got home this afternoon, and went to see my mama out at the Nursing home. She didn’t know me at first, but after we were there for a while, she knew me. I bought her a new pair of pants and a nice blouse and also a new house coat…along with some candy and an ice cold coke and she was happy. I also cleaned her winter clothes out her closet and put some springtime clothes in for her.

My mama was a good mama and her life wasn’t an easy one.
I remember how when I went out on a date, she never went to bed until I walked in the front door and she could make sure I was okay. That use to bug me as a teen, but you know, after you have teens ( and even older children) of your own, you began to understand some things….
Like, no matter how old your children get, you will still worry about them….
No matter how old you get, you would still lay down your life for them, if it came to that.
“Doodle-Doo”.. the rooster at my house
Being a mother is one of the hardest jobs there is, but also one of the most rewarding…
I wouldn’t take a million dollars for the hugs and the sloppy wet kisses that my children gave me when the were little …
Or the “I love you mama” or the “ night-night mama” that will live forever in my heart and soul.
That is what’s so special about being a grandma…You get to live it all over again and this time, you know what’s most important about child raising….
L – O – V - E
And you’ve lived long enough to know that….
All those fancy “bringing up baby” books you read…
Well, didn’t amount to a hill of beans, did they ?
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
