No more Scrabble

My friend John comes home from college today. As I thought about this, I realized that I wont be able to go over with him to Great Grandma's house. We wont be able to go over to play a game of scrabble with her. He wont have to sweep the floor while I take her blood pressure. This really hurts deep down....

....I am thankful for these memories though. Im thankful that he got to meet Great Grandma! And Im thankful that she is no longer sick <3 We thought about visiting her right before John left for his last leg of the semester, but we never did. The day after he left, she passed away. 

I miss you, Grandma! <3

My last memory of her?

Leaning over her bed, a week before she passed away, kissing her forehead, and saying I love you.... <3

Hats for the Holidays! Day 33

(it stayed on today!! lol)

A union made, turban, vintage, awesome, hat! Id say the color on this makes it one of my favorite hats color-wise! Vainly, I will confess, I like the way it makes my blue eyes pop ;~)

Beautiful Blessings - Great Grandma's Life


My Great Grandma passed away late Tuesday night. We have been taking care of her for the past 3 years, and although we knew she was dying, it was startling when I first heard. It took me a day to realize she truly was gone. It honestly didnt seem possible. 

I loved my Great Grandma. <3 Even though I inheirited her stubborness. ;~) On the bright side, I also inherited her love of cheddar cheese! Heehee!! ;~) 

Im so thankful she is no longer sick. She is in Heaven with Jesus! And I expect, Great Grandpa met her there when she arrived. <3 

She lived through the Great Depression, & WWII; from horses and buggies to people living in the International Space Station! 

With 4 children, 13 grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren, and 1 great great grandchild, she was truly blessed!

My beautiful blessing is? Great Grandma! If it werent for her, I wouldnt be here! Thank you God for the 17 1/2 years Ive had with her so I could get to know her. God is so good! <3

I love you, Grandma!

Hats for the Holidays! Day 32

I love the feathery curls on this one <3

Hmmm made in Pittsburgh! I wonder the story behind it! What do you think it could be? 

Hats for the Holidays! Day 31

The hat wouldnt stay on!

Though Im quite sure you can see why ;~)

That's the inside of it...tis a bit quirky but they have to be quirky! Tis an unspoken code among retro hats!
