Saturday LESSONS......

Guess, 'bout 4-5" of this white stuff/aka SNOW!! Started Fri. am, finally stopped Sat.
Hard times....lead to Hard Lessons in REALITY 101!
We woke up Sat. morning...NO Power. It was already COLD in the house.
Our Oil lamps do provide some light relief!
As a young child....we lived places, where there was NO insulation....warming front body side, then the "backside" front of Space heaters. Nights were spent bundled/huddled well into overnight heat! I DO remember...
Waking up COLD, was a really big SLAP, into a past life!
I immediately began piling on clothing! LOL  LotZa them! and finally, found some warmth.
Later in the day.....Marc found us a propane Heater, to use, if power stayed off. late afternoon....Power came ON, Lamar got his TV back, and I was on FB....catching Up. LOL
Talk about taking things for granted!!! I do. {for a brief few minutes, we got Power.....Heat felt gOOd....then gone again!}
The wonder is....what did w…

Happy to arise each morning, get things done, and ENjoy my life. (A bit slower, on the movin thang, but to go/do things necessary each day.)
At this time in life....HAPPY to have a Great, Loving Family; 2 Wonderful SONS; beautiful GRANDkids; Awesome Friends; Amazing Husband (36yrs. now!); never forgetting..2 Loving Parents, who paved my life path&growth.

We had agreed yesterday....Lamar do Biscuits, I'd cook the Bacon{takes 2 pks. to feed, when Hunter is w/us!!}, and Marc would finish ---w/grits, gravy and eggs.
Ok. Lamar was just beginning the biscuit mixing....and I was on the 1st batch of Bacon.
Marc runs me out!....wakes up the kids....and tells them, they will help him cook b'fast!! {didn't think that would "go over", but they jumped in there!}

BLUE BIRD story ~

Woke up from nap, 'bout 2:30pm....out onto Porch.
First thing I spotted---beautiful BLUE bird---sitting on Marc's truck! Ofcourse, I ran for the Camera!{he had flown from there!} Then...spotted him again.
wOw! It's a pair of Blues....
He moved onto our truck bed....and then....
there's the Female, on top of the birdhouse...
back Together...again  {this was so EXciting!}
He stuck his Head inside...for a look/see! He Knew I was watching??? He flew over to Marc's truck again...then, up into the tree (watching) Female came back again...
He came back (saw me?) and just sat there! They both flew away.  How wondermous, to witness this "event".  Backstory ~ this is the same birdhouse wrens/chickadees "fought" over a couple yrs. ago! Chickadees have been "scouting" it for a couple of weeks. Hmm....may be a fight for control this yr.!! It was A.Ma.Zing to see this unfold. We had a couple of "visitor" Blue Birds yrs. ago....but, never …


Image has been 36yrs. we have been Married!!
Jan. 3, 1981 I had no clue then, how this day, would Forever change my life! Lamar likes to laugh...because, My knees were "knocking" and he, was in a calm place! Lamar also married--two rowdy young boys! He gave them Love and Guidance, they needed. Lamar is the Best example/Mentor--a gOOd man...He Loves them, as if, they are His bio Sons....and they've Always FELT that. GOD truly Blessed this family, on that day! All marriages have ups/downs, happiness/sadness, good health/sickness. We've had our share of all that...and More.  All the way on this journey, I've always known...Lamar is MY Rock/FUN partner/best support. No doubts. As we Celebrate these 36ys...I have to give Kudos, to our Families for their support. Also, some of THE bestest Friends, to help us thru some hard times...and just plain have FUN!  Thank you All...we Love ya. GOD is gOOd...All the time y'all. I Know now, that it Is True ~ Love grows,…
