Now I am the Grandma!

     
       When I was a little girl I got very sick.  I would not drink or eat anything so I ended up dehydrated and in the hospital.  Even when I got home I still would not eat.  My Grandmother, Velma Arthur, said and held me.  She was determined to get me to eat and so she fed me one soggy cheerio at a time and I got better.  Now honestly I was not sure I remembered that from memories or just being told about this so many times. 
   


        Fast forward almost 50 years,now I am the Grandma and I have four little grands of my own.  The youngest is sick and he has not really eaten in almost four days hardly at all.  Today his Daddy asked me to see if I could get him to eat anything.  Well after many tears and a few prayers, the lightbulb came on. I remembered my Grandma feeding me one cheerio at a time. He didn't eat cheerios but I did end up feeding him one dinosaur spaghetti-o and one m&m at a time. 
        I hope someday in his future he might reach back and have at least a little memory of today and how much his Mamaw loved him.  I know I sure treasure my memories of mine.
     What about you, any special grandparent memories?

God bless,
Pat

What If?

Saw this on a friends blog and had to share-Before you gripe about another petty something about your spouse or child-think how how you would feel if you woke up without them tomorrow. Man this hit me in the face and really made me really think! :(
     Then, I found this quote above about what if you woke up today with only what you thanked God for yesterday.  Who or what would you still have?  Would you have your spouse, your kids, your friends, your home, car, anything?  Again, this really made me think and I ashamed to say I am not sure I like my answers to the above questions.
     I cannot change the past as none of us can but I am going to really work on changing my answers and my life.  I know I need to really work on this but I am sharing it in the hope it might help others as well.  
God bless,
Pat


Does Anyone? And a giveaway!

Sometimes I wonder does anyone even read here.  I wonder if this blogs time has come and gone.  I sometimes think, well I will just write for me and use it like a diary of sorts.  I am just not sure what to do.  I really enjoy writing the blog but......
     I decided I am going to continue for at least the month of February and see what happens.  Since February is the month of love and my last name is "Love" and I am trying to decide if I love this blog anymore, I am going to to have a "Love" giveaway. All you have to do to be entered to have a chance to win is leave a comment on this post on my blog.  I will choose a winner from all the comments.


Until next time or until I choose a winner of the giveaway, Pat
