- I have been married to my childhood sweetheart for 42 wonderful years. I have been blessed with one daughter who is grown and gone! She and her hubby have blessed us with a precious grandchild, Darbee Rae. She is eight years old and the sunshine in our days. I have always been a stay at home maid, cook, doctor, babysitter, taxi, wife, mother, and grandmother. I enjoy crafting. My interests include primitives, vintage and colonial styles. I love decorating my home. I enjoy traveling with my hubby and friends, reading, and trying different recipes. I am a Christian and enjoy activities within my church. I hope you enjoy reading about my daily adventures in crafting, shopping, and enjoying life thru the eyes of my darling grand daughter.

Pausing...To Give Thanks
Giving thanks today for something most of us take for granted daily......The gift of our sight. We took a family member who is legally blind to the Atlanta Low Visual Center to see if there was anything they could do to help her function better on a daily basis. I was amazed at the merchandise that is available to help those who are less fortunate than myself live a more normal life. Sitting in the waiting area, watching people as they came in and out made me realize how blessed I am. Most of us wake in the morning and see the dawn of another day, see our families as they come and go, go to our computers, read the morning paper, and then get busy with our day and never think what life would be like without our sight. Tonight I will say an extra thank you when I say my prayers for the gift of my sight and a prayer for those who have to deal with this handicap. I have nothing but respect for those who accept their disability and with such determination face each day as a challange . These people are to be admired. Look your husband in the face, look into your children's eyes and be thankful for this wonderful gift. Have a good evening. Until we meet again.......
